Reading the Kebra Negast

April 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

That’s what this blogger is doing. The first two posts are here and here. Here’s a passage:

It’s interesting to note that the Kebra Nagast, at least as we have it now, is fully Christian. When God is about to make Adam it says, “then the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit said: ‘Let us make man in Our similitude and likeness.’” It then goes on to talk about the Incarnation as the “Second Zion the Second Adam, who was our Saviour Christ. This is our Glory and our faith, our hope and our life, the Second Zion.”
