Ethiopia: King Solomon The Queen Of Sheba And The Black Jews — Part 1

King Solomon receives the Queen of Sheba

King Solomon receives the Queen of Sheba. This beautiful example of medieval stained glass dates from 1180AD and is the Second Typological Window in the north quire aisle of Canterbury Cathedral – Image: Sacred Destinations

The modern history of the Jews in Ethiopia begins with the reunification of Ethiopia in the mid-19th century during the reign of Theodore II. At that time the Jewish community, known as Beta Israel, numbered between 200,000 to 350,000 people.

This little known story, with roots that reach back to the time of Abraham, starts with the union of the great King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. In Part 2 a promise is fulfilled. They are welcomed by the Jewish state, like prodigal sons returning to the land of Israel.

The name Beta Israel originated in the 4th century AD when the community refused to convert to Christianity during the rule of Abraha and Atsbeha

Perhaps the earliest Hebraic people came to the land of Ethiopia during the time of the prolonged drought and famine in Canaan at the time of Abraham (1812-1637BC).

Here on the southern tip of Africa it’s 7:50pm and the sun is sinking on the beautiful Bot River Estuary.

One can just make out the estuary mouth at extreme left on the horizon.

The Bottle of Le Good Life

The Bottle of le Good Life

The Bottle of le Good Life -- a poem by Anthony Smith.
Photograph by Anthony Smith (click to enlarge)

The beauty she possesses when she smiles with her eyes
Outshines the stars in the brightly lit night skies.
The ecstasy of her sultry eyes could not be compared
With the tranquillity of sunset and sunrise.

She is like an engine of beauty volted with love.
It’s just like finding a diamond in the rough.
She is like a beautiful dove that tempts me
Into something only sweeter than her love.

The clarity and soothness of her voice
Makes my heart pound without choice

She’s like a bottle of le Good life
Enriched with bubbles of sparkling personality.
