Unerstanding The History Of Yahwah's Covenant People In Ethiopia

821 words - 4 pages

My Jewish brothers and sisters from Rome, I understand that you have some questions on the history of Yahweh’s covenant people in Ethiopia. I hope to quell your curiosity as best as I know how, but before I do, I must make sure that we are speaking of the same people. You see, the Ethiopian people that I speak of come from the kingdom of Cush and not necessarily the geographical territory of Cush. Also, the people I will be speaking of come from the region to the west of the Red Sea. Now, that we are all on the same page, let us begin.
In order to tell a truthful history, however brief, I must divulge both the good and the bad. And as a people, we have not always been believers or even peaceful with Yahweh’s people. For example, if you look in the book of 2 Chronicles 14:9-15 you will find there a man by the name of Zerah. During the reign of Asa of Judah, he organized a war against Israel with almost double the amount of men that Israel had, yet the Lord was on the side of Israel and Judah and Zerah and his army was completely defeated.
However, not all of our dealings with Yahweh’s people have been negative, in fact, it seems as though we have had more positive encounters than negative, and many of these encounters can be found within the Testament that we all cherish. In 2 Samuel 18:19-23 you will find the story of the Ethiopian official who gave King David the news of the death of his son Absalom. Ebed-melech was another Ethiopian official who served King Zedekiah of Judah right before Babylon came and destroyed the southern kingdom. However, even though Ebed-melech served the king and feared for his life, he respected and honored Yahweh and His prophet Jeremiah more and in Jeremiah 38:7-13 we see how he worked to save the prophet Jeremiah’s life, which Yahweh later rewarded him for. And surprisingly enough, you will find that if you read the very first verse of the first chapter of the book of Zephaniah, that the prophet himself was Ethiopian. However, probably the most notable and recent occurrence of Ethiopians’ interactions with the people of Yahweh would be with the Ethiopian Chief Financial Officer who the apostle Philip...
