See 1 kinge about Kebra Nagast…. Lists with This Book. The majority of this book is pretty great, and I was sure I’d give it a perfect rating until I reached the last 11 or 12 chapters.
At that point, the structure switched completely from narratives and interesting comparisons between Jewish and Christian concepts to simply listing “prophecies” allegedly made about Jesus in the Old Testament. They were not in the most concise order, and some of the quotes were altered or taken out of context so the comparisons would work better.
After a few tue The majority of this book is pretty great, and I was sure I’d give it a perfect rating until I reached the last 11 or 12 chapters. After a few chapters, the structure switched back and became more acceptable, but this time the issue was several disturbingly anti-Jewish passages.
I’m not completely stunned that a book telling how the Ark of the Covenant left Israel and resided in Ethiopia — an Orthodox Christian country — would contain some anti-Jewish sentiments, but it gets pretty vicious towards the end.
I’ve read many books I didn’t agree with, but it just brought down the epic nature of the book that was established in the first or so chapters. Maybe it’s just me.
Beautiful Ethiopian version of the Bible. Mar 20, Louisa rated it really liked it Shelves: When I nagqst an old manuscript copy of the Kebra Nagast in a church in Addis Abeba, I knew I wanted to find out what was said on those fragile, yellowing pages. I can’t read the ancient Ge’ez script, but this translation nnagast Sir Wallis Budge appears to be well done.
The first chapters relate a large part of the Old Testament, albeit in a very condensed form: Although the stories are slightly different from those in the Ov and much shorter, I think it is fascinating to see how they have spread to Northern Africa to become part of culture in Ethiopia.
When we arrive at Solomon naggast the construction of the temple, the Kebra Negast takes an interesting turn: When she returns to Ethiopia, she carries a child who is to become King Menyelek I of Ethiopia, the first in a series of monarchs who, Ethiopians believe, all descended from Solomon. Sir Wallis Budge added several introductory chapters, all very enlightening: I am glad to finally have read this, if only to have a better understanding of the traditions in Ethiopia, its many churches and religious holidays.
Aug 04, Emma rated it it was ok Shelves: A curious mixture of the old and new testament with a long addition about how the Ethiopians stole the Ark of the Covenant, apparently with Yahweh’s blessing. It’s more a book of rather garbled history that is in part made up the king of Rome was a Kebea than a book of wisdom.
And as far as wisdom goes, it comes across rather misogynistic women can not ruleanti-Semitic Sep 14, r. Bentinck rated it it was amazing. Helped me connect with my roots.
Another purchase when I was in my Ark of the Covenant phase. Some say that it was stolen by Menyelek, son of the Queen of Sheba and King David, out of revenge for being spurned by his father. Menyelek brought it to Ethiopia where it sits today. The Templars followed the clues found when kibgs dug beneath the site of Temple in Israel, and on their journey to Ethiopia built churches throughout Africa, many of which can be seen today.
A wonderful theory if anything!
Really enjoyed this book. The translation and editing was done really well for such a old text.
The Queen of Sheeba – Kebra Nagast The Glory of Kings PDF
Now I understand why there is such a strong Jewish presence in Ethiopia. It also explains why the people of this country were so receptive to Christianity. Since they were well aware of the prophecies concerning the Messiah, they would have understood that Jesus fulfilled them. Also enjoyed reading about a tge who was a kjngs in such ancient times.
Jul 27, Fiona Robson rated it really liked it Shelves: This was absolutely fascinating. However, I couldn’t help wondering if the stealing of the Ark of the Covenant was really just to big themselves up, like when the Scots pretended that they had the Stone of Scone all along, even though they were quite happy to see our “fake” one returned to them and never produced the real one!
It describes the ark of the covenant leaving Solomons kingdom, stolen by the son the Queen conceived during her visit to him.
