the 'Exodus' most Jews followed Moses to the known route through
the Red sea and Sinai. At that time I believe an other group, either
because they lost the main flow of people escaping or
because of a disagreement, gone south, a safe and not guarded route as Pharaoh's soldiers followed
the main group on their way out of Egypt!
Their destination was the highlands of Ethiopia, a known route
to many. As we know in the old days the Pharaohs used to get
their Elephants, other goods and maybe even slaves through that route !
These group of
Jews had only to follow riverbeds and finally arrive in a very fertile
land: the Ethiopian Highlands! For many the Ethiopian highlands was like
promised land! In the oldest scriptures, river Ghion the biggest river in Ethiopia, was
the second river flowing out of Eden! Today is called the blue Nile!
Many events are leading
to the above idea:
- There is mention of Ethiopians
in Homer's Iliad and Odyssey,
- Moses wife was an
Ethiopian! Written in Psalms and in Numbers
chapter *Please read
yourself in your own Bible!
Repetitive mention of
Ethiopia in the old
Testament (see last paragraph)
Herodotus very accurate
description at 500 BC of this route and the mention of an old town of 'Meroe'
existing between Sudan and the joint of Takase and Nile river!
Despite what the
historians and scholars believe, it is only natural to have a very
ancient civilization in the fertile Ethiopian Highlands! Let us not
forget that Lucy and Salam, two very old standing 'pithicus afarencis'
were found in the Ethiopian highlands!
