established through the reading of many books including of course
the Old Testament!
must say that I side with Graham Hancock's suggestions published in his
book 'The Sign and the Seal' which I did read several times and highly recommend
it as a good source of information!
The Falashas in Ethiopia are Jews
believed to be the descendants of Jews who traveled from Israel during
king Manase's time around the sixth century BC!
There are many reasons to believe this:
- Their traditions
and religious ceremonies are not at all like Jews in Israel now, they
obey traditions mentioned only in the Old Testament! There are travelers
testimonies like Francisco Alvarez, a Portuguese visitor on the year
1502 and after ... who were surprised at the Falashas habits and
traditions and very clearly stated that 'the Falashas habits reassemble
very old traditions indeed date back to Solomon times!'
- Their priests are
called 'Kafas' as in the Old testament and not Rabbis as they are
called in Israel today...
