Ras Tafari Renaissance

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,


I welcome you all to one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, more than likely have come to the Torah portion of Ki-Těitz’ěi-כִּי־תֵצֵא .  On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5773, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 10thי , & the 11thיא , day of the Hebrew month of the month of Elūl-אֱלוּל , for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is also known as Beweah’ Ğeezěy-በወጣህ ጊዜ also for the 10th-፲ , & the 11th-፲፩ , of the month of (ነሐሴ)Nehäsey.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).


Deuteronomy 21:10- 25:19

Isaiah 54: 1-10

Matthew 5: 27-30

I Corinthians 5: 1-5

In this parsha(study) of the Scriptures, we shall go through topics that cover, laws, statutes & commandments, mostly in the civil & domestic life of the children of Israel.  We’ll begin in the post-warfare ordinances, deal with other governing principles, including inheritance, child rearing, humane civility, farming & host of other issues.


The children of Israel were presented with the orders of God, through Moses, to deal with domestic regulations in the ways that were suitable and pleasing to God.  The treatment of captives, especially of the women of other nations was one in question, in the ordinances of warfare.

[Deut. 21: 10-17]


Also, in this category of issues, the children of Israel were to administer to wayward son, in ways that would be beneficial to, not only be sustainable to one’s household, but to the nation’s, as well.

[Deut. 21: 18-23]

CHRIST's Parable of the Prodigal Son [Luke 15: 11-32]
CHRIST‘s Parable of the Prodigal Son [Luke 15: 11-32]

The children of Israel, were not to be a wayward people, speaking with “fork-tongues“, living in ungodly ways, but always making way to become righteous by words & deeds.  Thus, the Laws of Brotherhood, not only within the Hebrew community, but other nations, the same would be the norm for any Israelite.

[Deut. 22: 1-8]

When it came to Hebrew farming principles, from the basics to large-scale agriculture practices, the children of Israel were to adhere certain commandments all-in-the-same.  This takes in account, the treatment of the animals within their possession, also.

[Deut. 22: 9-12]

"...As for me & my house, we shall serve YHWH..." [Josh. 24: 15]
1)”…Speak to the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:…”[Numb. 15: 38]; 2)…”thou shall make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself…”[Deut. 22: 12] {Tz’itz’iyot-צִיצִת or Gadil-גָּדִל}
"...As for me & my house, we shall serve YHWH..." [Josh 24: 15]
“…As for me & my house, we shall serve YHWH…” [Josh 24: 15]

In the upkeep of the laws, statutes, & commandments of God to the children of Israel, upon the sudden death of a Hebrew, who had a wife (but was a childless, widowhad married, but bore no children), & was survived by a brother, the surviving brethren was obliged to uphold specific responsibilities in procuring the lineage of his deceased brother.  This law was one of intricacy, among others dealing with the Innocent Wife, being provided with protection within Israel.

[Deut. 22: 13-19]

Im My Brothers Keeper

In the arrangements for dealing with divers regulatory issues among the children of Israel, the Hebrews were to adhere to God’s principles in dealing with peoples of other nations, entreating their camp, holy places and such, but also, not succumbing to being a oppressors or whores & whoremongers, (ie. sexual offenders, rapists, etc.), or extortionists.

[Deut. 23: 1-25]

*Note to Study-in-Depth: Ammon & Moab-10th Generation*


: Edom(aka Esau) & Egypt, ABHOR NOT!



The children of Israel, also had learned from Moses, by way of the God of Israel(El-elohe Israel_אל אלהי ישראל), the manners, in & of, the laws for divorce or separation in marital affairs.

[Deut. 24: 1-4]

…& more detailed, laws, statutes & commandments, were placed in the midst of the children of Israel, for them to heed to in the divers regulations.  But, with all of these regulations, and adherence to God’s laws, the Hebrews were not to forget about the Amalekites; as eternal enemies.

(Exod. 17: 16_For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn [that] the LORD [will have] war with Amalek from generation to generation.)

[Deut. 24: 5- 25:19]
