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, have come to the Torah portion of NoaH’-נֹחַ, On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5774, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 30th-ל, of the Hebrew month of Tisrei-תִּשְׁרֵי, & the 1st-א, day of the Hebrew month of MarKH’eswan-מַרְחֶשְׁוָן, or simply known as “KH’eshwan-חֶשְׁוָן,” 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, in what may be known as the year 2006/2026/7506, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the 24th-፪፬, & the 25th-፪፭, on the (ወርኀ)month of Meskerem-መስከረም.  In the Scriptures, what is also known as Ye’Noh’-የኖኅ.  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).

In continuation of the Torah studies, on this Sabbath the times of Noah, are the focus.  The study portions deal mostly with the Great Flood, (which has a significant resemblance of the Epic of Gilgamesh mythos).

This portion also deals with the building of Noah’s Ark, which God had commanded him to build for the coming of the Great Flood.

The studies also bring us to the truths and lies of the alleged “Curse of Ham.”

The Sabbath readings also conclude with the story of the Tower of Babel.

  1. Shalom Lidj Yefdi, since InI third eye gets wider every day this part of the Torah makes me look at some things differently just as the Torah as a whole does for everything. In particular The Great Flood reminds me of Hurricane Katrina, I say this because just like our people during Beresheit who were disobeying the Lord’s commands, the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and everywhere else that was affected were doing the exact same thing.
