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, nonetheless studied either the Torah portion of W(V)ezot HaBerachah-וְזֹאת הַבְּרָכָה, from the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5775 year, this Sabbath day, (as the Hebraic year comes to a close) would probably be accounted for as the 9th-, & the 10th-, day of the Hebrew month of the month of Tishrei-תִּשְׁרִי .  (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 known also as, YeBarekebat Bereket Yihich Nat-የባረከባት በረከበት ይህች ናት.  This would calculate as the 13th-, & the 14th-, of the month of Meskerém-መስከረም.  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).

Readings:

Deuteronomy 33:1- 34:12

Joshua 1: 1-18

Revelations 22: 1-5

On this Sabbath day, Moses blesses the children of Israel, before he passes on atop Mount Nebo.

wezot habarakh'ah - parsha (Mount_Nebo)

Moses, recalled Jacob’s blessing to his twelve sons, who become the progenitors of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.  Moses blessed each tribe, individually in the community of Israel.

[Deut. 33: 1-27]

wezot habarakh'ah - parsha (blessing_israel)

Upon the passing of Moses, & there arose not another prophet like to Moses, among Israel, since then.  But, even so, Joshua succeeded Moses, & led the children of Israel, over the river Jordan.

[Deut. 34: 1-12]

…Israel mourned the passing of Moses for thirty days….

for there would never be another that knew God face-to-face, to date

Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations wishes that all have had a peaceful, Yom Kippur.  The Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year on the Hebraic/Jewish calendar. The tenth day of the Seventh month

[Lev. 23: 26]

Yom-Kippur

Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting, and intensive prayer, where many usually spend most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur(or the “Day of Atonement”) completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days(or the “Days of Awe”-Yamim Noraim-ימים נוראים‎).

Some scholars, and others say there is a link to Kapporet, the “mercy seat” or covering of the Ark of the Covenant.

yom-kippur (Kapperet_Ark-of-the-Covenant)

During the Days of Awe, a Jewish/Hebrew person tries to amend his or her behavior and seek forgiveness for wrongs done against God and against other human beings. (usually “atoning” or making amends for wrongdoings from the previous year)

yom-kippur2

As one of the most culturally significant in Hebrew holidays, Yom Kippur is known and observed as a memorial by Hebrews, Jewish people,Israelites, & many others the like across cultural heritages.  Also known in many Hebraic circles of study or schools of thought as a “Sabbath of Sabbaths.”

Coming from Ethiopic Hebraic perspective, Yom Kippur or the “Day of Atonement,” is known as Astesryo Q’en/Seryet Q’en-አስተስርዮ ቀን / ሰርየት ቀን.

yom-kippur14 (astesryo qen-day of atonement) repentance

As the holiest day of the year, the “Day of Atonement,” one of the main reasons for the season is repentance.  Repentance, leading toward choosing to live as a Ts’addikim– צדיקים, or “one of the righteous“. On the flipside, one could choose to become or continue in the ways of the Reshai’im-רשעים, or the “wicked.”

This choice is to made, because the Ts’addikim will be written into the Sefer HaKH’aim-ספר החיים, or the “Book of Life,” & the Rashai’im to the “Book of Death.”

Ethiopian Jews

This Sabbath of Sabbaths [שבת שבתון] was to be a Sabbath of “Return“, hence the Hebrew term for atoning for sin….
