Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,
I welcome you all to again to Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations, for the Ethiopic celebration of Timk(Q)et. Timket, is the Ethiopian-Christian celebration in a symbolic manner of “Baptism” or “Epiphany.” Today, Ethiopian Orthodox (Tewahedo/ Tewahido) Christians will be celebrating the feast of Timkat, the most important holiday for the Ethopian Orthodox faithful. TimQat begins on January 19th and is usually celebrated for three days.
Celebrated on the 10th day of the (ወኀ)month of T’ir (ጥር), it commemorates the Adoration of the Magi, who followed the Star of the East, & the Baptism of Christ.
In other references Epiphany, could also be commemorated for the wedding at Cana, also.
[see Mrk chpt.2; Jhn chpt.2]
In the Ethiopian Orthodox-Tewahedo Church, it is the most important festival in the year, seeing as how the Tabot – ታቦት, or the representation of the Ark of the Covenant is wrapped in priestly cloth and lead in procession for a reenactment of the Baptism of Christ, in the Jordan River.
Many Eastern Orthodox Christians have various celebrations, rites, an rituals for the feast day, as well.
