Queen Of Sheba
This is a complete English translation of the famous Ethiopian work ",The Kebra Nagast", -- ",The Glory of the Kings of Ethiopia.", Compiled by a Coptic priest in the 6th century AD, from much older material, ",The Kebra Nagast", is a remarkable mixture of legends and traditions, some historical and some of a mythic quality, derived from the Old Testament and the later Rabbinic writings and from Egyptian (both pagan and Christian), Arabian and Ethiopian sources. The principle theme of the work is the descent of the Kings of Ethiopia from the union of Solomon, King of Israel, and the Queen of Sheba. Woven through the story are many important narratives, including prophecies in the Old Testament that concern the Messiah as applied to Jesus Christ, the history of the rebel angels, and legends of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba in the Koran.
