THE ETHIOPIAN (click on image to view Xlarge)
The Ethiopian Church claims its earliest origins from the royal official said to have been baptized by Philip the Evangelist on the road from Jerusalem to Gaza.
"Then the angel of the Lord sai
d to Pilipos, Start out and go south to the road that leads down from Jerusalem to Gaza. So he set out and was on his way when he caught sight of an Ethiopian. This man was a eunuch, a high official of the Kandake (Candace) Queen of Ethiopia in charge of all her treasure."
...So Pilipos ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” ...The place in the Scripture which he read was this:
"He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
In His humiliation His justice was taken away,
And who will declare His generation?
For His life is taken from the earth.”
So the eunuch answered Pilipos and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?”
Pilipos opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture,
preached to him Yeshua.
