It seems to me that the most mysterious, Biblical man mentioned in the Bible has been brought to our attention two times in that past two months via our travels. First, in June, we had an exciting time in Israel with Bob Cornuke of BASE Institute. There were many elements of discovery, one of which may lead to archeological evidence of Melchizedek. If you haven’t had an opportunity yet to listen to Chuck Missler’s new DVD on this mysterious person, we encourage you to purchase it for yourself. Please follow the link here to reach Koinonia House in order to buy this new DVD.
Next, we had another compelling mention of Melchizedek on our recent trip to Ethiopia. We visited one of the mountain-top, rock churches located outside of Axum in the Northern part of the country. We have a friend who has written a book about Melchizedek from information gleaned from ancient manuscripts buried in the Ethiopian churches. The book is entitled “The Hidden and Untold History of the Jewish People and the Ethiopians” by Dr. Fikre Tolossa. It is an informative collection of the precious history that has been collected in ancient documents and remains safe in Ethiopia. After reading Fikre’s book, we visited some of the unique places that house the manuscripts themselves. This would be a great trip for those of you who enjoy great archeology, lovely lodges and great hikes! One of the great surprises we were able to experience was a 3rd Century B.C., Christian church high atop a mountain that holds a painting of Melchizedek. Adjacent to the painting, was the church’s Holy of Holies, as seen here. The alcove represented here is where some of the manuscripts are kept. We will be taking a small group to visit these Christian sites in 2016. Let us know if you are interested in accompanying us for this tour. Ethiopia is always a wonderful surprise to those who are able to travel there. You can also travel this fall, October 2014 and visit the City of David with Tim Remington.
