ለእመቦ እዝን ሰማኢ ዘቦ

በብሉይ፣ በሐዲስ ስለተመሠረተው ኢትዮጵያዊ ሥርዐተ-አምልኮ

በያግጣጫው ጩኸት! በምክንያትም ያለምክንያትም መደናቆር! እስከ ማእዜኑ/እስከ መቼ?
(ለእመቦ እዝን ሰማኢ ዘቦ = ምናልባት ሰሚ ጆሮ ያለው ቢገኝ፦ ድንቁ የቅኔ ፈጣሪ፣ የትርጓሜ ሊቅ /ብርሃን አድማሱ  ጀንበሬ በቅኔ መነሻነት ያሉትን እንስማ እስኪ፦)
………………………………………………………………………………………
ይህም በየቀኑ እንግዳ እንግዳ ድርሰት እየደረሱ ለእግዚአብሔር ምስጋና ማቅረብ በብሉይ በሐዲስ የታዛዘ ነው እንጂ፤ ልብ ወለድ ነገር አይደለም። ከምን ይገኛል ቢሉ?

Of Western Scholars

Scholars vs. Looters 
There is no denying the fact that there have always been pillagers, some as mean as the devil and some as cunning as Jacob. Ethiopia knows both kinds, indeed. But we need to distinguish. True scholars are as far removed from malicious looters, as is the east from the west!

On Prof. Getatchew Haile

[An excerpt from a paper presented to]
The XV International Conference of Ethiopian Studies
Hamburg University, 21-25 July 2003
The Intellectual Legacy of the Ethiopian Church
A Philosophico-Hermeneutical Reappraisal  of “Andəmta”
 Fisseha Tadesse Feleke 
....................................................................................................................................

Getatchew Haile’s Phenomenal Insights and his “Bahrä Hasab”

What makes Getatchew’s insights phenomenal? Few points may help visualise. For Getatchew, “The origin of Ethiopian Studies is naturally in Ethiopia and in the works of Ethiopian writers.”[1]Being the first to teach in Amharic at AAU, his proposal to establish a chair for Qene[2] there—even if it seems to have been totally forgotten—bears witness of his aspiration for intellectual development rooted in tradition. Needless to say, what would have been done with the EMML, if not for those brilliantly compiled catalogues of his, and the editions and commentaries he has published?[3]

ለማኅበረ ቅዱሳን

እናንተ ፍዝ ኾናችኍ
ሌላውንም እያፈዘዛችኍ
እንቀጥላለን ካላችኍ

The Remnant Motif - 3


“Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD”:
The Remnant Motif in the Book of Psalms
 (Part Three)


Pss. 51, 130, 89: Repentance, Appeal to the Lord’s Name and to His Covenant

The prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, among others, have time and time again uttered that exile had befallen Israel due primarily to her sins, more precisely, due to her apostasy. Isa. 1:4-9 says:
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward…
