Padok, InI did explain Jesus's role in Rastafari.
"many ones in Rastafari hail Iyesus and then sight Haile Sellassie I as the return of, or new embodyment of the Christ. Some ones do not hail Iyesus at all. Some don't hail Haile Sellassie and still try to fit themselves into Rastafari. Some Rastafari hail Haile Sellassie I as the MOST HIGH. There is also Rastafari who have left the biblical interpretation all together because they found greater evidence and value in the teachings of Kemet."
What is unclear? Jesus doesn't have a one definition role in this movement or Christianity, at least according to the people in them, there is constantly despute.
I do not believe Jesus is God if thats what your asking. I believe that the original uncorrupted Yashua WHO WAS BORN IN A CAVE IN ETHIOPIA. He was not God. Messiah doesn't mean God, it doesn't mean dying on a cross, it doesn't mean savior. It means Annointed One, thats all. Malcolm X is a Messiah, Marcus Garvey is a Messiah, Imhotep is a Messiah....
Rastafari is concerned with Africa. Rastafari is concerned with Ethiopia. Before Constantine came into Northeast Africa, InI Ancient African Christian Forefathers, St. Augustine, Teurtillian told us that Christ was born in a cave in Ethiopia, but when the Beast came he changed it.
Why is it that Yashua the Krst, is the only guy in the NT that is speaking Aramaic-Amharic, an Ethiopian language? I'll leave that for ones to decide.
Also research Aries, the African Chruch father who was rejected by the popes and bishops at the council of Nicea.
