THere is a HUGE difference between Original KRST-ianity and western christian LITERALIST, who took great metaphoric, metaphysical Teachings of the Inner Mysteries into a poor immitation (if not blasphemy) which has bamboozled, miseducated and mislead the world in order to politically control nations, creating colonialism, slavery, etc...all in the name of "christianity"...
The legacy of scriptural literature by early Nubians is not well known to many who preach and profess to practice Christianity. If anything, the crucial evidence is suppressed by the powers that be, hidden away in the vaults of numerous academic and religious libraries / museums across Europe (East & West).
Nevertheless these priceless documents provide distinct proof of the invaluable contributions made by Nubian Christians over the centuries. These works have provided the basis for the way of life of the faithful from the earliest times unto present day. It is unfortunate that not enough is being done currently to promote this knowledge by way of research and dissemination.

BOOK OF THE SAINTS OF ETHIOPIA CHURCH
This unique work of over five large volumes contains the histories of Angels and Archangels and their relationship to humanity. It is an impressive collection of accurate narration of lives led by the Patriarchs, Prophets, Apostles, archbishops, Bishops, Anchorites, Coenobites in addition to the lesser known and fabled Ascetics who roamed the deserts of Egypt,Sudan, Libya, and Ethiopia. These records were translated into Ethiopic (GE’EZ ) from the Arabic in which it was preserved. The Arabic versions were made from the Coptic work: LIVES OF THE SAINTS. Examples of this masterpiece are available in Latin, Greek, and Syriac.
Most of the saints recorded were martyrs. It is also worthy to note that the compilers of these records, had intimate knowledge of the monastic lifestyles led by many in the Thebaid, Aswan and Lower Egypt. This book of saints can be rightly referred to as 'The Book of Martyrs’. The authors were Bishops Abba Mikael and A'bba John who had many dedicated research assistants in the persons of several priests.
The MASHAFA SENKESAR is dated to the early Tenth Century of the Christian Era. It is a daily record, according to the Ethiopian Calendar of the Martyrs with an in-depth analysis of their contributions. Examples of the conflicts of Racism and the Monotheistic concept versus the Trinity are highlighted. This is another valuable resource, deserving of more exposure.
BANDLET OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
The most fascinating collection of sacred texts is without doubt the‘BANDLET OF RIGHTEOUSNESS’. Among the contents is the awe-inspiring 'SCROLLS OF LIFE' (MASHAFA HAYWAT ) in Ethiopic and the 'MYSTICAL NAMES OF THE PERSONS OF THE TRINITY’ ( TERGUAME FIDAL ) in Amharic.
European Archaeologists in their disturbance of sites of antiquity in Ethiopia and Sudan discovered numerous strips of parchment. Some of these strips were wrapped around the bodies of the deceased. These were confiscated under the guise of research and preservation by these plunderers.
It is an established fact that early burials in Nuballa were originally made in coffins made of reed. Bandages of parchments were used to wrap the dead as part of an ancient tradition linked to the belief that they will assist the wearer to come forth on the day of Judgement.
Parchments were also used as amulets. Upon which were inscribed spells, mystical symbols, crosses and figurines to ward off disease and sickness in men and children. It was used by women as protection, especially for miscarriages/abortions caused by evil spirits and ensure safe delivery.
Those accused for the illegal removal/theft of these sacred items are now also accountable for mis-guidance. They even erroneously suggested that the stolen loot of parchments, now located in many inaccessible vaults of several libraries, museums, and universities constitute the famed 'LAFAFA SEDEK’.
However these hold very little in common with the authentic ‘Scroll of Life’, which has the claim of being written by the hands of the Creator. It was conceived to protect the deceased from mutilation in the grave and the awful fire in Hell. This scroll serves as a key to attain everlasting life in paradise.
This fact links it directly with the 'PERT EM HRU’. This is also known as the ‘Egyptian Book of the Dead’ of which the best preserved copy is the ‘PAPYRUS OF ANI’ and dates to the Eighteenth Dynasty of Kushite regents ( 1575 B.C.E.)in TA MERI. While other
copies date from as early as the Fifth Dynasty.
The ancestors of the Christians of Sudan and Ethiopia were the ones who established an ancient culture which eventually exported civilization to the north (i.e. TAMERI/ KMT ) since 3500 B.C.E. This was done under the leadership of a regent known only by the name ‘SCORPION’.
Throughout succeeding dynasties of regents, the worship of Deities such as OSIRIS, ISIS , Horus ( representing DEATH, Motherhood and the Resurrection) and THEHUTI ( aka THOTH: the author of spells & prayers) were established. For it is common knowledge that Greek scholars studied the HERMITICA: Teachings of the deity THOTH. Clearly this indicates an irrefutable connection to the concepts adhered to by Christianity.
The Egyptian Book of the Dead also promoted the belief that it's spells would preserve the dead, procuring for their souls everlasting life, complete with comfort and happiness in the afterlife.
Many of the latter day construction of pyramids and temples after the Twenty Fifth Dynasty were in Meroe, Napata and Semna in Sudan. The walls of these monuments like their counterparts in Egypt, are adorned with reliefs of vignettes from the 'Saite Recession' of the 'Papyrus of Ani'.
It is also recorded that a king of the Axum empire imported to his region a black stone from Kush. This relic was found in 1771 C.E.. Upon which was inscribed an illustration of the Nubian deity HERU (HORUS) on one side and the other with magical spells in Kushite Hieroglyphs.
The religion of Christianity from its origin adopted many of the same ancient concepts of Kush. AUSAR ( OSIRIS ) represents Jesus, with AUSET ( ISIS )as his mother and Horus as the reincarnation/ resurrection. The Osiris legend has many inferences that have been inadvertently repeated in the Bible. For example the thirteen pieces into which Osiris was cut and the thirteen pieces of silver in the episode of Jesus' persecution.
The name ‘BANDLET OF RIGHTEOUSNESS’ was derived from the name ‘LAFAFA SEDEK’
SEDEK:TRUTH/ JUSTICE / RIGHTEOUSNESS
LAFAFA: SHROUD / WRAPPING / TO ENVELOPE / TO TIE
The word SEDEK survives in the Arabic language as SAADIQ, with the same meaning. While in the era of Ta-Nuhusi and TAMERI the same meaning was ascribed to the prominent female deity of the regents known as - MA’AT.
The LAFAFA SEDEK has its origin in the suggestion that JESUS the Christ appeared to his mother MARYAM and conducted her on a tour through HEAVEN and HELL. The seal of Solomon is inscribed all over the document. This symbol was reported to have been bestowed as a gift to Makeda (Queen of Sheba) who passed iton to her son Menyelek.
The words- ‘It guideth to Righteousness’ is written after every spell.
