The Queen of Sheba
by: Miriam Robinson
I knew that the Queen of Sheba's name was Makeda, because there is a resturant downtown Portsmouth named Makeda's. Nice resturaunt that serves some great food with live entertainment (I blazed the mic there a couple of times. I need to go back soon). They're Rasta's and on their menue they tell of her story. But back to the book; I learned that Makeda's mother was Sami, a Cushite from the leniage of Noah, Ham, Cush, and Nimrod. I learned how they kept their libraries. They read from papyrus rolls in urns, animal and goat skins, wood, clay paintings, and stone carvings that went back nine to ten millenia. Through a merchant seaman Tamrin the meeting of Makeda and King Solomon came to pass. They had a son named Menelik who became the first Emporer of Ethiopia. Her book was written to inspire women to the understanding of their importance in the world today. Not only that, it's a great source of historical facts. She (Ms. Miriam) digs deep in this book. She has many facts about this legendary woman. We've had several conversations about her and many other figures as well. I would go deep into the book but I don't want to make this too long of a post.
Just give some general information on what you learned, lets make a few comments and move along. To read about the Queen of Sheba's meeting with King Solomon read 1 Kings 10:1-13.
Lets make this an edutaining thread.
