Some sources refer to the Wider Canon, which is said to contain all of the Narrower Canon as well as additional New Testament books used by the early church: two Books of the Covenant, four Books of Sinodos, an Epistle of Peter to Clement — also known as “Ethiopic Clement,” and the Ethiopic Didascalia. These may or may not be closely related to works with similar titles that are well-known in the West.
The ‘Pseudo-Josephus,’ an eight-part Ethiopic version of the Jewish people’s history written by Joseph ben Gorion, is considered part of the larger corpus, though it would be considered an Old Testament work.
Where does self-esteem come from?
Loving and affectionate parents support and praise children. Parents build up their child’s belief that the world is a good place.
The child becomes an adult with people around them who support and love them. Their self-esteem comes from their interaction with their families and their environment.
Children who do not experience this will lack a sense of inner value and worthiness.
As children grow up – and experience hurt and pain – their self-esteem decreases. They lose self-worth and their fundamental feelings of worthiness.
Ethiopia Ortodox Tewahedo church Christians, like some other Eastern Christians, have historically followed dietary laws similar to Jewish Kashrut, especially when it comes to animal slaughter.
Pork is also forbidden, though Ethiopian cuisine, unlike Rabbinical Kashrut, combines dairy products with meat, making it much closer to Karaite and Islamic dietary rules. Women are not allowed to enter the church temple when they are menstruating, and they must cover their hair with a big scarf (or shash) while in church
