Ethiopian Orthodox Bible
« on: December 18, 2009, 10:48:36 AM »
I wonder if the complete Ethiopian Orthodox Bible will ever be published in English. With Enoch and Jubilees included.

Doubt it.  The Church as I understand it makes a distinction between its longer and shorter canon, and it is printing its shorter one.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I hope so! Although I imagine that it would have to be in at least two volumes. I also hope that all the books of Church Tradition will eventually be published in English as well. Let's pray!

But the shorter one still has Enoch and Jubilees.
