Marijuana & The Bible
This 2013 update is a re-examination of the essential doctrines and teachings of The Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church by H.H. Ras Iadonis Tafari presenting to The Society the EZCC's own firsthand documents as a preliminary exhibit in continuance of Our library of entries into the Cannabis Matrix series serving all the Mansions of Rastafari for perusal and consideration.
Marihuana, or Cannabis is found in the Hebrew Bible. It was used much in the same way, spiritually as the Rastafari Nyabinghi, private communion and praise-worship. In Exodus 30:23 that God commands Moses to make a holy anointing oil of myrrh, sweet cinnamon, Kaneh Bosm, and Kassia. The earliest Greek translations of the old testament "Kan" was rendered as "reed", leading to such erroneous English translations as "sweet Calamus" (Exodus 30:23), sweet cane (Isaiah 43:24; Jeremiah 6:20) and "Calamus" (Ezekiel 27:19; Song of Songs 4:14).
