Monologue: The Ethiopian’s story

What an amazing coincidence! I still find it hard to explain – even after telling so many people the story. Some of them found it almost impossible to believe that it happened.
But I know it did.

How would you have felt if it had happened to you?

Let me tell you about it from the beginning.

My life has turned out rather well. Admittedly, I’ve had to work hard to get to where I am now, but it’s been worth every bit of the effort. I come from Ethiopia and I started my life as a slave, but I’m now one of the Queen’s most trusted ministers. My responsibilities are many and various, but basically I am in charge of all of the finances of the Queen herself. I am a very valuable servant of Her Majesty. I ride in one of the royal chariots and I am given a great deal of freedom to pursue my own interests, as well as taking care of those of the Queen.

One of those interests is the subject of religion and particularly that of the Jews.
