When Philip meets the Ethiopian eunuch on the road to Gaza, we are told that this mysterious man is the state treasurer to Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. But this strange description is inaccurate and the Candace, was never an Ethiopian queen. So who was she, and what kingdom did she rule over? In this teaching, Aliyah unpacks the importance of Candace, and her kingdom, a kingdom that ruled Egypt, and featured as a world player on the stage of history for thousands of years. It’s a kingdom South of Egypt, and it’s history is rich with fierce warrior queens who fought against Rome, and immortalised their victories in temples and pyramids. This is a story from the pages of the Bible that tell of the history of Africa, and its female queens.
