The story explores the beginnings of Christianity in the context of Eastern Oriental tradition in general and the contribution of Africa to world Christology. In the framework of Eastern Oriental tradition, the heritage of Balthazar (one of the three wise kings of the magi) is a covenant with the Ethiopian Christian Church. Following his presentation of myrrh to the infant Jesus, Balthazar, Ethiopian King of the Magi, returned to his country and issued a Clarian Call to worship. Following the invasion of Ethiopia by Mussolini, the dictator and fascist ruler of Italy, H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie established an exile government in Great Britain. During this period, in New York City, the Ethiopian World Federation was established and membership flourished. A constitutional commission as well as a liturgical commission was established and the first Metropolitan Primate was elevated in the name of Arch Bishop Abuna Mikael, officially seeding the Ethiopian Orthodox Coptic Church of North and South America. In 1956 H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie visited the United States and resented an Ethiopian cross to the pastor of Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, Rev. Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Congressman of the United States.
