The traditional Epiphany festival, which honors Jesus Christ’s baptism in the Jordan River under the direction of John the Baptist, is known in Ge’ez as timkat. Epiphany (Aster’eyo in Ge’ez) refers to the manifestation of the Trinitarian God’s mystery, in which the Holy Spirit showed itself as a dove at the Jordan River during Jesus’ baptism and God the Father attested to Jesus’ sonship.
Timkat is a religious ritual that initiates a youngster into the Christian faith. The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, which may be as old as Christianity itself, is in charge of the annual Timkat celebration, which takes place on January 19. According to the Bible, the first baptism took place while an Ethiopian official was on an official visit to Jerusalem.
This view was different because it said that the incarnate Christ has one nature, but that nature is made up of two natures—divine and human—and keeps all the qualities of each, even though they are now one.
From the first half of the fourth century until 1959, when Pope Cyril VI of Alexandria, head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, gave it autocephaly and its own patriarch, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church was run by the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria.
