    Rastafarianism is an Abrahamic religion, but the title of this article is slightly misleading in context, since St. Thomas here is a location.

    Jesus said: "A person was receiving guests. When he had prepared the dinner, he sent his slave to invite the guests.

    The slave went to the first and said to that one, 'My master invites you.' That one said, 'Some merchants owe me money; they are coming to me tonight. I must go and give instructions. Please excuse me from dinner.'

    The slave went to another and said to that one, 'My master has invited you.' That one said, 'I have bought a house, and I have been called away for a day. I shall have no time.'

    The slave went to another and said to that one, 'My master invites you.' That one said, 'My friend is to be married, and I am to arrange the banquet. I shall not be able to come. Please excuse me from dinner.'

    The slave went to another and said, 'My master invites you.' That one said, 'I have bought an estate, and I am going to collect the rent. I shall not be able to come. Please excuse me.'

    The slave returned and said to his master, 'Those whom you invited to dinner have asked to be excused.' The master said to his slave, 'Go out on the streets and bring back whomever you find to have dinner.'

    Buyers and merchants will not enter the places of my father."

    The disciples said to Jesus: “Tell us how we will end.”

    Jesus said: “Since you have discovered the beginning, why do you seek the end?

    For where the beginning is, there will be the end.

    Blessed is he who will stand at the beginning and shall know the end; he will not taste death.”
