Charles Edwards (1915 –1994), called "Emmanuel" by his followers, was a Jamaican Rastafari who founded the Bobo Shanti order in 1958 in Bull Bay in Jamaica,[1] and is held by that group to be a member of the holy Trinity, along with Haile Selassie I and Marcus Garvey. The "triune" positions of the Bobo Shanti trinity are as follows; Haile Selassie is regarded as the King of Kings a prophet sent by God, Garvey is perceived to be a prophet and Emmanuel, a High Priest and he is also believed to be Melchizedek of the Bible.[1]
