To sign or not to sign a book…that is the question.

IMG_0961The months of February and March were exciting times for me as a published author. I was able to hold two private book signing parties for close friends in the humble atmosphere of my abode. It was a wonderful time of good wine, cheese, discussion, and celebration. I was able to extend many “thank you’s” to those who made it possible for the publication of my first historical/fiction novel, 70 A.D. A WAR OF THE JEWS.

The party included a brief synopsis of the history leading up to the First Jewish Revolt against Rome, an explanation of the Jewish and Roman worldIMG_1206 in the First Century, a description of the book, and a public reading of the prologue. Then, for those interested, I signed purchased copies and we all finished the celebration with some wonderful champagne. I am pleased to say that both parties had a warm, friendly, cherished group of people who took part in this important achievement in my life, and they were able to toast further books and future endeavours.

IMG_0973IMG_0974I thank you all for reading the posts on this website, for following the articles I write, for purchasing copies of my book, and for your steadfast encouragement and support you have shown me.

Cheers,

Peter J. Fast

Insights into archaeology in Susya

Findings in ancient synagogue in Susya

The following link is for an interesting video on discoveries in the ancient community of Susya located in southern Israel. These discoveries have unearthed a synagogue and remnants from the sect of Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah of Israel. Written upon the floor of the ancient synagogue in mosaic stones, is the Hebrew name, “Yeshua” which also means “salvation.” The findings raise interesting points and bring to life the reality that the early believers in Yeshua of Nazareth, were in fact Jews who were Torah observant, Sabbath-keeping, feast celebrating, son circumcising Jews. These Jews believed that Yeshua was the prophesied Messiah, and they followed Him, waiting for His return. This Messianic sect of Judaism, called first by names such as, “Nazarenes” or “The Way” were Jewish men and women who believed that the Anointed One (Greek- Kristos, Hebrew – Meshiach) was in fact the Saviour of the world and the promised Messiah of Israel. Later, the name “Christian” would become a widely accepted term that would designate followers of Yeshua. Enjoy the video.
