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.
