About this title
It takes place in the year 95 CE AD at the home of Flavia Sabena a cousin to Emperor Domitian on the last night of the Festival of Saturnalia The hostess has invited eminent Jewish Roman historian Flavius Josephus as guest of honor to give readings from his works while they wait up all night in their annual solar vigil celebrating the Midwinter Solstice Among the guests are P Cornelius Tacitus the leading voice among Roman historians and Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus the biographer of the Caesars Opening with the Star and Scepter prophecy and a flashback to Isaiah the action shifts to Josephus who explains that what encouraged the zealot bandits who fomented this war was an ambiguous oracle of a world ruler coming out of their country that was supported by their scriptural writings But as it turned out the oracle foretold the elevation of Vespasian who was proclaimed Roman Emperor while he was in Judea For more information you may visit www cgweissthegospel comAbout the Author:
I still have my day job as a law enforcement attorney in Chicago. In that capacity I supervise and conduct forensic investigations into securities fraud. Formerly, I was a Salesman-Trader in options and other derivative products in the institutional departments at Merrill Lynch (1975-1982) and Kidder Peabody (1982-1988). We traders held to the old adage, "It's better to be lucky than smart." But I ignored that sage advice and in 1988 earned a JD from DePaul College of Law in Chicago, and in 1995 earned an LLM in Financial Services Law at IIT Chicago Kent College of Law. - Won top scholar award in "Money Markets"! My only previous publication was a more cheerful piece titled 'A Review of the Historic Foundations of Broker-Dealer Liability for Breach of Fiduciary Duty' that was published in The Journal of Corporation Law Fall 1997, and has been cited in faraway places: Italy 2002/Japan 2004/The Netherlands 2006/Taiwan, China 2010.
