A Fish Recipe For Christmas Holiday Season

Updated on December 16, 2012

Introduction:

Whether your heritage is through a Christian tradition or not, consider a simple but special fish recipe for a holiday meal as an alternate to meat. You will of course have to rethink to other elements of the meal. But that's not a difficult task.

Yes, I like to bring to the attention that fishing does have an important heritage element to early Christianity. Ichthys is the ancient and classical Greek word for "fish."

In English it refers to a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish, used by Early Christians as a secret symbol (when it would have been dangerous in some circles to be identified as a Christian) .

In 2005, A mosaic featuring fish surrounded by geometric patterns decorates the floor of what archaeologists said could be the oldest Christian church in Israel. The ruins of the church, which was likely built in the third or fourth century A.D., were recently discovered on the grounds of Megiddo Prison in northern Israel.

"What's clear is that it's the oldest archaeological remains of a church in Israel, maybe even in the entire region," Yotam Tepper, the excavation's head archaeologist, told the Associated Press.
