A Thoroughly Detailed Novel on the Life, Times, Events, and People Interacting with Jesus Christ
During King Herod’s rule, Zechariah, the aging Parush from the House of Abijah, has grown tired of the uncompromising dream that haunts him nightly with a message that he is the last of his family line. As he goes about his life with his wife, Elizabeth, Zechariah has no idea that his prayers have finally been heard—until an angel tells him his wife will conceive a son, Yehohanan, who will one day become a great man. Two months later, Zechariah undertakes his priestly duties in Yerushalayim as Elizabeth’s belly swells. Meanwhile Elizabeth’s cousin, Miriam, the teenage daughter of a prince from the House of David who will soon marry Prince Yosef, receives a message that she will also conceive a baby named Yehohshua, who will inherit King David’s throne. As the baby is born, a crowd gathers as it is proclaimed the boy is the promised seed: the true Mashi’ach, and Shiloh. As a baptizer and a prince fulfill their prophecies, a mystery remains. Is Shiloh really who he proclaims? In this compelling tale that explores religious doctrine and principles, a prince’s life hangs in the balance as those who doubt him make his life a living hell. “The author interposes a broad mix of history, fiction and the supernatural to create a portrait of epic proportions. … The story is noteworthy for its breadth of context … An ambitious novel.” —Kirkus Reviews
