Young people across America are rediscovering G.A. Henty, the 19th century literary genius whose historical adventures inspire boys to honesty, courage, diligence, and duty. Writing froma Christian perspective, Henty weaves the adventures of a fictional boy hero together with real life events. His stories are as accurate as they are exciting, so children get important lessons in history which they remember long afterward. Just as important, these lessons come without the immoral undertones of modern novels. For the Temple descends into the turmoil that ended in the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus in A.D. 70. John, a 15 year old Galilean, fears that the Jewish revolt against Rome could bring disaster on his people, and the Temple.. Then, his bravery in a strom attracts the attention of the governor, Josephus. Suddenly, he finds himself in the forefront of events. After escaping from the massacre at Jotapatain A.D. 67, John, with his loyal band, becomes a hero to the Jews and a scourge to the Romans. He disrupts Roman work parties, showers arrows and boulders onto troops, burns Roman camps, rescues his betrothed from slavery, even fights Titus himself in hand to hand comabat. In the final defense of the Temple, John is delivered yet again, only to be enslaved. But his slavery leads him to Caesar's court and finally home, not just to Galilee, but to that Galilean preacher his father had recognized as a prophet forty years before. Includes a Build Your Vocabulary Glossary of 460 words. Each word is cross referenced to its page number so children can easily go back and see how it is used in the story.
This tale follows the adventures of John of Gamala during the years of Roman occupation, political infighting, and lawlessness that resulted in the destruction of the Temple in AD 70. It puts the reader at the heart of the conflict between Rome and the greedy political groups and robber bands of Palestine. Although fighting a losing struggle, John keeps his integrity and honor intact, even overcoming slavery and eventually becoming a procurator after the struggle.
