Item Description...
There has always been in Christianity an interest in the unknown details of Christ's life and the people who were close to him. This novel provides a realistic view into the lives of those close to the Twelve who surely lived, but of whom we know next to nothing. Jewish practice of the time of Christ holds that most of the Twelve were probably married and had families. John, son of Zebedee, tradition holds, was not. Scripture points out that the wives of the Twelve most likely accompanied and lived with them throughout their lives. Paul, in1 Corinthians 9:5 writes: "Do we not have the right to take along a Christian wife, as do the rest of the apostles, and the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?" In this work of fiction, the author has tried to imagine a timeline that flows unobtrusively throughout. The focus in the first portion of the book is on the apostles, their children, spouses, and relatives, while keeping the main character, Jesus of Nazareth, at the center of the collection of stories. The latter parts of the book concern the interaction of the families with the events unfolding in the lives of the followers of the Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A fascinating book  Jul 1, 2004
The author cites the New Testament as evidence that most of the apostles were married, and concludes that it is logical to assume that they had children. In the first chapters, the families . . . including spouses and children of the Twelve. . . are introduced. The cure of Simon Peter's mother-in-law and the reaction of Peter's wife to the prospect of her husband leaving her and their son are typical stories of interest. Matthew, the tax collector, is portrayed as having married a divorced woman with grown children. She eventually leaves him after his call, but her children develop relationships with other apostles' children. Judas from Karioth (Iscariot) has a son, Pollio, who eventually winds up in the Roman army. He is the soldier, who later in the book, thrusts the spear into the side of Christ. Bartholomew, one of the Twelve, and his wife are childless. The wife begs Jesus for a child. He promises that the couple will have a child in a week. How this is accomplished creates interest, because intervening chapters keep the reader wondering. It is hard to separate the stories the author weaves in with the gospel stories, particularly that of John, and the book has several surprises that keep the reader curious to the end. The author has done his research well mixing gospel stories with fictional events. A fascinating book.
