Overview

Jonah trapped in the dark, slimy, acidic, putrid insides of the dag gadol - the great fish - where he spiritually wrestled with God; Abraham, dazed and confused, angry and shocked at God's command to sacrifice his only son; Joseph, beaten, abandoned by his family, and essentially discarded as trash only to become the second most powerful man in the most powerful nation on Earth. What do these Biblical accounts, and many others, possibly have to do with the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus?

This Messianic novel tells the story of two weary, heartbroken, and bewildered students of The Lord as they traveled from Jerusalem on their way towards Emmaus nearly two thousand years ago, following the unimaginable and horrific execution of their Lord and Master, the One Whom they thought to be the Messiah - the Savior of the world - a stranger appeared to them and began to explain to them how everything in the Scriptures, "Beginning from Moses and all the prophets" pointed to the Messiah, and to the events that they had witnessed during the past few days of their lives. However what this stranger actually said to them was not recorded in the Scriptures, but has remained a mystery through the ages, open to much speculation and interpretation.

In this book, the reader is transported back in time to walk along the road with the stranger and the two students of the Messiah, and eavesdrop on what that conversation may have been. As the stranger peels back the years and retells familiar Biblical accounts, yet bringing them to life in new and fascinating ways, the two students are amazed and slowly begin to grasp the significance of everything that had been right in front of them all the time. By the time their conversation is over, their hearts, minds, and eyes are opened to the whole truth, and they see not only the depth and beauty of God's plan, but there, right in front of them, their Risen Lord and Savior, Who had changed their lives forever.

Told in a Messianic Jewish style, this story attempts to be true to the historical and cultural "feel" of that day so many years ago in the hopes of presenting the reader with a new and fresh perspective that will enable them to also rediscover for the first time what has been right in front of their eyes all these years. It is the author's sincere hope and prayer that not only will the reader be entertained through these pages, but much more importantly, see the Scriptures, and subsequently our Lord, in a new light, and like those first two travelers, have their lives and faith walk changed in new and unimaginable ways.

To all who are eager to take that walk, come along and listen.
