Over two thousand years ago, a man named Jesus of Nazareth lived, preached about love and forgiveness to his friends and followers, ultimately was crucified on a cross, died, and rose on the third day. It is a story that has been told and retold for millennia. But what do we know about what was happening in the shadows of Christ's cross?
In the Shadow of His Cross is a fictional story of political intrigue, love, and revenge. Titus is a centurion of the Roman army assigned to maintain peace and order in one of the furthest outreaches of the Roman Empire. There, he navigates the dangerous political waters in Jerusalem, following his orders while also using the power plays between Pontius Pilate, the governor of the Roman province of Judea, and Caiaphas, the high priest of the great temple of Jerusalem, to his ultimate advantage.
In the shadows, we also meet Dysmas. Dysmas is a man no different from many of us. He is a devoted husband and father, doing his best to raise his two young children in difficult political times. He is a hardworking craftsman and a loyal neighbor. But something happens to change him, to seal his destiny to be crucified alongside Jesus of Nazareth. Is forgiveness and redemption possible?
