Throughout the course of these events, Maximus comes to question all he has been taught to believe.
Lifted by his love for a freed slave, Maximus follows her to Capernaum where he learns of the gospel of Jesus Christ. After witnessing the healing of a fellow centurion's servant, Maximus's hunger for truth grows and his questions about the rabbi increase. He knows that if anyone can tell him more about the Messiah, the woman he loves can. On the shore of Galilee, she shares her testimony of the Messiah, and for Maximus, just being in her presence gives him a glimpse of heaven.
Over the course of a single day, he receives answers to questions that have haunted him for years. But when certain events come to light that reopen old wounds, he wonders if he will ever truly have peace.
