by W. R. Sander

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The life of Christ, as seen through the eyes of the children that witnessed it.
tal•mid, pl. (tal•mid•im); An indentured apprentice-student of a Rabbi; a student studying under discipline— hence "disciple" rather than merely "student." Set in the first century, three longtime friends find themselves on opposing sides when a mysterious stranger comes to their hometown of K'far-Nachum and sets in motion events that will change the world. John, a twelve year-old who has a gift to memorize Scripture quickly, comes to the attention of the local priests, and together they deal with the stranger, a man called Yochanan the Immerser, who is baptizing townspeople in the local river in defiance of the established religious order. Just when they successfully silence this “prophet,” another even more formidable opponent from Natzeret comes to town, and takes John and his friends from their small town to Herod's Palace, Yerushalayim and finally to a small hill called Gulgota.
