Would you like to walk alongside the Messiah in His early years, talk and listen to Him, and experience His gentle, simple humanity, divine power, and authority? Award-winning mystery author Thomas J. Nichols tells one of the greatest mysteries of all time, the private life of Jesus, the Messiah. Told through the eyes of Jesus' lifelong friend, Nur, Nichols' gifted storytelling brings this unique perspective of Jesus to life, providing a rare insight into His inner thoughts and emotions, manifesting His divine power in a miracle on the mountaintop near Capernaum. As Jesus and Nur journey through the towns and villages of the mid-east and across the sea to Ephesus, the reader will experience a personal bond with His earthly years. Nur bears witness to Jesus' service to humanity: the rich and the poor, Jews and Gentiles, freemen and slaves, believers and nonbelievers, comforting them through the hardships and joys of everyday life. Join Nur standing with Jesus' mother, Mary, at the foot of the cross on Golgotha.
