About the Book
After generations of waiting, the Messiah has come at last. And not a day too soon. All his life, Malon Ben-Tyrus has been stifled beneath Roman laws and religious traditions, and he longs to be free. The oppression of the Romans worsens every day, and the religious system led by the Scribes and Pharisees has grown corrupt.
Malon believes his life calling is to become a disciple of the Messiah and help free Israel from bondage. When Jesus heads to Jerusalem for the Passover feast, Malon knows this will be a historic event. Jesus will enter the city as the Son of David and take His place as the Messiah of Israel. He longs to follow Jesus to Jerusalem, but his family won’t allow him to go.
When at last his family consents, Malon arrives in Jerusalem only to discover that he is too late. The man he thought to be the Messiah has
been crucified,and Barabbas—his greatest enemy—has been set free.
Appalled by the cowardice of Jesus’ disciples, Malon returns home seething with frustration and despair. Everything he believed he was destined to become died with Jesus. Was he wrong about his destiny?
My Two Cents
This was such a good book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Malon’s journey from start to finish. Malon’s love for his family was something that touched my heart as I read this. I found myself cheering for Malon on several occasions. It was inspiring to read about Malon’s struggle with this faith and how he handled that. Amber did a great job writing this book. I would highly recommend this book to everyone!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! This book was such a joy to read!
