When Jesus Wept - CONTEST!

 When Jesus Wept
Bodie and Brock Thoene

This is an incredibly powerful book that follows the life of an ordinary man, Lazarus, into the heart of God's extraordinary plan.  The Thoene's have outdone themselves with this tribute to Jesus Christ and his ministry. The setting and historical facts are impeccable, and the story line takes you right to the heart of this dear friend of our Lord. With Biblical accuracy, they have given life to those surrounding one of the most amazing miracles in the New Testament.

With a passion for helping others become self sustaining, Lazarus manages one of the finer vineyards in Israel. The story is told as if you are sitting at his feet while he chases grasshoppers from his vines, works tirelessly to save young boys from a terrible plague, and learns the true meaning of love as he leads his household in following the Messiah.

I have always loved the historical novels written by Bodie and Brock Thoene, and this one has quickly moved to the top of the list of my favorites. I am anxious to see what they do with the rest of the Jerusalem Chronicles series.

Book 1 in the Thoene's new Jerusalem Chronicles.
 Lazarus occupies a surprising position in the Gospel accounts. Widely known as the man Jesus raised from the dead, his story is actually much broader and richer than that. Living as he did at Bethany, near Jerusalem, Lazarus was uniquely placed to witness the swirl of events around Jesus. When Jesus Wept, the first novel in The Jerusalem Chronicles series by bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene, unfolds the turbulent times in Judea during Jesus' ministry, centering on the friendship between Jesus and Lazarus. With rich insights from vineyard owners and vine dressers, the Thoenes explore the metaphor of Jesus as the True Vine, harvesting the ancient secrets found in the Old Testament. Weaving the life of Lazarus, who owned a vineyard, into the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ will help you understand it is the hand of Love Divine that holds the knife, that cuts and breaks with such tender and loving touch, and that we who have born some fruit, after the pruning, can bear much more.
