When the sword of Herod maimed Safiya and slew her son, Josu, another son lay in her womb.
Meet Malchus ben-Gershom, chief servant of Caiaphas, the high priest. Even his own wife doesn't know his secret-- the secret he must hide from Herod at all costs. His anger with God makes him good at his job: getting rid of false messiahs.
First assignment: capture Barabbas.
When a new teacher surfaces, Malchus is dispatched to neutralize this latest threat. Encounters with the Nazarene leave him puzzled. How could this man so change his wife, Alona?
At last a disciple betrays Jesus' secret resting place, and Malchus marches the temple guard out for the arrest. But the sudden flash of a sword in the torchlight leaves him clutching his bloody head with one hand and preparing to murder a Galilean fisherman with the other. Then something happens that Malchus cannot explain.
Now he is desperate to free the One he helped to capture.
With a cast of 70 vibrant characters, Noni Beth Gibbs offers us a new look at the Man on the middle cross--- through the eyes of His enemies.
