About the Book

At the trial of Jesus, one man spoke in his defense.

Nicodemus is destined to be a great scholar of Jewish law from a young age. Despite being betrothed to a girl who insists on putting love before the law, he becomes a respected Pharisee. When his wife becomes terminally ill, Nicodemus seeks out Jesus, a radical teacher rumored to heal the sick. They meet in secret because Jesus is viewed as a threat to the Pharisees and to the volatile relationship between the Jews and their brutal Roman rulers. After meeting Jesus in person, Nicodemus believes Jesus could be the long-awaited Messiah who will save the Jews from their oppressors. As factions in Jerusalem conspire to have Jesus killed, will Nicodemus be able to stop them?

Other people from the Bible you will meet in Nicodemus:

• Zacchaeus, the in-law no one wants to invite to family functions

• Simeon, who was promised he would not die before he saw the Messiah

• Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect who did not want Jesus’s blood on his hands

Enter the world of the Jerusalem elite and experience the story from a perspective that has never been told before.
