Paul was born in Tarsus about 4 BCE. His father was a faithful Jew, a Roman, and a successful tent manufacturer. This book focuses on three families and their relationship with birth, love, travel, religion, and death. The first family is that of Omar and his wife, Ruth. They have four children: Aaron, their oldest son; his brother, Hezekiah; Yona, the only daughter; and Paul, the youngest child. The second family is Zacharias; his wife, Elizabeth; and son, John. The third family is that of Joseph and his wife, Mary. They have a large family. Jesus was their firstborn, then James, twins Salome and Thomas, Simon, and finally, Judah. My story reveals how these three families were involved in the formation and dissemination of the Christian religion. It is a story loosely based on the stories of the Bible. My intent is to entertain you and, hopefully, to stimulate your thought process about Bible stories by providing the human interactions concerning these three families.
