I have just finished reading Yeshua, The Missing Years of Jesus. It was one of the most enjoyable reads I have had this year. I congratulate you. The book is not only well written, but it is thought provoking. I particularly enjoyed the many historical references and the notes on Middle East philosophy.

...after reading excerpts (from his latest book) . . . not one copy of Yeshua was left in my store. What a lovely event for Queen Bee Books....

 Prologue (excerpt)

 The Morning of the First Day (part)

I'd missed him by a day. A single day. I'll never forgive myself. If it hadn't been for that stupid deal when my father couldn't bear to lose a damn rupee, I would have seen him again. There I was, riding like a maniac. All for nothing.

More than three years had passed since I last saw him. I missed him from the day that we parted company. In Egypt. He was the closest friend I ever had. As a matter of fact, considering the time I spend traveling, he was virtually my only friend. And now he's gone. Dead. They tell me the Romans executed him. Like a common criminal. Why ? Yeshûa wouldn't steal a crust of bread. He wouldn't hurt a fly. Not the Yeshûa I knew. Could it really be true?

They've directed me to this broken down hovel. A house, a shack really, on the back-streets of Jerusalem. Mud bricks and a straw roof. The headquarters of his followers. I just don't believe it. I can't. He was He wouldn't let them Yeshûa where are you Yeshûa?

Don't listen to me. I am in a state of shock. Wouldn't you be? You would, had you known him as I did. If you knew him at all. Even if you had just met him.

 Chapter 2 (excerpt)

 The Desert
I forget where or when the following event took place, but it couldn't have been more than a few weeks, months at most, after we first left Jerusalem. We followed the main road to Shechem, then took the right fork, bearing northeast towards Scythopolis, and finally crossed Jordan just south of Lake Chinnereth to take the mountain road to Damascus. It wasn't the best road, but my father deemed it the safest. There were too many riffraff in the lower, richer grounds, where bandits could hide in the thick bush that covered most of the ground. The desert was safer. It was here, in the vast expanse of rocks and sand that, for the first time, Yeshûa raised a tiny edge of the veil that obfuscated from me, and I should well imagine from the rest of the world, his most secret thoughts.
