Jesus Wept - Bodie & Brock Thoene

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

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.

My Thoughts:  

When Jesus Wept. The shortest and most poignant piece of scripture. In Bodie and Brock's latest historical fiction they speculate what may have happened between Jesus and Lazarus. Lazarus is a vinedresser and after he sees Jesus turn water into wine in Cana he is curious about this teacher from Galilee. Jesus and Lazarus talk among his vines and become friends, Jesus using the vines as an example of His Father being the vine dresser, pruning the branches so that there would be new growth. Lazarus understood that. 

Brock and Bodie have written a beautiful book that grabs your heart and doesn't let go.  I highly recommend this book!
