5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Novel from Amazing Writers 21 Jan 2003
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Taking a break from the 1948 storyline of the rest of the series, this book tells the story of two people during the first century. Miryam is a lonely widow and Marcus is her centurion lover. Because of her relationship with Marcus, Miryam has been outcast from her family and community. Slowly, she is sinking into depression. Marcus, meanwhile, must struggle with keeping the peace in this foreign land while avoiding his nemesis Vara. From Capernaum and Nazareth to Caesarea Maritima and Jerusalem, the Thoenes weave a story full of political intrigue and personal struggle. In the midst of this, our characters come in contact with the preacher Yeshua of Nazareth. Will Miryam and Marcus let Him help them, or are they truly beyond hope?
When I first learned this book would take a break from the 1948 storyline, I was disappointed. But I decided to give the book a far reading. I'm glad I did. The Thoenes have proven once again what wonderful storytellers they are. This novel combines several Biblical stories with the fiction for a powerful tale of grace and mercy. I was moved to tears several times while reading.
My only disappointment was that the story ended so soon. While I hope the next novel continues with Moshe, Rachel, David, Ellie, Alfie, and the others, I would love to see a stand-alone novel about these characters. There is certainly room for more.
I am curious to see if they will work this story into the overall storyline somehow, or if the prologue and epilogue will be the only connection with the rest of the series.
I cannot recommend this novel highly enough. Their storytelling will enthrall their fans, and new fans will quickly be won over. It is my favorite of their books to date. Buy it and read it today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerusalem Scrolls 16 July 2011
Format:Paperback
This was a gripping read. I was unable to put it down and felt I'd actually participated in the action. The historical charactors were brought to life in a memorable way and Jesus was treated in a sensitive and moving way. This is a book that I shall not forget easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensitive and Stylish! 6 Mar 2002
By Eric Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Forget for a moment this is the fourth book in a series. Forget you've been following characters whose lives are enmeshed in the drama of mid-1948 and the struggle for Israeli independence. For 250 pages, imagine you are discovering the incredible back-story to this modern conflict in Jerusalem.
The Thoenes break new ground here, jumping back two millenia to unravel the story of Mary (Miryam) Magdalene and her connections to the life of Jesus (Yeshua). I've admired the Thoenes ability to recreate the era of the 1930's and 40's, but to see them jump to 30 A.D...Wow! The transition is seamless. I was quickly transported to the troubled times and life of young Miryam and her centurion lover. I found myself caught up in the story and surprised at the ease with which the authors slipped fiction into the historical framework. In these pages, the Thoenes do wonders, making the lives and relationships of those represented in the Gospels come alive. They breathe fresh perspective into this oft-told tale and make it wholly believable and accessible for a modern reader.
From what I understand, the next book or two in The Jerusalem Legacy will continue the biblical back-story. (This book ends at the point of Jesus meeting with the woman caught in adultery.) Although I wish the Thoenes had finished their present series and made the story of these scrolls into its own entity, I'll certainly look forward to the continuation...of both. While remaining true to the known facts and to the spirit of the Bible, the Thoenes delve into the hearts and minds of those who later became known in the Scriptures. I'll never see Mary or the centurion or Caiaphas the same. Through "The Jerusalem Scrolls" they've become living, breathing people. With style and great sensitivity, this book shows once again why the Thoenes are one of the best writing teams going.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great change of pace 14 Feb 2002
By Kathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
With the fourth book of their Legacy series, the Thoene's switch gears (and centuries), taking their readers from 1948 Israel back to Jesus's ministry on earth. I found myself instantly caught up in the story of Miryam and Marcus, and thoroughly enjoyed the weaving of gospel stories within the fabric of a well written novel.I'm a huge fan of their work, and to me each book is better than the last. Definitely a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get a new perspective of Jesus and Mary Magdalene 12 April 2002
By Sue Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
You really need to read this book to understand what tremendous writers the Thoneses are. They tell the story of Mary Magdalene, her pain and transformation, the way it might have been. It is amazing how many stories and people of the New Testament are
expertly woven into this story which keeps you facinated as you catch onto who you are actually reading about. (The names of people are slightly changed and you catch onto who it is as you go.)It is fun; and when my husband and I (we are reading this together) read about Jesus being interuppted by his mother and brothers, we were so delighted with their take on it and how graciously they portray the Lord. If you know the Bible well, you will get more out of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an incredible way to introduce Jesus... 1 April 2004
By Lisa Lundin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was my first introduction to the Thoenes - in the middle of a series - but it turned out to be a great place to start! This has been an incredible book!! The Thoene's are magnificent writers who weave a story with many memorable characters that leave you wanting for more. I am amazed at how they were able to include so many characters without my getting confused with all the information they supplied me with. You are first introduced with the situation being Jerusalem in 1948. Then you are taken back in time to the days of Jesus. However, you are not introduced to him in the traditional sense. You are given a behind the scenes look at people who witnessed his acts, a Roman soldier named Marcus and a Jewish woman named Miryam. It is their story that weaves throughout the book along with others. Don't hesistate to buy this book. It is worth the investment!
