Litfuse Presents…

When Jesus Wept By Bodie and Brock Thoene

About When Jesus Wept
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 ON THIS BOOK
This was my first book by Bodie and Brock Thoene. The title captured my attention so I wanted to see what it was about. It took me a while to get into the story, and it just wasn’t as indepth as I wanted it to be. The story was during the time of Lazarus and his life on the earth, which was interesting. And it incuding John the Baptist and the time he baptized Jesus. It was interesting to read the imagination of Brock and Bodie about what it was like when Jesus walked on this earth. Some of the Biblical things they brought out was a bit different from what I have heard all of my life, so I will be checking into those things, just for my own peace of mind.
Overall, this is an interesting and enjoyable read. As with all Biblical fiction, while reading it, you need to realize that it is just that, fiction and though there are scripture and Biblical truths throughout the book, it is also the imagination of the writers. I encourage you to pick up a copy to read to form your own opinion. I think you will enjoy it ver much!
I received this book  from Thomas Nelson Publishers through Litfuse  for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
