​​​​​​​    The Way of Yeshua  is an exquisitely researched and beautifully written novel about

    destiny, human nature and purpose that is sure to appeal to people of all faiths and religious



    In ancient Galilee, a male child is born.  His name is Yeshua and within days after his birth,

   Herod marks him for death forcing Yeshua’s family to flee into exile in Egypt.  This is only

   the first of many journeys Yeshua takes during his life; and, sadly, the first of many times

    his life is threatened. Mystery and mythology surround every aspect of Yeshua including

    his conception, birth, life, and death.  Some people say he was conceived by a virgin mother

    and that he is the son of G-d, a great teacher of the Law, keeper of the faith, and leader of  

    his people. Others say he is a charlatan whose birth was illegitimate according to the Law. 

    Within the context of his personal challenges, Yeshua finds himself embroiled 
in the social,

    political, and religious conflicts of the time.  When the Romans begin denigrating his people,

    disrespecting their Law, and defiling their land, Yeshua’s mission becomes clear.  There

    will be no stopping this well-considered, fully human meticulous strategist until the

    prophecies  of Isaiah and Zechariah are fulfilled. And fulfill them he does, by paying

    with his own life.  Or does he? 

    What if Yeshua did not die on the cross?  What if  the death and resurrection 
of Yeshua

     is one of the greatest stories ever told, but it is untrue. 

    Yeshua’s true impact on the world is even greater than the stories we know.  

    And so, the story begins...
