An extraordinary stone box was recently discovered in Jerusalem—the bone-box of “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” This is his story . . .It’s the year A.D. 57 and Jerusalem teeters on the brink of revolt against Rome. James, leader of the Jewish Christian community, has an enemy in high places. And two very strange friends . . . Rivka Meyers is a Messianic Jewish archaeologist from California, trapped in first-century Jerusalem by a physics experiment gone horribly wrong. Ari Kazan is her husband, an Israeli physicist slowly coming to grips with his Jewish heritage—and with a man named Jesus he was raised to hate.With no way back to their own century, Rivka and Ari seek their niche in this doomed city of God. Ari applies his knowledge of physics to become an engineer, a man of honor. Rivka feels increasingly isolated in a patriarchal culture that treats women like children. She knows what’s coming—siege, famine, fire. At first, her warnings earn her grudging respect as a “seer woman.” But when one of her predictions misses, the city scorns her as a false prophet. Rivka knows that an illegal trial and execution awaits James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus. Can she prevent this disaster? Will James believe her “premonition”? Or is Ari right that Rivka’s meddling in history will only . . . make matters worse?
