From the back cover:
Forced to flee war-torn Jerusalem in 70 A.D., Rebekah and her husband, Ethan, each take something of value: Rebekah, the cup of the Last Supper; Ethan, a copper scroll detailing the whereabouts of a vast Temple treasure. Ahead, separation and danger face them as each tries to survive. But it’s not only external forces that could keep them apart forever but internal ones as they struggle to discover where their true treasure lies.
My thoughts and giveaway:
I really enjoyed this book. It takes a different twist in what happened several years here on earth after Jesus returns to the Father. Very interesting.
The book opens with Rebekah and her sister preparing for the last supper (although they don’t know it’s the last supper). They don’t have enough cups for everyone so Rebekah has to share her precious cup. She only wants Jesus to drink out of it and she has to figure out where he might sit.
Years later she still has the cup, and yes, Jesus did drink out of it and she treasures this item.
As battle breaks out in Jerusalem Rebekah and her daughter leave their family behind and flee the city with the cup. When they find their new home Rebekah shares the cup with other believers and people begin to experience healing. Yet Rebekah’s own cries for healing in her daughter’s life seem to go unanswered.
Meanwhile, Ethan, Rebekah’s husband and sons are fighting for their lives and are given their own treasure to guard.
How will this family be reunited? And will the cup end up causing more trouble than good? Will the people make it an idol and worship the creation more than the Creator?
To find out you will have to read the book for yourself 🙂 There’s not a dull moment in this book, you’ll be flipping pages too see what happens next.
