AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jude tells the story of his cousin Jeshua and his family. With Jude, readers will find themselves drawn to Jeshua and caught up in the mystery that surrounds him—about his birth, about his “real” father, and about his future. Like Jude, readers will gradually begin to understand something of Jeshua’s secret.

'“Me and Jeshua” is the story of Jesus’ boyhood. It is attractive and compelling, a robust story full of insight, humor, and vigor. Yet it remains wholly true to what we know of Jesus and his times.'
