A political drama from first century Palestine
Malcolm Down Publishing Ltd
OverviewDuring a tumultuous period in first-century Palestine, this is a story of four Passovers and an execution. The people groan under the oppressive control of an overbearing Roman empire, whose tax burden and food rationing have made outlaws of some, fanatical for a violent rebellion. The majority of the land is owned by the puppet kings that do Rome’s bidding, whilst a priestly class have their own corrupt means of levying further taxes. The people dream of freedom, clinging to the hope of a great leader, a Messiah, that will arise and set them free, as their prophets and their history have foretold.
