TheMoreThe Messiah’s Spy is a unique story about Christmas for teens and adults who want to read something really different about the birth of Christ.The book blends the story of the birth of Christ with what life was like in Judea under Herod’s rule.

The result is a book that is immensely entertaining, yet incorporates Christian values without being preachy.Synopsis: Fourteen-year-old Joseph (who just might be a young Joseph of Arimathea) runs away to avoid punishment by his father, (an important general in Herod’s army) for getting into a brawl with some soldiers when he is caught cheating at dice.

He is tracked down by a mysterious Roman officer and is surprised to find out he is being taken to Herod’s palace where something unusual is being planned for him.En route to Jerusalem, Joseph and the Roman officer are attacked by bandits, and Joseph falls off his horse and blacks out.

He wakes up to find himself in the care of a family from Nazareth who are on their way to Bethlehem. The family makes an impression on him that he will never forget.When Joseph recovers from his injuries, he is taken by the Roman officer to Herod’s palace where he learns that he will enter training to be a foot soldier in Herod’s army as punishment for his transgressions.

Joseph discovers that Herod’s palace is in turmoil. King Herod is enraged over the discovery of a conspiracy in his family to kill him, so he orders his three sons, Archelaus, Antipas and Paul, to undergo military training with Joseph. Joseph flourishes under the grueling training regimen, but Herod’s sons do not, and Joseph quickly finds out that Herod’s son, Archelaus, is plotting to kill him.But on one cold night, Joseph witnesses the miraculous events on the night that Christ was born, and his life is changed forever when he is taken before Herod to explain what he saw in Bethlehem.Hear what the characters in The Messiah’s Spy have to say about young Joseph:“He risked his life to save us!”(Mary of Nazareth.)“If I ever get my hands on that little brat, I’ll wring his neck!”(Domitius, Centurion in Herod’s army at the Masada, after he recovered from his injuries.)“Everything unfortunate that happened to that boy was the result of some stupid decision he made.

And he seems to have a special talent for making stupid decisions.”(Flavius, a high-ranking Roman officer on special assignment from Emperor Augustus.)“Everything bad that happened to me was because of that insufferable barbarian. I’ll hunt him down if it takes the rest of my life.”(Archelaus, son of King Herod.)“He has a talent all right―either for being a soldier or maybe a buffoon in a Greek comedy. The boy definitely kept us entertained while he was here.”(Varus, Roman soldier serving under Flavius.)“He smuggled a piece of bread to me right under the eyes of my guards.”(Antipater, oldest son of King Herod, being held prisoner in the Antonia fortress.)“I’ll say one thing about that boy.

He has courage. With him, no sneaking around behind your back. He’s is not afraid to speak his mind.”(King Herod.)“He was amazing! I’ve never seen anyone outrun an arrow before.”(Antipas, sixteen-year old son of King Herod.)“If his mother had not died when he was so young, things might have turned out differently―for both of us.”(General Jannaeus, father of Joseph and commander of the garrison at the Masada.)
