In 4 BC, two babies were born beneath a brilliant star that shone down on the town of Bethlehem. The brilliance of the star was taken as a sign from God. Both were destined to survive the purge of Bethlehem. One child was Jesus of Nazareth, whose Jewish parents fled with their newborn son to Egypt in order to save his life. The second child was Marcus Titus. He was the son of a Jewish woman and Roman man. Knowing that their son faced certain death, they hid Marcus among some rocks on a hillside just beyond Bethlehem. There, he was found by Roman soldiers and sent to Rome to be raised as a Roman citizen. This is the story of two star-crossed lives. One life has been written about extensively, its history retold for multiple generations. The other life has remained a mystery except to a very few for an equal number of generations. Yet both are intimately connected to the Christian faith. Chosen by Jesus of Nazareth to write the history of his life and ministry, Marcus Titus wrote three gospels, two of which are contained in the New Testament. This is a story based upon fact, inspiration, and speculation about the one referred to in the New Testament as “the other disciple.” Within this story are lessons that provide the foundation for life.

This book tells us, in exquisite detail, about the amazing times when Jesus was teaching and healing in the Holy Land and about his shocking crucifixion, with tantalizing glimpses of what may have followed. This is not fiction; it is a real story that has never been told like this before. Jesus’s adopted young brother, Thomas, recounts the events of those days, including many of the actual words of Jesus. He helps us understand the enthusiasm and excitement that Jesus brought to the people then. His words are as relevant today as they were then. He understood the purpose of life, why we are here, where we are going, and what we should be doing to get there.

Sometimes the greatest gifts are the ones left to us. As a crowd of angry men spill out of a garden, dragging a preacher who has dared to challenge the established order – and the misery it has caused – a young man follows at a distance. But he is spotted by two other men, who run back and grab hold of him. Terrifed, the boy wriggles out of the linen cloth he is wearing and runs naked back into the darkness. Who was that boy and why was he there? The Thirteenth Disciple is the story of fourteen-year-old Daniel, who yearns to make a difference in the world and who unexpectedly comes face-to-face with Jesus of Nazareth. Astonished to be invited to travel the country with him and his disciples, Daniel's starry-eyed vision of the future soon evaporates when he becomes involved in the running battles with the authorities. But he is held together by Jesus's friendship, the wonder of his miracles and his determination to stand up for the ordinary people. And when he becomes aware of the shattering consequences if he stays faithful to his hero, Daniel races through the darkened streets of Jerusalem on the longest of fateful nights, knowing he must decide his own future before it is too late.

"History is a compilation of events that cannot happen." -- Anonymous Nellie Vaughn moves to Aspen from San Francisco in search of tranquility. Instead, she becomes the prisoner of whispered words she was never meant to hear. In the blink of an eye, she finds herself a hunted animal with no place on earth to hide. Her lover, a slow-talking Southerner, and her boss, a frail 74-year-old woman, are of no help. Nellie cannot shed her secret, just as a trial court jury cannot unring the bell of spoken words. Her charm, youth and stunning good looks, her gentle nature and belief in miracles, are her only attributes.

In Bethlehem Mary has identical twins: Jesus and Jesse. The boys grow up together, but their education and interests diverge. Whereas the upbringing of Jesus is centered on the synagogue, Jesse attends Roman schools and becomes devoted to the integration of the Hebrew nation into the Roman Empire. Accordingly, while Jesus becomes an itinerant preacher in Galilee and Judea, Jesse undertakes a voyage with a Roman friend, Marcellus, to Italy. There he works as a shipping clerk in the port city of Ostia and falls in love with Adriana, daughter of a wealthy local merchant. When the father learns of their affair, however, he demands that Jesse depart. The young mans decision to do so is clinched by the accidental death of Marcellus in a chariot race. Jesses return to Palestine is marred by a severe case of malaria, leaving him emaciated and enfeebled. His recovery is hastened by the loving ministrations of Mary Magdalene, with whom he establishes an intimate bond. Meanwhile, Jesse encounters his twin once more and becomes one of his followers, the thirteenth disciple. He is consequently present at the Last Supper, identified only as the one whom Jesus loved. Charged with being a radical dissident, Jesus is arrested, tried, and condemned to death under the regime of King Herod. The scene is thus set for the dramatic events of a crucifixion. Only, the executioners knew not what they were doing.

This is the groundbreaking novel that fills in so many puzzling passages and mysteries woven into the familiar scriptural stories of the Bible. Using the near- lost gospels of the earliest Judeo-Christian mystics recovered recent times, Peter Canova reconstructs Western spiritual history in a spellbinding novel of fall, transcendence, and redemption. Mary Magdalene's story in not just about the lost feminine voice of the early Church-her story is our story, the universal saga of humanity's origin, destiny, and purpose. It is the story of an explosive divine knowledge being silenced by opposing powers to prevent a shocking truth from transforming mankind with a new paradigm for existence. Magdalene escapes slavery and forced prostitution to become the primary disciple of Jesus and bear the secret, radical knowledge he taught to an elect few. Set against the clash of opposing empires and a backdrop of murder, espionage, and betrayal, Magdalene is pursued by a Roman assassin as she embarks on an odyssey across the ancient world. She seeks the key that will make her worthy to reveal the true message of the martyred Jesus before she too is silenced and her native Judea is destroyed in a rain of fire and blood.

THIS IS A LOVE STORY, the tale of a woman who dream of love and power and found more than she dreamed. It is a historical romance with mystical tones. In Magdala 17 A.D.: the young Jewish woman, Mary is entranced by a golden lover on a white horse -- the Roman Centurion Quintus Gallus. Sensuous, with powerful emotions, born with "second sight" (clairvoyance), she sees fragments of her future life. Seduced by Quintus, she is later captured by Arabs and escapes to Caesarea, only to be thrown into a life of prostitution. She becomes a courtesan in Caesarea, and for a time the mistress of Pontius Pilate. But her painful love for Quintus leads to hashish and finally insanity; she is "possessed" by a devil, a dark voice in her mind. Mad on the streets, and tormented by the "devil", she faces stoning, but is rescued by a strange Galilean who has marvelous powers of healing: Jesus of Nazareth. It is Jesus who reveals the real mysteries of Love to Mary and what teacher her to "walk the rainbow" to spiritual individuation. Pontius Pilate, the centurion Quintus Gallus, a disciple named Judas, the Devil himself, and the Nazarene prophet, Jesus are the alchemical agents that transform a prostitute into a saint --the legendary woman of the Bible who anointed the Master's feet and dried them with her hair. This is a novel of people, adventure and passion. It is written for every woman who "loved and lost," but did not understand the significance of what happened. This book is also a Jungian alchemical parable of transmutation and it has much meaning for those interested in mystical Christianity, yoga, holistic health, ESP, and mythology of the Joseph Campbellian variety. Mary is a Biblical hero, but she is also the eternally questing hero of the mythic round; and if Jesus is the Biblical Christ, He is also that Magus figure who leads men to a higher state of consciousness. This is the story of a woman of passion who achieved the gate of heaven. For every true lover ... and especially RK.

The New York Times bestselling author of Buddha and Jesus weaves together historical narrative, mystery, exciting adventure, and intrigue in this masterfully told novel that reveals surprising discoveries about the unknown last disciple of Christ, and a new understanding of who Jesus was in his final days. When a solid gold reliquary missing from a church in Belgium suddenly resurfaces in America, a young newspaperman begins to investigate the story. At first, it seems like just another case of a treasure stolen during World War II that has resurfaced. But it soon becomes apparent that much more is at stake. Hidden within the medieval reliquary is a gold box that holds a sacred relic—a single finger bone—from an anonymous saint. Why would the remains of someone unknown to the Church be considered holy? The search for answers leads to a shocking discovery—a dangerous secret known only to a small band of people. If one touches the reliquary, a sacred vision is received—a vision involving a young girl who had a chance encounter with Jesus just before he was crucified. The few people who have been blessed with these miraculous messages have banded together into a mysterious school, a closed society that preserves this venerated wisdom. But their knowledge of the young girl and Jesus is at once so fascinating yet so highly controversial that it cannot be shared with the world. This young girl, curious about the charismatic man named Jesus, embarks on a quest to find out who he really was. What she finds—the knowledge the society protects—is at times far different from the accepted gospels. Could this unknown girl be the 13th Disciple—the last and truest apostle of Christ?

Paul Stutzman's hiking shoes have slogged through Maine's mud, filled with Mississippi River water, traversed Spain's plains, and now tread, in awe, some of the same hillsides, shores, and streets where Jesus' sandals trod. On a hike through Israel, Paul and his friend Craig visit places that were prominent in the life and ministry of Jesus. Paul is seeking two things: to better know the human Jesus and to find the answer to a question that has puzzled him for years-What does it mean to follow Jesus? This journey changes Paul's understanding of many of the stories in the Gospels. He writes his account in hopes that you, too, will find a closer relationship with Jesus of Nazareth as you go with him and Craig to Nazareth, Capernaum, the far country, the gates of hell, the manger in Bethlehem, the Garden Tomb, and the city of Jerusalem.
