Nehemiah, the young son of a Jewish woman, a weaver from Jerusalem, is born and raised among the Jews who didn't return to Jerusalem from the Exile. Educated by Rabbi Kagba, one of the magi present at Jesus' birth thirty years earlier, Nehemiah grows up with the expectation of a soon-coming Messiah. Could the Yeshua of Nazareth, who is walking the earth, reportedly doing miracles, be that Messiah? When young Nehemiah must travel the long caravan road to Jerusalem, he is charged with an unusual mission---to carry a mysterious object back to the holy city of Jerusalem . . . an object whose reappearance heralds the Messiah's arrival.Nehemiah arrives in Jerusalem just as the final events of Jesus' earthly ministry are coming to a climax: the Feast of Dedication, the Triumphal Entry, the last cleansing of the Temple, and culminating at the Last Supper in the Upper Room. Only Nehemiah understands the true sacrifice that is to come as he makes the cup worthy of his Savior

Following Nehi's journey was such a wonderful experience! I really enjoyed this entry in the Jerusalem Chronicles trilogy. Not only did I love traveling with Nehemiah and watching him grow as things ocurred around and to him, but I really enjoyed a child's perception of Jesus, the portrayal of the apostles, and the storyline of the White Stag. The Thoene's have an incredible talent at melding multiple storylines amid the greatest story ever told.
My major complaint (what made me give it only 4.5 stars) was that there were many times when I had to remind myself that Nehi was a child; he was beyond precocious, he was unrealistically mature at times!
Overall, perhaps my favorite book in this series!
