Book Info

About When Jesus Wept:
Book 1 in the Thoene's new Jerusalem Chronicles.
Lazarus occupies a surprising position in the Gospel accounts. Widely known as the man Jesus raised from the dead, his story is actually much broader and richer than that. Living as he did at Bethany, near Jerusalem, Lazarus was uniquely placed to witness the swirl of events around Jesus. When Jesus Wept, the first novel in The Jerusalem Chronicles series by bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene, unfolds the turbulent times in Judea during Jesus' ministry, centering on the friendship between Jesus and Lazarus. With rich insights from vineyard owners and vine dressers, the Thoenes explore the metaphor of Jesus as the True Vine, harvesting the ancient secrets found in the Old Testament. Weaving the life of Lazarus, who owned a vineyard, into the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ will help you understand it is the hand of Love Divine that holds the knife, that cuts and breaks with such tender and loving touch, and that we who have born some fruit, after the pruning, can bear much more.

My Review:
Bodie & Brock Thoene really bring to life the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus as well as the historical figure of Lazarus in this latest novel, "When Jesus Wept."  This is the first book in their new Jerusalem Chronicles series and I am looking forward to reading the next!  This book is so well-written as it is rich with historical details, and written in a way that the scenes just come alive and really draw the reader into the story.  Lazarus became a new person to me as he began so real and I felt like I learned much more about him besides just the fact that he had been raised from the dead by Jesus.  Reading this book now was perfect timing as well as Easter has just been celebrated and it was a great reminder of the real reason for Easter and a reminder of all that Jesus went through for each one of us.
