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:
This book was like none I have ever read.  It told the story of Jesus from a completely different angle and point of view.  I learned so many things from this story about the time when Jesus was on earth and about how certain people viewed Him.  This book was such a great read before Easter.  The story is great and what is even better is that it is true... of course, we don't know exactly what Lazarus thought, but this book does a pretty great job at telling everything as accurate as possible. 
I recommend this book to every Christian.  It is wonderful to hear the story from this point of view.  You will be inspired!
 
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest comments and opinions.
