The Old City has fallen.

In the midst of the destruction, Moshe Sachar, the courageous Israeli leader, remains in a tunnel safely hidden deep below ground. There he guards one of the few remaining treasures of Jewish antiquity: ancient, sacred scrolls that tell of a long, heroic history. With the instructions of an elder rabbi, Moshe opens a scroll as he has done before, and again he becomes immersed in the story of Marcus, a Roman centurion, and Miryam, the troubled young woman Marcus loves. Their timeless love story is set against the corrupt and tumultuous politics of the Roman empire. Caught up in this dramatic moments in history is Avel, a poor young Jewish orphan fighting for survival on the streets of Jerusalem, who, searching for comfort after his best friend is killed by Roman soldiers, vows revenge. As word of miraculous deeds performed by the mysterious prophet Yeshua spreads throughout the people, his followers swell in numbers, and Roman officials fear a threat to the state. When Yeshua's cousin is brutally murdered at a Roman festival, tensions escalate, and Yeshua's fate becomes all the more uncertain.
