Book Description

When the plebian tribune Titus Velerius, commissioned by Liberius Caesar to conduct an Inquest on the death and alleged resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, embarked on his mission, he was as pagan as any Roman Patrician. But a series of events in Caesarea, his meetings with the Jewish leaders, Roman centurions, and followers of Jesus as witnesses changed his attitude; he could understand the Messianic ministry of Jesus in a spiritual light and the cunning nature of the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas and the Roman Prefect of Judaea, Pontius Pilate in the proper perspective. His words and deeds began to display his favorable attitude to Jesus. Consequently, when he was about to wind up his mission and return to Rome, Caiaphas and Pilate conspired to eliminate him. Their mercenaries set fire to the house of Joseph of Arimathea where he was taking part in a community prayer and reduced it to ashes. This play, replete with inexplicable miracles from the beginning, ends with a gripping climax that presents whether Titus Velerius escaped alive or not.
