The Reign of God II
A Gospel Story
A BIBLICAL DRAMA OF EPIC SCALE
“The Reign of God” comic series continues in Kefar Nachum (Capernaum at the Sea of Galilee), where Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) assembled his first followers.
Through vivid depictions of first-century life and landscape, readers experience the impact of Jesus’ message—and his miracles—anew. Above all, “The Reign of God” is a hard-edged character drama with soul, centering on friendship, faith, and the vision of changing the world.
“It’s such a clever way to introduce readers unfamiliar with the Gospel to the person of Jesus and the ideals he presented by the very way he lived.” (Joyce Ray, author and poet)

Thrown into confusion, Yochanan’s disciples part ways: Yeshua (Jesus) disappears into the wilderness, and Shimon, the vagabond, goes to Galilee, where soon a new prophet is going to arise...
