We know much about Jesuss early life and his last years. But there are twenty years for which little, if anything, is known. Did he simply spend his adolescence as a carpenters apprentice in Nazareth? Is that what he meant when he referred to his Fathers work? Or was there more to those two decades?
Author Doris Broughton Heath was intrigued by those missing years. She used her insatiable curiosity and quest for knowledge and truth to open the door to Jesuss whereabouts during those years. Heath spent the last seven years of her life working on My Brother, My Lord: A Journey with James and Jesus from the Temple to the Tomb. She brings together Jesus and his older brother, James, and sends them on a journey to spread the Word of God. They visit new and exciting cities and discover diverse cultures as Jesus performs his first miracles. Although a work of fiction, she researched the history and biblical events known to have occurred during that time to add authenticity.
After Heath died in 1991, My Brother, My Lord: A Journey with James and Jesus from the Temple to the Tomb sat untouched until her daughter, Linda Stevens, found it six years later and fulfilled her promise to her mother to have it published. Now you are invited to discover Heaths imaginings of what happened during Jesuss missing years. And perhaps come up with your own theories.
