When Jesus Wept by Bodie and Brock Thoene

About the Book
When Jesus Wept Book 1 in the Thoene’s new  Jerusalem Chronicles.
Brock and Bodie Thoene’s most powerful and climactic writing project to date, When Jesus Wept, captures the power and the passion of the men and women who lived through the most important days in the history of the world.
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.

Bodie and Brock Thoene
Bodie and Brock Thoene (pronounced Tay-nee) are bestselling authors of over sixty-five works of historical fiction. Their timeless classics have sold more than thirty-five million copies and won eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards. The Thoenes have four grown children and eight grandchildren. They divide their time between Hawaii, London, and Nevada.

My Take:  Bodie and Brock Thoene were one of the first Christian authors that I read everything I could get ahold of for awhile so when I saw this book was coming out I wanted to read it.  This book is just as good as I remember.  The Thoene's are very good at what they do.  They make the reader feel like they are right back in the time and place of the story.   The story addresses several aspects that I have wondered about like how did Lazarus feel about being brought back from Heaven. Could you imagine being called back to this world?  

I am glad that this is the start of a new series and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series as it comes out.  

I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Litfuse.
