They all need miracles. They all need the Healer. But will He come in time?
Yod, a young girl born in the Valley of Mak'ob, where lepers live out the end of their days, is heartbeats away from eternity in the Dying Cave. Stories abound about Yeshua of Nazareth, the miracle-worker. Dare she hope for a miracle-just for her?
Twenty-two-year-old Daniel, son of Melchior and Esther of Ecbatana, lives out his days in rebellion and a drunken stupor, a great embarrassment to his father and his older brother, Joshua. Life is boring beyond belief, Daniel thinks. Feeling that he can never meet with approval, Daniel asks for his inheritance and strikes out on his own. He innocently puts his trust in a man who promises him great wealth. But nothing is as it seems, and Daniel soon finds his life in danger. Only when he has lost everything does he begin to truly understand his father's love.
Melchior the Magus, former court astronomer to King Phraates of Parthia, has been a wealthy merchant, known for his integrity. He and his wife recall the stars that led them to Beth-lehem, to the birthplace of the long-awaited Messiah. It has now been over thirty years since that day, Melchior thinks. He again ponders the signs in the heavens. Perhaps the time of the young Messiah's work on earth has now come to fulfillment. Could Yeshua of Nazareth indeed be that young child, now grown up and working miracles? And could any miracle save Melchior's son Daniel?
