Woven into the fabric of prophecy, a young boy named Nehemiah must choose to embrace his destiny as cupbearer to the King of Kings.

When Nehemiah, the child of Jewish exiles, begins hearing whispers and experiencing portentous visions, it quickly becomes clear to his father and his rabbi that the young cupbearer is meant for a higher purpose . . . but what? Certain that the Messiah is alive at that very moment, the family waits for the boy’s destiny to be revealed.
From the ancient site of the Garden of Eden, Nehemiah undertakes a perilous journey. The caravan route is full of danger, hardship, and mystery—all of it linked to what Nehemiah has in his keeping.

In due time, his path becomes clear. It leads to Jerusalem, to a wealthy Pharisee named Joseph of Arimathea . . . and to Jesus of Nazareth.



I have always enjoyed the Thoenes’ books. They are able to take the Scriptures and add fictional aspects that make the original stories come alive. This particular story is written about a young boy who has been born to be the cupbearer of the Lord. It was young Nehemiah’s job to take the chalice cup that was bestowed to him and to clear the years of tarnish and give it to Jesus at just the right time.

Obstacles stand in his way throughout the journey, and Nehemiah finds himself traveling alone. He is forced to rely on individuals that he doesn’t know.

The novel is full of vivid imagery, and it will draw on your heartstrings. I highly recommend this novel to individuals who enjoy a bit of Biblical history.
