* It's been 30 years since the stars led Melchior the Magus to Bethlehem. As he ponders the heavens again, he wonders if Yeshua of Nazareth is that child in the manger, grown now and working miracles. And can any messiah save his own rebellious and drunken son, Daniel? A moving interpretation of the parable of the prodigal. Eight CDs.
Yod, 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? Daniel, the rebellious son of Melchior and Esther of Ecbatana, is a great embarrassment to his family. Life is boring beyond belief, Daniel thinks. But everything about his life is about to change. Over thirty years have passed since the stars led Melchior the Magus, former court astronomer to King Phraates of Parthia, to Bethlehem, the birthplace of the long-awaited Messiah. Melchior again ponders the signs in the heavens. Could the time of the young Messiah’s work on earth have now come to fulfillment? Could Yeshua be that child, grown up and working miracles? And could any miracle save Melchior’s son Daniel?
