    Who is this Jesus? allows us to witness the Crucifixion and see the Resurrected Jesus through the eyes of Claudius, a young Roman guard.

    Claudius was one of the guards set to watch the tomb that dark night that Jesus was buried.

    He was one of the guards who felt the ground shake, who saw the light, who fell to the ground terrified of the angel who appeared.

    Claudius was one of the guards who looked into the empty tomb, and trembled.

    Claudius was one of the guards told to lie about what happened that night.

    He is told that he fell asleep, and as he slept the heavy stone was rolled back and the followers of Jesus stole away His body.

    Claudius knows it is a lie.

    He knows that Something Else happened.

    So Claudius goes to the upper room where the followers of the Lord are gathered.

    And he tells them he knows this was no ordinary man.

    He knew it when he helped crucify Jesus, who prayed for him instead of fighting and cursing.

    He knew it when Jesus looked from the Cross with eyes full of pain and yet love for his tormentors.

    Claudius knew it when he stood up, shaking, after the earth shook and the light shone and he found an empty tomb.

    And Claudius is asking, Who is this Jesus?

    The answer he receives for that question is the answer we all need to find.

    I will not spoil the emotion of the ending by telling you about it.

    I will simply say the ending is beautiful and so like our Jesus, to answer this seeker's question that way.

    The paintings in this book are evocative and warm, bringing to life the confused faces of the disciples, the lamp light on the burnished metal of a Roman shield, and the final, tender scene.

    Thank you to Worthy Publishing for sending me this beautiful book to review, and to the author and artist for writing and painting to Glorify the Risen One.

    Max Lucado provides his readers with a unique perspective regarding the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. The story is told from the perspective of a Roman solider named Claudius. He was assigned to work in Jerusalem for a year and thought that it would be a peaceful place to work. However, upon his arrival he had an uneasy feeling that would not leave him. Jerusalem was not the peaceful place that he imagined. Claudius soon found himself in a situation in which he did not desire. He was given the assignment to work at Golgotha the day of Jesus' crucifixion. Claudius explains what he witnessed that day as well as the days to follow.

    I love Max Lucado books and his relaxed writing style. He can say so much with so few words. This book is no exception. I really enjoyed this story along with the original artwork provided by world-renowned artist C. Michael Dudash. It was interesting to view the crucifixion and resurrection through a different set of eyes. I believe this is a good book to read whenever a reminder is needed of how much the Lord loves us.

    *I would like to thank Worthy Publishing for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
