In A.D. 25, living in close proximity to the tempestuous Herod Antipasmeant continually skirting the edge of danger.Rumors abounded of an uneducated carpenter's son from the Galil-Yeshua ben Yosef, of Natzeret-who supposedly healed the sick. Yohana hadnever put much stock in so-called miracle workers. So many charlatans pliedtheir trade in and around Jerusalem, making fantastic sums off a gullible anddesperate populace. Yohana was determined not to be one of those drawn in,yet there was something different about this new miracle worker..

Author/Artist Review

Author: Deborah Galiley
Located in: Upstate New York
Submitted: December 16, 2008

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and am married to a Messianic Jewish Rabbi (that makes me a Rebbetzin). I have five children: two boys and three girls. The boys are both in college and the girls are still home. I love to read, write and take long walks. I'm the percussionist on our congregational worship team.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to tell the Gospel from a feminine point of view. Additionally, I have seen the power of God move in my life multiple times, healing me from breast cancer. I wanted to portray Yeshua as the healer, an aspect of him with which I'm very intimate.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that the people who already know Yeshua will catch a new glimpse of him. For those who don't yet know him, it's an opportunity to read the Gospel in a very low pressure way, as a novel.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It took me almost a year to write YOHANA, and during that time I was constantly reading Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. My knowledge of scripture and my faith were both built up. I also went to a deeper level spiritually with the Lord as I envisioned and wrote scenes in which I was right there, interacting with him.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The Bible is my main influence. Other writers include C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Hannah Hurnard. Some of the secular authors who have impacted me include William Faulkner and Willa Cather. Of course, I wouldn't be a girl if I didn't love Jane Austen!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I wrote YOHANA with a firsthand understanding of the miraculous healing power of God. I also have a shimmer of a glimpse of his great love for us. Each one of us has an opportunity to be like Yohana, following the Master and being counted among his intimates.
