A woman dressed in a simple cloak running through the empty streets of the not-quite-awake city stumbled and fell, scraping her knees and the palms of her hands on the rough cobblestones.
Coming to the door of a poor house in the lowest section of the city, she pounded desperately, her lack of breath forcing her to her knees. Finally, the door opened, and two men, seeing the woman prostrate on their doorstep, helped her to her feet.
'What has happened to you?' John asked nervously.
'I've been to the tomb of our Lord. They have taken Him away!'
'Taken Him where?' asked Peter.
'Out of the tomb, I don't know where!'
A mighty rock has been rolled away. A tomb is empty. The body, Roman property, is missing. Pontius Pilate, desperate to quell the mob and save more than just his job, calls for a Judicium. The investigator arrives and begins by looking for a thief. Instead, he finds God.
Judicium is the story of the greatest mystery of all time told in novel form. With his telling of the ageless story, author Gerry Hess hopes to reveal something of the world Jesus lived in, the rightness of His words, and the importance He placed on faith, forgiveness, and charity. Most importantly, he hopes to show readers that man needs to believe, and that the simple beauty of Christianity is the only way to fill that need. An incredibly intelligent, fast-paced read, Judicium is a page turner with enough history and truth to make reading it time very well spent.
