In the Bible we are told Jesus was lost in the temple for three days when he traveled to Jerusalem for Passover with Mary and Joseph.
Why did he stay behind? What did he do? Who did he meet? Where did he sleep? Was he ever in danger?
This Biblical novel is a compelling tale about 12-year-old Jesus, based on the second chapter of Luke’s Gospel. This book will grip your imagination—as you explore the Temple and experience the drama of ancient Hebrew traditions with the boy Messiah.
"When you fall in love, you want to spend as much time together as possible and learn all you can about your loved one. For author Chris Stepien, his book Three Days: The Search for the Boy Messiah was about love. His love of God led Stepien to want to know him better. His love for his own two sons led him to often contemplate what it must it has been like for Mary and Joseph to lose Jesus in the temple for three days. And his love of the Catholic faith led him to write a novel surrounding this event."
"His Biblically-based tale, set during the loss of the youthful Christ in the Temple (Lk. 2:41-52), offers many plausible and engaging answers as to what could have reasonably occurred during the three day separation from his mother and foster-father. In doing so, Stepien invites the reader to a rare exploration of the first century life-setting and activities into which these events occurred when Jesus actually walked upon the earth."
