In a world drenched in violence and oppression, here was a
man armed with a message of peace and freedom. Into lives nearly overwhelmed by
grief and sorrow, he brought compassion and healing and the deepest joy. To
people who felt like outcasts and aliens, he showed the way home. And then, in
one devastating night, all their hopes collapsed.
This is where our story begins, in the valley of despair.
It is a tale of two friends, a stranger, and a search for truth in a world gone
mad with doubt.
Historian Joseph Loconte unlocks the meaning of their
exchange, set in the chaotic days following the execution of Jesus of Nazareth.
Drawing from literature, film, philosophy, history, and politics, Loconte shows
how this biblical drama is an integral part of our own story. Sooner or later,
we will find ourselves among the searchers.
