Jahred and the Magi
Author: Wilma Clark
Set against the exotic cities and cruel times of the Middle East two thousand years ago, this is a story of bitter intrigue and dangerous honesty, valour and cowardice, love and hate, death … and birth.
Jahred, his father imprisoned for outspoken prophecies, grows to young manhood in kingdoms of the wise and the wicked where one flattering remark can earn the favour of princes and one wrong word can bring torture and death.
Jahred - wise beyond his years - is charged with a quest to prove his father's prophecy true. On his journey, he joins with others - the famous Magi of Christian tradition - making the same quest for reasons of their own … following the strange star they believe will lead them to a King who will rule over all kings.
A fast-paced thriller of a novel, superbly researched and intelligently told, which explains in realistic, unsentimental words who the mysterious Three Wise Men, who make only a brief appearance in the New Testament, might have been.
