Eli had heard about Jesus’ profound teachings and amazing miracles, but he had never seen Jesus. The more he heard, the more he was awed by this man. Was Jesus the Messiah who would deliver the Jews from Rome’s oppression? Could he heal Eli’s crippled father? How Eli longed to meet Jesus!
But he soon learned his admiration was not shared by all. Even some of his own family hated Jesus bitterly. Eli never did see Jesus on earth, But long after the dark days of the cross and the tomb, Eli discovered something even more wonderful-that Jesus could be found anywhere, any time, by anyone open to receive Him.
Set in New Testament times and including a wealth of information about Jewish life and customs, this is an inspiring story of blossoming faith, seeking and finding the truth, and drinking deeply at the Fountain of Life.
