One man, one hope-two very different paths.
When 9-year-old Uzziel happens upon a small child in a manger, in his home town of Bethlehem, he knows instinctively that he has discovered something amazing. As he begins to piece together the ancient prophecies that are such an important part of his upbringing, he comes to the conclusion that the small child is the long-awaited Messiah.
His excitement at the discovery is soon ruined when the envious and suspicious Herod order all the boys in Bethlehem under the age of two killed. In one morning of extraordinary violence, Uzziel's younger brothers and cousin are just some of the many who are slain in the vain attempt to kill Jesus, which only cements and grows Uzziel's hatred of the Romans.
As time passes, Uzziel's support for those who would fight against the Romans does not diminish, but now he finds that his choices have been complicated as two very different leaders emerge, each with their own thoughts and their own distinct path to follow. But which way is the right one for Uzziel? And will either one help to rid his people of the oppression they live under?
