Phoebe’s life was moving as orderly as the recitation of prayers on a shimmering springtime evening. She was ready to leave the one-room bavith she had shared with her family since birth, at the outskirts of Jerusalem, to wed her betrothed. She would learn to love Joel, she was sure of it. All they needed was time.
And then, strolling along the River Jordan with her young nephew, she came across a scene which would change her life. John the Baptist was talking with a man who radiated serenity. The visions seared her soul. A baptism – a dove – and a watching Roman legionnaire with steady eyes like a wolf’s. When Joel grabbed her arm and scolded her for straying from her path, she had that sense.
That sense that nothing would ever be the same.
