About-

The impact Jesus had on numerous lives during his earthly ministry is obvious from the Gospel records themselves. But what we do not have is personal testimonies by those persons whom Jesus helped, healed, befriended, or recruited as disciples. In this creative exploration of what sort of testimonies those original encounters might have produced, Ben Witherington paints a picture for us of what the well known and the less well known eyewitnesses might have said had they been asked. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of the historical context in which Jesus operated, Witherington brings these men and women out of the shadows and into the light of day. 

Endorsements & Reviews-

“A well-crafted collection of Gospel stories based on the greatest story ever told. A perfect reader for devotion and meditation.”

—Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University



“Ben Witherington leads us through well-known Gospel passages via an imaginative retelling that combines existential alertness with informed historical understanding. The result is a fresh engagement that brings the biblical text to life. This book will be ideal for study groups.”

—Walter Moberly, Durham University



“Combining the flare of a novelist and the erudition of a trained historian, Witherington and Myers imaginatively fill in the gaps of select biblical stories and thereby deliver both insight into the New Testament passages and a deep sense of familiarity with characters who had various kinds of encounters with Jesus. Readers will feel that they have learned much and have enjoyed themselves immensely in the process.”

—David R. Bauer, Asbury Theological Seminary
