Two thousand years ago the man they called Jesus of Nazareth raised his cousin, Lazarus, from the dead. On that same fateful day, Jesus privately announced that Lazarus would now be a faceless eternal warrior who would fight to protect the weak and innocent until the end of days. For the last 2000 years, Lazarus has been a reluctant but faithful combatant in a never-ending battle against the forces of evil that howl in the darkest corners of the night. He has relentlessly pursued those who encourage slavery, prostitution, and other forms of oppression, and his pursuits have taken him across the globe.Since he’s incapable of sleeping, he often takes time to write about his adventures in a journal. Now he’s going back over his oldest records and resurrecting memories of the past to write an account of all he has seen and done. In this first book he goes back to the day he heard his cousin Jesus calling him to rise up from the dead and walk out of his tomb. He remembers those first few steps, and the steps that came soon after, as he was called on to lead Jesus and his followers into the Ephraim Wilderness to escape arrest and crucifixion in the days leading up to Passover week. If you’re looking for an amazing adventure story that’s packed with inspiration, intrigue, and even a little romance then you’ve come to the right place. Lazarus is an intriguing composite of Robin Hood, Tarzan, the Lone Ranger and Captain America, with a whole lot of Forrest Gump thrown into the mix just for the fun of it.As you read his story you’ll soon find yourself trying to whistle a tune, and you may even find yourself chanting, “For the weak . . . for the innocent . . . forevermore!” Get ready to step out of the tomb . . . These are The Lazarus Journals, so let the journey begin!
If you were there…You would have heard a surprising story about the mystical star that today inspires the annual crowning of cultivated saplings and the proud decoration of many homes. A star believed by many sent to glorify a newborn king. But there is a sinister side to the tale many have never been told. It is the untold story of a manipulated star that led unsuspecting astrologers to a jealous king bent on eliminating a rightful ruler.An artful star that indirectly influenced a hidden infanticide that neither clerics nor profiteers want to talk about or remembered.A pretending star of light guided by one known as “the serpent”.
My name is Madeleine Warwick. Legends say that during the Civil War, a black-sheep relative of ours stole from his employer and hid the loot on the family farm. I don’t believe in the stories, but that hasn’t stopped eager treasure hunters from trespassing all over our property and causing the accident that cost my uncle his life. Outraged and heartbroken, I forged a letter, claiming that the treasure never reached our land. This stopped the incursions – but only for a time. Now the treasure hunters are back and, what’s worse, my secret has been discovered.
Professor Gregory Randall knows about the forged letter, but he won’t tell – as long I let him stay on the property to search for the treasure himself. He’s convinced there’s something to find, and I’m starting to think he might be right.
It isn’t easy living in the same house as your blackmailer. Even as we race against our unseen rivals to find the treasure first, someone is determined to stop us: and they’re willing to use violence to do so. I’m running out of ideas, options, and time, and what’s worse, I’m realizing that Randall is the only one I can rely on.
My first defense is the last man I can trust.
