Jeshua, the one the Good Abbot calls Jesus.

http://www.digitalprintaustralia.com/bookstore/fiction/historical/the-verres-letter.html

 


Excerpt

I am by nature a thief
I steal to order
I amassed wealth beyond dreams of avarice
And then Felix the god of luck and cunning, the god of thieves deserted me. I made a terrible mistake and my dearest friends were slaughtered like stunned bulls, sacrifice to Mithras: Nor did the consequence of my mistake end with their deaths. My life and the life of all those I held dear fell down in ruin. Death snapped at my heels. I fled to Egypt and from there set out for Kathmandu which was about as far from Rome as I could at that time envisage.
Along the dusty road I mourned my friends, the fate of my loved ones: Consequence, I realised too late is a harsh, unforgiving mistress.
In Kathmandu I met Jeshua, a gifted healer, a scholar and a wise man. Three years later Jeshua gave me a sealed, cedar wood cylinder. He said it contained his testament. He asked me to carry it to the very edge of Empire. To Britain, a cool, green isle of drifting rain, of changing skies and soft, mellow sunlight.
I never left the isle
As for Jeshua’s testament?
Jeshua, the one the Good Abbot calls Jesus.
