A Gospel Story
A Raw Vision of
How Christianity Began
This book is a daring
look at the Jesus of history:
And it’s a cracking adventure
set in the Holy Land—
with wise prophets, sneaky thieves
and ruthless Romans!
Find New Meaning in Jesus’ Message
It all started with a simple question:
What was the real message of Jesus all about?
Since then it has become my passion to explore Christian origins
and tell the New Testament story in a hard-hitting and realistic way.
I’m excited to now present you THE REIGN OF GOD comic series,
hoping that it will help you find new meaning in Jesus’ message and life.

The Beginning of an Epic Story
With his country in turmoil, the mysterious Yochanan (John the Baptist) calls the people of Israel to clean their hearts in the Jordan river and await God’s great renewal.
As Yochanan speaks truth to the corrupt temple priests and scandal-ridden prince Herod, rumors spread he could be the long-awaited Messiah…
Shimon, a youth tormented by a violent past, is drawn to his charisma and the promise of a new world. And he is touched by Yeshua (Jesus) from Galilee, one of Yochanan’s disciples.
But Yeshua and Yochanan disagree on what God’s will: to simply wait until the Kingdom of Heaven arrives, or to go to Jerusalem and confront the authorities?
All of this is told by Shimon as an old man in 70 AD, when war is waging in Judea and Jerusalem is at the brink of destruction…
About the Book
I believe the Jesus of history was
a man of incredible courage.
Creating this book,
I fell in love with him again—
the maverick hungry for justice,
the poet caring for the
most neglected people on earth.
His way is one of
radical transformation through love.
