What happened after the most important event in Christian history?
In 2004 an American army patrol rescues a frightened group of Iraqi Christians fleeing Islamic militants. The refugees’ severely wounded leader insists on handing over a mysterious bundle only to the army chaplain. What could this bundle consist of that the dying old man had guarded it with his life?
When the bundle is opened, the chaplain finds that it contains an ancient manuscript written in an unknown language. Fearing for its safety in war-torn Iraq, he manages to have it shipped back to the States and it eventually winds up in an Eastern Orthodox monastery where linguists begin to interpret it.
What they find is absolutely astonishing: a first-century AD testimonial in Aramaic about what happened to Jesus’ apostles after the Resurrection. But time is running out. A fanatical Iraqi insurgent organization is bound and determined to retrieve or destroy the ancient manuscript before the linguists complete their work.
During the height of the Iraq War, an American army patrol rescues a small group of Iraqi Christians fleeing Islamic insurgents. These refugees have in their possession an ancient Aramaic manuscript they have guarded with their lives. When the manuscript is sent to America and translated, scholars the world over will be astonished when it is revealed to be a first century account of what actually happened to Jesus' apostles in the years after the Resurrection; where they went and how they died.
While the translation is in process, a fanatical group of Iraqi terrorists learns where the manuscript is located and resolves to retrieve it and return it to Iraq.
