About Rebekah’s Treasure:
Set in 70 A.D. Jerusalem, Rebekah’s Treasure takes readers to war-torn
Israel, mixing history with a tale of love and suspense. In order to flee
the advancing Roman army, Rebekah, along with her daughter, Esther, must
leave Jerusalem as well as her husband and sons. Escaping to Pella, she
joins other followers of The Way who have fled the coming danger that was
foretold by an oracle years before.
But Rebekah didn’t leave empty-handed. She brought with her the cup of the
Last Supper. In no time her treasure garners attention as miracles begin
occurring and believers credit the cup. It also causes outrage among the
devotees of Isis who fear this “magical” cup will draw away their
followers. In response they hatch a plot to steal it.
Things become more complicated when Rebekah’s daughter, Esther, runs away
and Rebekah’s husband, Ethan, embarks on a quest to retrieve the hidden
Temple treasure outlined in a copper scroll, and then take it to the Jewish
stronghold of Masada in order to “continue the fight.”
When reading Rebekah’s Treasure readers will see history unfold as
Titus’ legions lay siege to Jerusalem and the Temple. Yet amid the chaos of
war there is love and faith and hope as Rebekah and her family struggle to
survive as well as to discover where their true treasure lies.
