Take This Cup
Nehemiah is born and raised among the Jews
who didn't return to Jerusalem from the Exile.
He grows up with the expectation
of a soon-coming Messiah.
Could the Yeshua of Nazareth be that Messiah?
When Nehemiah must travel the long caravan road to Jerusalem, he is charged with an unusual mission—to carry a mysterious object back to the holy city.
He arrives in Jerusalem just as the final events of Jesus' earthly ministry are coming to a climax.
Only Nehemiah understands the true sacrifice that is to come as he makes the cup worthy of his Savior.
BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 70 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print in 30 languages.

Bodie's byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Waynes Batjac Productions and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as a writer with talent that captures the people and the times! She has degrees in journalism and communications.
In 2016, Bodie's writing returned to the big screen with the release of I'm Not Ashamed: The Diary of Rachel Joy Scott
Brock is described by Bodie as an essential half of the writing team. With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children: Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie, and nine grandchildren.
