Imagine sharing your home with the mother of the Messiah.

From the cross, Jesus gasped his final instructions: “Woman, behold, your son.” Remarkably, Jesus was giving his mother, Mary, to his beloved disciple, John. Then, Jesus declared this to his dear friend: “Behold, your mother.” (John 19:26-27)

Immediately, this new holy family was thrust into the unknowable, along with the Messiah’s closest followers. As they struggle through the vicious trauma of the Lord’s crucifixion and death—and their own deep doubt in his resurrection—they soon come to discover dazzling new life in their risen Master.

This historical, biblical novel peers into the darkest drama of the Upper Room and the years to come. The sequel to Three Days: The Search for the Boy Messiah journeys across time, from the three days of terror and confusion during Jesus’ passion and death, to many years after the Lord’s resurrection and ascension, intertwining Jesus’ mysterious childhood with the perils of his adult life, family, and friends.

Rich with Hebrew traditions and history, Disciples of Doubt follows a grieving John on the day the Blessed Mother dies. It continues through her funeral procession and memorial, alongside Mary Magdalene and other disciples as they grow the fledgling church of Ephesus.

As hundreds of mourners gather, intimate accounts reveal Mary’s life with Jesus, and later John. Who was the Mother of God and what did she encounter after the Lord ascended into heaven, leaving her with a broken, newfound son?
