In her challenging new novel, award-winning author Naomi Alderman ('Disobedience' and 'The Lessons') conjures the world of Roman-occupied Judea and the fate of a charismatic Jewish preacher named Yehoshuah.

A year after Yehoshuah's death, four people tell their stories - his mother, Miryam; his former friend and follower Iehuda of Qeriot; the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, Caiaphas and the rebel, Bar-Avo.

In today's episode, the elderly rebel Bar-Avo encounters a follower of Jehoshuah, who believes that the preacher died and rose again.
