Episode One

Experience the characters in the Bible brought to life! This tale treads the perilous paths that teenager John the Apostle followed when he hooked up with Jesus almost 2,000 years ago.

It’s the story of “the disciple Jesus loved” (John 13:23). He’s also known as John the Apostle, son of Zebedee; John the Evangelist, author of the Gospel and three Letters of John; John of Patmos, who wrote the book of Revelation; and John the Elder, the revered leader of the Church of Ephesus in the closing years of the first century AD.

This is historical fiction. It’s historical, for it strives to be true to all that is known about the characters, their locations, and their actions from the Bible, from archaeology, and from other historical sources. It’s fiction, for it fills in this record with a tale told by the author, informed by the author’s estimate of what may have actually happened.

Endnotes refer to Bible verses which contain the nonfiction, the stuff that really did happen. Enjoy the story, and remember that it is only part nonfiction, and the rest is in the realm of possibility.

Episode One takes place in AD 27, when young John meets Jesus. Episode Two will be released later this year. For the latest schedule, you’re invited to ‘like’ my page at facebook.com/AuthorRolinBruno

Episode Two

These are the adventures of teenager John, the youngest apostle of Jesus. He became known as “the disciple Jesus loved” (John 13:23), and later wrote the biblical books of the Gospel of John, the three Letters of John, and the Revelation of John. Like any teen, John and the other teenaged disciples made mistakes and were unsure of themselves. But they had Jesus and the older disciples to rely on, including John’s married brother Peter and the former tax collector, Matthew. Danger and opposition followed in the tracks of Jesus throughout his travels in AD 28, and John was close by his side to share them.

This is historical fiction. It strives to be true to all that is known about the characters, their locations, and their actions from the Bible—from archaeology and other historical sources. It fills in the blanks with a tale told by the author, informed by the author’s estimate of what may have actually happened.

Episode Three

This is the third episode in the adventures of teenager John, the youngest apostle of Jesus. He became known as the disciple Jesus loved (John 13:23) and later wrote the Bible books of the Gospel of John, three Letters of John, and the Revelation of John. In the last years of the first century AD he was known as John the Elder, the revered leader of the Church of Ephesus.

As with any teen, John and the other teens among the disciples would make mistakes and be unsure of themselves. But they had Jesus and the older disciples to rely on, including John’s married brother Peter and the former tax collector Matthew. Danger and death threats followed in the tracks of Jesus throughout his travels in AD 29, and John was close by his side most of the time.
