Who was Judas?
The betrayer or the facilitator?

I’m not sure what to make of this book. The telling is woven with a fine thread but something is askew. The beginning and the end – page turners. The middle stalled me – laborious detail and characters I still was unable to get emotional about (even after one hundred pages).

This is a good story based on the theological history surrounding the lives of Judas Iscariot and Jesus of Nazareth. There is a lot of information to digest. So much so that Mayhall had me going through my own theological research papers for confirmation on many of the theories set forth in the book.

An Oil Jar inscribed with the name Judas Iscariot is found in a cave by a man who, years later, is murdered for it. The daughter inherits the jar, and the race to find the true identity of the one person everyone believes to have betrayed our Savior, begins.

Judas the Apostle is a good story, but …… I never felt that punch in the gut.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
