Book Summary Of Talmid - The Book Of John
The story goes back to the first century. It's about three friends who take opposing views from each other after learning about a mysterious stranger who comes to their town of K'far-Nachum. This is the beginning of a chain of events that will change the world.
The main character is a twelve year-old boy named John who has a gift of memorizing Scripture quickly. Once the local priests learn of his talent, they involve him in dealing with the stranger who is called Yochanan the Immerser who is baptizing townspeople in the local river and is in defiance of the established religious order. Once he is successfully silenced, another even more formidable opponent from Natzeret comes to town, and takes John and his friends from their small town to Herod's Palace, Yerushalayim and then to a small hill called Gulgota.
Definition: tal•mid, pl. (tal•mid•im); An indentured apprentice-student of a Rabbi; a student studying under discipline, hence "disciple" rather than merely "student."
