July 16, 2022 (Edward J Barr) This month the legend of the Gray Apostle was unveiled in “The Gray Apostle: Mission of the Messiah.” The novel is based on the biblical events of Jesus’s ministry, from before his birth to his passion and death. The action is pitted between two groups, the occupying Roman forces led by ruthless intelligence officers, and youngsters guided by the mysterious gray apostle. The Roman soldier who will be a thorn in the side of Jesus’ ministry is a counterintelligence officer who runs undercover operations to maintain the Pax Romana. The gray apostle directs three young Jewish children (Jonathan, Sapphira, and Ananias) who are drawn to Jesus by different paths, all converging under his leadership and guidance. They are trained in intelligence operations and conduct missions behind the scenes in support of Jesus’ mission.
If you love the bible and are intrigued by intelligence operations and spying, maybe you will be able to determine – who IS the gray apostle?
The Gray Apostle: Mission of the Messiah is currently for sale on Amazon and will soon be available on other book distributing outlets.
