“The first duty of any Jew is to protect the Temple. I will fight that battle.” John, the son of a vintner living on the shores of The Sea of Galilee, wants nothing more than to live in peace and grow the finest grapes in Israel. Roman occupation has made that difficult, and the Zealots who oppose them have made it impossible. As the factions battle each other, the hand of Rome tightens its grip and John must decide who, and what he must fight for. On one of the darkest days in the history of Israel he will make a decision that could save the temple… or destroy it.
