On his way home from Judea, where he gifted the newborn King of the Jews with myrrh, Melchior of Alexandria has terrible dream and fears for the newborn’s safety. He returns to Jerusalem and convinces Joseph and Mary to accompany him to Egypt, where he watches over and protects them for several years before they return to Galilee. Many years later, the old magi once again returns to Judea, this time to see Jesus on his throne. But Jesus is not reigning in Jerusalem; he is wandering the countryside preaching his radical logos, changing the lives of all he meets, making both faithful friends and bitter enemies.
Melchior traces the footsteps of Jesus throughout Judea, finally coming face-to-face with the Master at the foot of the cross. Is this a crisis of faith or a new beginning?
