About the Book

LAZARUS—the man Jesus raised from the dead in one of the most extraordinary encounters with The Living Savior in all of Scripture. But the life of Lazarus holds interest well beyond this miraculous event. Living in Beth

any, near Jerusalem, Lazarus witnessed many of the most important events of Jesus’s life and ministry. Lazarus owned a vineyard and devoted his life to caring for its vines and fruit. But he encountered another man—Jesus—whose vineyard was the world, its fruit the eternal souls of men. When Lazarus’s story and the story of Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection touch in When Jesus Wept, we are offered a unique vision into the power and comfort of Christ’s love. Brock and Bodie Thoene’s most powerful and climactic writing project to date, When Jesus Wept, captures the power and the passion of the men and women who lived through the most important days in the history of the world.

Ronie’s Fast-Rope Review:

Known for their attention to historical detail and accuracy, the Thoenes shine in Jesus Wept. My reading of Thoene novels goes back to 1994 and  Twilight of Courage, so it was a no-brainer for me to want to help and participate in this blog tour!

The story brought a new dimension to Jesus—a friend. We know Him as Lord, and we know he had friends, but it’s one thing to read that He had friends and another to see what that friendship might have looked like. The story is told through Lazarus’s point of view, and it was intriguing to see the Thoene’s tie several events in the New Testament (the healing of the boy with mud on his eyes, the healing of the beggar told to pick up his mat on the Sabbath) to Lazarus’s life. Some felt a bit too convenient, but it did not detract from the story at all. An enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy biblical fiction.
