The Wilderness Sojourn: A Journey of Solitude, Temptations, and Divine Revelation
Are you ready to journey alongside Jesus as he faces solitude, fasting, prayer, and the relentless temptations of Satan? In this arid and desolate landscape, Jesus is not alone; he finds companionship in unexpected forms, including ravens forming a smiley face in the sky and an Arabian Leopard watching over his slumber.
Hunger, thirst, and fatigue relentlessly assail him, pushing him to the brink of delusion. Yet, with unwavering strength from within, Jesus prevails with the help of his Heavenly Father. Through fervent prayers, he reminisces about the glory of his heavenly home and the creation of the universe.
Divine Discourse and the Blueprint of Redemption: Unraveling Jesus's Ministry in the Wilderness
As the days pass, Jesus embarks on a profound dialogue with God, revisiting the lives of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and many more. He finds comfort in memories of his family, especially his mother, Mary, as he wrestles with homesickness and loneliness and enjoys a visit from an unexpected visitor. Attempts from the enemy try to deter him from Elohim's plan.
In a divine encounter, God reveals the blueprint for Jesus's ministry on Earth, unfolding a grand plan filled with miracles, parables, and the ultimate sacrifice. But as the forty days draw to a close, the god of this world launches his final desperate attempts to steer Jesus away from his divine purpose.

Why I wrote this book!
I wanted to write a fiction book. As I sat in my office searching for an idea of what my first fiction book would be, I thought of Jesus in the wilderness. That thought has now turned into a formatted book and is ready for all to read.
As I wrote the manuscript, my thoughts were on you, the reader. I wanted to bring you a fictional story of Jesus’ time in the wilderness without the reader, who might have a more mature and advanced relationship with our Savior, not being offended and crying out heresy.
Since there is no account of what took place with Jesus in the wilderness outside of temptations mentioned in the gospels. I wanted to stay within a biblical truth, as well as fill in the meaning behind the reason Jesus went into the wilderness. To pray, fast, spend time with his Father, and be filled with the Power of God to overcome the temptations of the enemy. The fact that while he was a man born of this world, he was also fully God. So, my focus was more on the man that still needed to learn the ways of his Father and, quite possibly, the full plan that had to be revealed to him.
As the thought of the story unfolded, I realized that there were not going to be too many characters needed to tell the story: Jesus, God, Lucifer, and angels. So, with some imagination, I added memories and the appearance of Joseph.
Scene One: Jesus's prayers, dialogue with God, homesick for his family, and special visitor, are formatted from scriptures that are used as a backdrop. Scene Two: Disciples are revealed, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and the itinerary is backed by scripture references. However, the conversation plot in both scenes is imaginary and means no disrespect to God, Jesus, or any Christian belief. Scene Three: Satan's temptations are used as a backdrop to expand conversations that are imaginary. Chapter thirteen-ministering Angel’s visit is completely imaginary.
I pray that you enjoy the story and will learn something as well.
If you like The Chosen, then you will enjoy The Itinerary.
