ANN OF BETHANY by Georgiana Dorcas Ceder


Email this review


As in Ethan the Shepherd Boy the author weaves a story of a child who might have been involved in the events of the Bible story of the life of Jesus. The story here contains enough mystery and danger to appeal to even the squirming little boys in the back row of the Sunday school. Ann of Bethany, a little Jewish girl, hears with her parents of the birth of a King in Bethlehem from the three strangers mounted on camels who spend the night at their home. Her father goes to warn Joseph of the coming of Herod's spies, but it is Ann herself who warns them and holds the baby Jesus for a moment.
