Item description for Malchus: Touched by Jesus by Noni Beth Gibbs...
Overview When the sword of Herod maimed Safiya and slew her son, Josu, another son lay in her womb. Meet Malchus ben-Gershom chief servant of Aiaphas, the high priest. Even his own wife doesn't know his secret-the secret he must hide from Herod at all costs. His anger with God makes him good at his job: getting rid of false messiahs. First assignment: capture Barabbas. When a new teacher surfaces, Malchus is dispatched to neutralize this latest threat. Encounters with the Nazarene leave him puzzled. How could this Man so change his wife, Alona? At last a disciple betrays Jesus' secret resting place, and Malchus marches the Temple guard out for the arrest. But the sudden flash of a sword in the torchlight leaves him clutching his bloody head with one hand and preparing to murder a Galilean fisherman with the other. Then something happens that Malchus cannot explain. Now he is desperate to tree the One he helped to capture. With a cast of 70 vibrant characters, Noni Beth Gibbs offers us a new look at the Man on the middle cross-through the eyes of His enemies.

Reviews - What do customers think about Malchus: Touched by Jesus?
Wonderful, heart warming, a must read! Mar 14, 2006
Noni Beth Gibbs has taken one very small character from the bible and given insight as to how his life might have been lived out before and after Jesus' touch. She reminds us that even though this person is only mentioned shortly in scripture, he had a real life with a beginning, middle and end...just as everyone does. Thought provoking and told with a kind, unjudgmental tone.
A lovely story on it's own, with or without scriptural basis (which only added to the telling, imo).
Couldn't put it down!!! Mar 5, 2006
This book gives such a unique view of the life of Jesus from the eyes of his enemies. I found myself unable to put the book down and my heart racing over the excitment of the story.
Wonderful story of an enemy of Jesus Mar 5, 2006
The story is told from the point of view of Malchus, a servant of a high priest of Israel. His job is to spy on Jesus. The story of his brush with the Lord is touching and unforgettable. I didn't want the book to end.
