The brilliant first novel in a new multi-volume series reflecting the times of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus, from award-winning, bestselling authors Brock and Bodie Thoene.

Brock and Bodie Thoene have earned a reputation in the faith-based community as being master stylists with an emotional and authentic voice. This new, multi-volume series-The Jerusalem Chronicles-captures the power and the passion of the men and women who lived through the most critically important days in the history of the world.

When Jesus Wept, the first novel in the series, unfolds the turbulent times in Judea during Jesus’ ministry, centering on the friendship between Jesus and Lazarus. With rich insights from vineyard owners and vine dressers, the Thoenes explore the metaphor of Jesus as the True Vine, harvesting the ancient secrets found in the Old Testament.

The Thoenes weave the life of Lazarus, who owned a vineyard, into a fresh and dramatic tale. Readers will understand that it is the hand of Love Divine that holds the knife that cuts and breaks with such tender and loving touch. Those who have born some fruit will, after the pruning, bear much more.


Bodie and Brock Thoene (pronounced Tay-nee) are bestselling authors of over sixty-five works of historical fiction. Their timeless classics have sold more than thirty-five million copies and won eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards. The Thoenes have four grown children and eight grandchildren. They divide their time between Hawaii, London, and Nevada.
