What to expect

Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges’ historically accurate, exciting and edifying audio recordings.

In For the Temple, Mr. Henty tells an exciting story from the record of Josephus. The troubles in the district of Tiberias, the march of the legions, the sieges of Jotapata, of Gamala, and of Jerusalem all come to life. In this impressive and carefully studied historical setting, you will follow a lad, John of Gamala, who passes from the vineyard to the service of Josephus. He becomes the leader of a guerrilla band of patriots, fights bravely for the Temple, and after a brief term of slavery at Alexandria, returns to his Galilean home with the favor of Titus. The fall of Jerusalem is brought to life in this classic.
