On another planet, more advanced than Earth, it is discovered that a star appeared above a young planet, Earth. Legend has it that such a star signifies the selection of the planet for a visitation of God’s presence incarnate. Wanting to know more about how this works, and expecting their own visitation in a few years, two men are sent to Earth to observe how this business of a messiah plays out. They want to be ready when their own appears.
The two observers are sent incognito and manage to follow Jesus and assess his ministry. Satan’s agents appear and attempt to sabotage Jesus and his disciples. The observers follow Jesus and his band closely. There are many close calls for the two, as well as for Jesus.
Finally, after Jesus is crucified, the two return to their home planet. They bring with them three survivors from Jesus’ followers. They will become an integral part of book 3 of the series.
