The Adventure Of Joshua The Odyssey

By Amanda Baird
Throughout the history of man, there are many points in time that are left unexplained. People come up with a lot of theories as to what they suppose happened in order to fill in the gaps. In Joshua The Odyssey Of A Man, an important piece of the past that has never been officially documented becomes the focus of an amazing adventure.

The many adventures in the Holy Bible are some of the most well known tales of all time. There are several points at which huge chunks of time are skipped over entirely, leaving readers to wonder what happened while nothing was being recorded. One such episode involves a man who is perhaps the most popular historical figure ever.

Jesus of Nazareth is known by Christian as the son of God and the Savior of souls, but he and his story are just as popular among people all practically all races, creeds and religions. The tale is so phenomenal that it is treasured by many. One interesting thing about it is that there is a span of about eighteen years, right in the middle of it, that has been left completely blank in the official account.

The Bible tells of Jesus’ immaculate conception, contains three separate accounts of his birth and multiple stories of his childhood leading to his eviction from the temple for speaking bag to the rabbi at age thirteen. There is nothing more until age thirty-one when he reappears gathering his disciples and the period before his famous death, resurrection and ascension. That is where this creative work of fiction picks up.

Renaming the title character Joshua, the author continues the story from the point where a thirteen year old Jesus is removed from the temple after an issue with the rabbi. Dr. Mathew uses other period writings along with some intense social and economical research on the era in order to bring to life a story filled with believable personalities. He manages to virtually transport the reader back nearly 2,000 years.

This brilliantly written piece of historical fiction is the work of Dr. Theckedath Mathew, MD who pens each detail so vividly that the reader may forget they are not partaking of an actual biographical telling. He gives the title character a life filled with real situations with points of emotions, family and travel. The story takes place in multiple lands such as Athens, Egypt, Rome, Babylon and several others.

Joshua, like the man he is based on, is on a mission to spread God’s word, to teach people how to live righteously and to help those in need. He is among the earliest proponent for women’s rights as he stops a group of men from passing judgement on a woman and stoning her to death for what they see as sin. He tells that all are sinners and none should condemn others unless they, themselves, are pure.

Among the best pieces of historical fiction, Joshua The Odyssey Of A Man is one tale fans of this genre would not want to miss. With characters that are so detailed they virtually leap off the page, the reader feels as if they are actually there. Though not a factual account, it is one of the more intricate works of speculation ever printed.
