Lazarus and Y'shuah (Jesus' Hebrew name) grow up like brothers in the hills of Galilee. Both apprentice to their fathers as builders and carpenters until tragedy forces them to support their families. Lazarus refuses to believe his friend could be the Messiah of the Jews. He moves with his sisters to Judea and works alone until he suffers a crippling injury. His sisters learn that Y'shuah has become known in Galilee as a healer and teacher, so they summon him. Lazarus suffers an agonizing death. Four days later he hears his friend's voice calling him to come out of the tomb. His resurrection makes Lazarus a marked man. He is sentenced to die by the Sanhedrin Court for speaking about the miracle, but is offered a reprieve if he will keep silent. Lazarus sees Jesus crucified and in desperation flees to Galilee, where he is captured by a ruthless man-hunter.
