Three unique people Joshua of Nazareth, Linus Flavian, and Maria of Magdala are born in 5 B.C. during the appearance of an unusual star over the Middle East. Their lives will become intertwined through a series of events that will forever mark them. Around the time of their birth, superstition is rife. Intrigue between High Priests, the Herodians, and Rome, along with hope in an expanding world of greed and commerce, shape their differing destinies.
