They're simple shepherds,
living a sparse existence.
Yet upon their obscure village will fall
the greatest wonder of all time . . .
and the most terrifying rampage.
Beth-lehem, six miles from Jerusalem, is comprised of simple folk who spend their days tending sheep, newborn lambs, and their own families. Among them-as guests of Zadok, Rachel, and their three little boys-are Mary, Yosef, and baby Yeshua, whose birth was announced by a miraculous conjunction of the stars and a throng of angels in the sheep fields.
Convinced by their study of the stars and prophecies that the long-awaited Messiah has been born, foreigners travel toward Jerusalem. Surely the capital city of the Jews will hold the answer to the mystery they have sought for months.
Tortured by nightmares that someone is coming to take over his kingdom, King Herod grows more paranoid. He gives an order to his soldiers-one more devastating and evil than anyone could imagine. That very night soldiers and their mounts thunder toward Beth-lehem, the village of the sacrificial lambs. . . .
Who in Bethlehem could guess that their tiny, obscure village, populated by shepherds, would become the hinge upon which all history turns . . . and the focus of a terrifying rampage? "Sixth Covenant" is the conclusion of the three-book Nativity story within the A.D. Chronicles series. "Sixth Covenant" chronicles Mary, Yosef, and baby Yeshua in the first months of his life in Bethlehem. From the shepherd's visit to the escape to Egypt to the Bethlehem babies who gave their life for Jesus, discover the most critical events in the history of the world.
