The detective and the doctor travel back in time with the help of a Moriarty-designed time machine to investigate ten Bible destinations, unlocking clues to ten Bible mysteries. The most fascinating crime cases are those that are already solved, those that have been investigated by the police and brought to a swift, satisfying, and almost inevitable conclusion. So it is with Bible stories which the reader may consider familiar and unremarkable. But under close scrutiny these stories give up their hidden clues, their long kept secrets. Like a jewel newly polished, they sparkle and shine with a fresh, introspective light.
While traveling back in time to witness certain scenes, Holmes and Watson unravel ten different Biblical mysteries, including the following:
· The Hanging Tree: Why did Ahithophel hang himself?
· Righteous Blood is Red: Is Zechariah the son of Berekiah or Jehoiada in Matthew 23?
· You Miss, You Die: Why did David take five stones against Goliath?
· Dead Man Walking: Why did Jesus delay in coming to Lazarus in John 11?
