Powerful! Content, deliver, and message...excellent job.

A nice Bible theme rewritten.

It again teaches us who our neighbor is.

Good work.

Loved it! I am a sucker for rewritten Bible stories. :)

I'm with Rachel on that one. I enjoy these familiar stories told from a different angle, presenting the feeling of the time itself: the senses engaged with the country, it's culture and the every-day aspects of life. Thank you for taking me there. I also liked the robber being Barabbas. It recalled the prisoner set free over Jesus - so... two bible stories that come to mind, both attached emotionally to me - really good.

(On a purely honing-craft angle, there was some mingling of present and past tenses - the bane of all writers everywhere - surely!)
I actually do not often like retold Bible stories, but loved this one. I had written some extensive comments, but my login had timed out and they were lost. If you are interested, check my profile for my email and drop me a note.
