Characters

NADI 

When we first meet Nadi he is 63 years old and close to dying. Before that, when he was 27 years old, he ran his dad’s successful carpentry business in Nazareth and lived with his parents, Rachel and Ethan who he would do anything for.  He used to think his whole life was laid out before him, working, paying taxes, getting married, having kids and paying more taxes. 

He loves studying the Scriptures and writing in his journal.  He believes he is meant for something bigger than this life now but if he is happy, and with God and Chloe at his side, then his life will be a success.  

 

CHLOE 

         

When we first meet Chloe, she is 60 years old and still very beautiful. She is married to Nadi and they have a son, Adam. 

Before that, she lived with her father Joseph of Arimathea who was one of the wealthiest men in Galilee. She travelled with Jesus for three years and watched all his miracles first hand.

 

JESUS

When he first meet Jesus, he is 30 years old and works in Nadi’s carpentry business.  He is not married and lives with his mum, Mary.  He is well built and has short hair, then three years later he has long hair and a beard.  He has high hopes for his future, he knows he is the Messiah, the Chosen one, but keeps it a secret for now. 

When we see him in 33AD, it is the eve of his Passion and he is nervous, but he has a good group of friends around him, including Chloe. He has a great sense of humour and has no problems upsetting the status quo.  He wears his heart on his sleeve and shows incredible compassion, but he can be easily hurt and feels suffering like anyone else. 

 

LEVI  

 He is 24 years old and is Nadi’s older brother.  He has lost faith in God and lives by his own rules.  He has no hesitation in fighting the Romans to take back Israel.  He would die for this cause.
