The Last Disciple Excerpt 3
Liquefied mud splashed onto their sandals, feet, legs, and even the lower areas of their robes.
The narrow streets echoed with shouting, swearing men and boys, flicking whips and rope ends to encourage reluctant donkeys.
As they neared the ancient walls of the City of David, the foot traffic increased. Men young and old swarmed around them. Women wearing black robes and shawls to cover their heads walked together in groups, likely heading towards the market area.
Just before the Pool of Siloam, they joined a tide of men flowing up the broad, stone boulevard leading towards the Temple gates. They jostled past two men in long, blue robes that contrasted with the muted colors favored by most. Bartholomew nodded toward the men in blue, mouthing the words, “Scythians, Black Sea” to John.
As they reached the last uphill stretch, John stopped for a moment and bent forward, gasping for air. Both men caught their breath, then trotted up the broad steps leading to the double gates on the Temple’s southern side.
John’s nature and training rebelled at entering the Temple grounds in an unclean state. His feet, sandals, and the bottom of his robe carried a load of brown, sticky gunk. But even if he cleaned off in the nearby ceremonial baths, it would not help; he felt unclean inside too.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kurt is a Christian writer, living in Hawaii. A few years ago he did a study at his
church on the Apostle John. That little project got him hooked on the man who
started out life as a 2sherman and then became a disciple of Christ.
The more he learned, the more he wanted to know. What did John do after the
Cruci2xion? Why did he wait so long to write the Gospel of John? Where did he live
for the last 60 years of his life? This historical novel came out of the research he did
to answer those questions.
He started a blog (KurtBrouwer.com) a few years ago. On it he has written over 100
blog posts and a few Christian booklets.
Now he’s working on Book Two in this series. The Last Disciple: Escape to Antioch
takes up where Book One ends. The Last Disciple is a Christian historical novel that
introduces you to John, the last disciple of Christ.
