The Project

The three-book series of the Chaldean Magi Family

The three-book series of the Chaldean Magi Family from 734 BC in Nineveh, Assyria to Bethlehem in Judah in year zero, is a series titled Magi Journey.

The three books center on the prophecies of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Daniel. Prophecies of judgment and redemption are seen through the eyes of the Chaldean Magi. The story in the series is told by the Magi, who see the star of the Messiah and journey from Persepolis, Persia, to Bethlehem. The Family has two storytellers who teach the Family’s children each evening. The teachers, Rahim and Pari, unroll the ancient scrolls written by their ancestors and teach the children. The scrolls tell the story of their involvement with the prophets and how the Family became secret believers and followers of YAHWEH. It also tells the story of the Magi who served in the Assyrian and Babylonian armies as they carried out the judgments on Israel and Judah. The teachers tell the story of the fall of Assyria and the rise of Babylon, and finally, the fall of Babylon and the rise of Persia. The near-term prophecies are completed by the redemption of the Jewish slaves and their return to Judah. Book one, Magi Journey – Assyria, is 200 people known as the Magi Family who travel from Persepolis, Persia, to Babylon. The teachers in Book one tell the story of the beginning of the Family in Nineveh in 734 BC and the history of Assyria, Israel, and Judah for a sixty-five-year period ending in 669 BC. I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing the story.

The Book within the Book

When I finished the novel, I discovered that God had written several themes not part of my original design. Four young men in the book grow in spiritual maturity, and it is the story of their struggle to find God and learn what it means to be a Godly man. 

It is the story-

·         Of a grandfather and father who seek to serve God and lead the Magi Family.

·         Of two young couples learning to build a Godly marriage. 

·         Of women of faith who love, teach, lead and fight when necessary.

·         Of the heartache of two brothers separated by jealousy and envy and their struggle to reconcile. 

 

·         Ultimately it is about the Magi who go to worship the Messiah – they have seen no miraculous healings, they have not heard Him teach, they have not seen Him rise from the dead. Yet this Magi Family believes God. These Gentiles believe the prophets, and they travel 1,000 miles to worship the Messiah. Hebrews 11;15-16  states, “If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return.  But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.”

My Mission

To faithfully tell the plan of redemption, revealed in Scripture. God is Holy – Isaiah 6:3 (ESV) ““Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”. God judges sin – 2 Peter 2:4-10 “For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world,…9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,” God redeems man from sin and judgment – 1 Cor 15:21-22 “For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” God revealed through his prophets the judgment of Israel and Judah, and the redemption of Judah from Babylonian captivity. God reveals through those same prophets, the coming of the Messiah and the redemption of man from his sin. If one proved unerringly true, the other must also be true.
