The novel is based on a statement by Edgar Cayce, the late American prophet, that Jesus had visited "Persia, India, Syria and Egypt to complete His education." The author has thoroughly researched early Indian and Middle-Eastern history. He illustrates conditions in which such an education might have taken place to prepare Jesus for his ministry. As the story unfolds, Satia, the son of a wealthy caravan owner. meets the 12-year-old Yeshua (Jesus) as the latter flees in rebellion from his Essene teachers. The two become fast friends and stay that way for the 18 years not covered in the Bible - the years between the finding of Jesus in the Temple and the beginning of his short ministry. In addition to several novels, Law has written other books under his own name, Stanislaw Kapuscinski, which cover esoteric topics such as the Key to Immortality, Visualization, and The Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism.
