Chapter 3

"What do you mean?" Dr. Tenny asked.

I stepped up to the videophone and introduced myself.

"Hello Dr. Tenny. My name is Michael Aurelius. What I am about to tell you may sound crazy, but bear with me until I am through," I said.

"You have my full attention," He replied.

"My wife, Mary, and I are from the past. To be more precise, we are from the time era called the first century. While there, I was a Roman guard in a prison house that held a strange little man named Paul. He was a Christian; obviously back before it was outlawed. Over a period of two years, he convinced me of a man called the Christ. He told me he had seen him face to face," I started.

"Yes," he replied, "There are ancient texts that explain what you have just told me."

"I'm glad, then you won't have any problem with the rest of my story. On the day that was set for his execution, the Christ came into the prison cell where Paul was. He walked right through the wall! He was quite a bit taller than Paul, and dressed as a scholar in a long elegant white robe with a purple cloak that draped over his right shoulder and flowed down his chest to his waist. He was undoubtedly real. All of us there saw him, and heard his voice as he strengthened Paul with words of encouragement. The next thing I knew the room started to get brighter and brighter until I could not see. When I could see again I was in this place, or rather, millennium," I said.

"Interesting, but how does that help me?" He inquired.

"I had a dream about you, and the frozen man. It was told to me, in that dream, that the frozen man is called John," I said, wondering if he was really believing me or not.

"I see," he started, "Then you can tell me about the time he is from?"

"I can. I would like to come where you are tonight," I explained.

He paused as if he was trying to formulate a plan to get us in.

"I can't see why that would be a problem, Mr. Aurelius. I'll just make it an all inclusive invitation, so Tom, I will expect you as well," He said.

"I wouldn't miss this for the world!" Tom replied.

With that, the videophone communication ceased. The excitement in the air was thick enough to cut with a knife. I turned to retrieve my cider, and noticed Mary was already headed for the front door. Tom looked at me with a grin on his face.
