Chapter 10

In the Captain's office, Romy, Onesiphorus, and Captain Antonio were discussing Jesus. They were comparing stories they had each heard, and trying to see if their stories validated one another.

"I've heard how he cured a man possessed of devils on a certain island," Onesiphorus said.

"I was in the marketplace once, and over heard a group of men who claimed they saw two of his disciples cure a man who had been a cripple from birth. The man was supposed to have jumped to his feet, and ran into the temple," Romy offered.

"In the Senate, he has many followers," The Captain said as he stood to his feet and looked at the two men confidently, "Although, I believe, they are secret followers. Each man I met had an amulet like the one I'm wearing. The same ones that offered me a seat told me about the way Jesus taught in the temples. They said he never tried to hide anything like the Sadducees claimed. I think they were afraid they would lose their power. I've watched many a man fall to the temptation of power."

Romy walked around the huge table and stood next to Captain Antonio, took out a dagger and laid it on the table.

"This is what makes me wonder," He said, as he pointed to the dagger. The gem on the black leather handle glimmered an eerie red as they all stared at it. Romy continued, "It's very easy to conceal one of these. Sometimes you don't know if someone is coming at you until it is too late!"
