It’s 10 years after the death, resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus. Mary, His mother, is quite old and is aware that she is approaching the end of her life. She has so many memories of the life and ministry of her Son, and is keen to make a written record of them that can inform others after her death. She approaches Matthew for his help. However, all is not plain sailing as they have to contend not only with opposition from the authorities, but also differences between themselves. Will these problems prevent the completion of the manuscript, or will Christian love and the Lord’s protection grant them success?
