Magi Journey - Assyria

By Terry Phillip Garner


MAGI JOURNEY – ASSYRIA is the first in a three-book series that follows a Family of Chaldean Magi from the court of Tiglath—Pileser III, King of Assyria in 734 BC, to Bethlehem in -0- BC. Through the eyes of the Magi, we see the history of prophecy, judgment, and redemption unfold. In book one, the Magi recount:
• Meeting Isaiah, King Ahaz, and King Hezekiah of Judah.
• Campaigning with King Tiglath-Pileser III and King Sennacherib as they subdue the Levantine States and deport the people of Israel to Assyria.
• Creating the Magi school that will survive the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Empires and serve as the foundation of the Magi Family of faith.
As the Magi Family journeys from Persepolis, Persia, to Bethlehem, four young men grow in spiritual maturity. 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.
• Of God’s love, mercy, judgment, and redemption as seen through the eyes of the Magi.

Book Takeaway:

The primary takeaway from the book is that God is a Promise-keeper. He warns His people of what is to come because He loves them, and offers them redemption. But the judgments are sure.

Why the author wrote this book:

The book and the series, Magi Journey, tell the story of God's love, judgment and redemption. God's love is shown through the prophet, Isaiah, who warns the people to turn to God to avoid the coming judgment. Judgment is pronounced on Israel, "no longer be a people", and on Judah. God must punish sin, because He is Holy. Redemption of Judah is also prophesied by Isaiah, and is accomplished. Isaiah also prophesies that God will judge all mankind at a future date, and the only means of redemption is through His Son. If the first prophecies are true and accurate, then so are the latter prophesies. The book is a message for today, that judgment is sure, but so is the offer of salvation.
