Woven into the fabric of prophecy, a young boy named Nehemiah must choose to embrace his destiny as cupbearer to the King of Kings.

When Nehemiah, the child of Jewish exiles, begins hearing whispers and experiencing portentous visions, it quickly becomes clear to his father and his rabbi that the young cupbearer is meant for a higher purpose . . . but what? Certain that the Messiah is alive at that very moment, the family waits for the boy's destiny to be revealed.

From the ancient site of the Garden of Eden, Nehemiah undertakes a perilous journey. The caravan route is full of danger, hardship, and mystery--all of it linked to what Nehemiah has in his keeping.

In due time, his path becomes clear. It leads to Jerusalem, to a wealthy Pharisee named Joseph of Arimathea . . . and to Jesus of Nazareth.

In Take This Cup, the second installment of the Jerusalem Chronicles, Bodie & Brock Thoene envision more of Scripture's most enigmatic moments and expand their award-winning canon of historical fiction with unprecedented power and depth.

Following Nehi's journey was such a wonderful experience! I really enjoyed this entry in the Jerusalem Chronicles trilogy. Not only did I love traveling with Nehemiah and watching him grow as things ocurred around and to him, but I really enjoyed a child's perception of Jesus, the portrayal of the apostles, and the storyline of the White Stag. The Thoene's have an incredible talent at melding multiple storylines amid the greatest story ever told.
My major complaint (what made me give it only 4.5 stars) was that there were many times when I had to remind myself that Nehi was a child; he was beyond precocious, he was unrealistically mature at times!
Overall, perhaps my favorite book in this series!
