Synopsis
History and the Gospels have given us their actions but who really were Jesus and John the Baptist? Who was the man who launched a message of hope which is still modern today? And who was the “disciple that Jesus loved”, the young man who dedicated his entire existence to Jesus, standing by him during the most touching evangelical moments, from the resurrection of Giairo’s son to the Transfiguration, from the prayers of Gethsemane to the supreme act of the Crucifixion?

Out of the very human events of the lives of Jesus and John an unrepeatable and fascinating story takes shape, a lively and authentic testimony of a sentiment that matures over time, to be fixed in all eternity. Sandro Mayer and Osvaldo Orlandini, with their enthralling style, between epic and popular novel, able to impassion thousands of readers, are back on the shelves with a unique and powerful story, skilfully mixing documentaries and novelized truths. The story of a great friendship, able to surpass the confines of time, brings to life a colossal that will once again enthral and move the authors’ numerous and faithful readers.
