Remaining true to Biblical culture and scholarship, this historical fiction book offers a creative presentation of Christian faith and values, making it the perfect addition to your home or school library!

The siblings time-travel to a small town where they meet Levi, the son of a merchant. They discover that Levi had been in a crowd listening to Jesus speak and was the one who offered to share his five loaves and two fish, which Jesus multiplied to feed the hungry crowd. After hearing his story, they set off with him to find Jesus, only to get lost in Cana in the middle of a raging storm! But they can't go home just yet... they still have one more miracle story to hear!
