Portrayed by Deks Nordguist, who has studied the ancient Roman world extensively, Hyam (the temple guard) is on a mission from the evil King Herod to assassinate the child born “King of the Jews.” Though a fictional story, Hyam’s gripping account is based on first-century Israeli history and is grounded in the historical events given in Scripture.
Though serving the king, Hyam wonders if this child could possibly the long-awaited Messiah. Could it be that his potential victim is the Anointed One who would free Israel from Roman bondage and bring a time of everlasting peace and joy?
