“Six Miles From Jesus”: a powerful script of finding conclusions and fulfilling purposes in a life of terrible mistakes and unsure decisions. “Six Miles From Jesus” is the creation of published author Jonathan Rishel, a Sunday school teacher who also helps create Vacation Bible School material for his church, Baptist Temple of Franklin. He currently works as an overnight support manager at Walmart. He looks forward to the future plans God has for his life and is excited to see how God will use his writings to reach others for Christ.

Rishel writes, “Uzzi and Ezekiel have spent their entire lives hearing of the promised Messiah. While training at the temple, they hear of a baby born in a manger, who seems to fulfill all the prophecies. The rabbis tell the boys to ignore the rumors, but how can they not check it out? Bethlehem is only six miles away! Will Uzzi and Ezekiel choose to listen to the rabbis or seek out the truth for themselves?

"The choices we make as children can greatly affect our lives. The choices made by these young men will change their lives forever. One will be led toward love and mercy, while the other is driven down a dark path full of hatred and murder. Join these friends on their journey and see the Easter story like never before—through the eyes of the enemies of Christ!
