Publisher's Summary

Nehemiah, the young son of a Jewish woman, a weaver from Jerusalem, is born and raised among the Jews who didn't return to Jerusalem from the Exile. Educated by Rabbi Kagba, one of the magi present at Jesus' birth thirty years earlier, Nehemiah grows up with the expectation of a soon-coming Messiah. Could the Yeshua of Nazareth, who is walking the earth, reportedly doing miracles, be that Messiah?
When young Nehemiah must travel the long caravan road to Jerusalem, he is charged with an unusual mission - to carry a mysterious object back to the holy city of Jerusalem...an object whose reappearance heralds the Messiah's arrival.
Nehemiah arrives in Jerusalem just as the final events of Jesus' earthly ministry are coming to a climax: The Feast of Dedication, the Triumphal Entry, the last cleansing of the Temple, and culminating at the Last Supper in the Upper Room. Only Nehemiah understands the true sacrifice that is to come as he makes the cup worthy of his Savior.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. An eye-opener and another level of knowledge of Jesus' mission; another level of knowledge of those who loved and served him, and another level of the activities of the times. It's a great book!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nehemiah. Because the Lord was with him his entire life.

Have you listened to any of Tom O'Malley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I've not, but I enjoyed his soothing voice.

If you could rename Take This Cup, what would you call it?

Loved it!

I was transported back in time and space. The rich descriptive passages, which, if I was reading myself, I would have hurried over, painted the scene, and enriched my imagination. The change of voices for the characters was ver well done. The book came alive.
