Description of An Innocent Son by Carol Ferguson
Judith was filled with terror, running, hiding. She clutched something precious, but what was she protecting and why? Suddenly there is blood everywhere, on her hands, her clothing, the floor. When their son is brutally killed it sends Judith and Ethan on a lifetime search for answers. This story follows them through their journey of grief, dwindling hope, and then the renewal of dreams as they begin to see Jesus as the Messiah. They are plunged again into a world of hatred and bitterness when Judith discovers he was the cause of their son's death. The crucifixion brings no peace and news about the resurrection adds only confusion. Then curiosity draws them to a noisy crowd and they hear about the Messiah, who came as the Lamb of God. Finally, it all comes clear. Their son died to provide a safety for the infant Messiah. In an unexpected way God gives them a new son and a new hope.
