Short Summary

This story is a Christian/Jewish fictional story of Jonathon Bodnar, a thirty-one year old truck driver who was raised in Jewish Orthodoxy but becomes aligned with a group of Jewish Christians known today as “Messianics. He time travels back to 30 Ad to see Jesus.


After running afoul of High Priest Chiapas, John is jailed on a desolate island. This book could be very controversial as, in the end, I project it is this John who wrote the Book of Revelation.

Development Pitch

This story is a Christian/Jewish fictional story of Jonathon Bodnar, a thirty-one year old truck driver who was raised in Jewish Orthodoxy but becomes aligned with a group of Jewish Christians known today as “Messianics.” After winning the Powerball and becoming very wealthy, he spends all he owns to travel back in time to 30 Ad and walk with and listen to Jesus’ ministry firsthand. His trip is arranged by a lofty figure known only to him as Rafael. Along the way he meets Jesus and all the disciples and is allowed to travel with Him. Many of Jesus’ teachings and miracles are exemplified in Jonathon’s life, and he is simply known as John the Pauper. John falls in love and marries a woman from Canaan. At the wedding reception John runs out of wine and Jesus steps in to save the day. This book could be very controversial as, in the end, I project it is this John who wrote the Book of Revelation. I’ve also made Mary the Magdalene a central part of the whole story. I’ve always believed she was a much maligned woman and her role has been downsized for whatever reason. I’ve always believed she was a trusted companion who fully understood what Jesus was teaching when her male counterparts did not.

About The Author

Tom Rinkes is a sixty-eight-year old professional truck driver who was forced into early retirement in 2010 for a heart condition. Since then he has taken up writing as a hobby and has self-published two novels himself being HoloBall using his name and Time Warped Travelers under his certified pen name of Robert Westfall, and that’s a long story in itself. He’s also been officially published by Running Wild Press, Los Angeles, for his Civil War/ Time Travel novella entitled Time To Quit. He lives in the small hamlet of Farmington, Ohio, a quaint community where, when the neighbors cats or dogs, wonder onto the highway, they’re given the right of way. He’s been married to the same lovely redhead for forty-nine years and they have two grown children and two teenage grandchildren.
