Publisher's Summary

A Novel of Christ’s Victory Over the Powers

The story of Christ like you’ve never heard it before.    

Told through the eyes of the two thieves on the cross and the spiritual warfare hidden from mortal men but seen by Mary Magdalene.   

It starts with the temptation in the desert by Satan and ends with Christ’s descent into Hades, his resurrection and his ascension.   

What happened to Jesus when he died? What did he do in Hades those three days? Who were the train of captives in his ascension? Now, you’ll find out.   

The story of Jesus Christ is told in the context of the Biblical motif of Messiah taking back the inheritance of the nations from the principalities and powers.   

When it comes to spiritual warfare, Jesus was no pacifist.   

Jesus Triumphant is the eighth book of the series Chronicles of the Nephilim, a biblical epic story of the fallen angelic Watchers and their offspring, the Nephilim giants of Genesis 6.   

Written by respected Christian and best-selling Biblical author, Brian Godawa.   

Learn about the historical and biblical research behind the novel

Author Godawa shares an appendix that explores the Biblical theology of Christ’s descent into Hades, as well as the true nature of demons, the binding of spirits, the Gates of Hades and how it connects with Mount Hermon. You will never read the Gospels the same again.      

On the age appropriateness of the novels

This Biblical Fiction series is rated PG-13, appropriate for mature teens and above, similar to the Bible and The Lord of the Rings.

A Must Read for All Christians

What did you love best about Jesus Triumphant?

It is a dramatic version of the greatest story ever told!

What other book might you compare Jesus Triumphant to and why?

Similar to the Third Heaven Series, Birth of a God, also a great book.

Have you listened to any of Brian Godawa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

ALL OF THEM. They are all TERRIFIC!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not sure.

Any additional comments?

As a researcher of biblical texts and a fiction author, I could hardly wait for each of these books in the nephilim series. The story is not fiction, only some portions left out of history and scripture were added to connect the dots. His depiction of the war of the seed is a vital topic for all Christians to understand. This story starts in the third Chapter of Genesis, with the first prophecy we see coming from the mouth of God when he promises to put enmity between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. The bible as we know it today will not make much sense (when linking all books together as a complete picture), unless you understand how that very prophecy unfolds through the passage of almost six thousand years. Most Western Christians are sadly ignorant about the war of the seed and most historical accounts that support the bible as we know it today. Brian Godawa brings the scriptures to life. His books are not just fiction but a great way to help others understand just how far Yeshua would go to save his own creation from destruction. I cannot wait for other books in this series!

Great last part, wish there were more

I was wondering how the author would incorporate the story of Jesus Christ himself into his fantasy series about the Nephilim. Well, now I know: very well!
I love the through line between all 8 novels, where the nephilim we get to know in the first parts keep returning in the other parts, often taking different shapes and names, but to the reader it's clear it's them. I like the author's take on the possibility that this is how things happened. Of course they are all novels, thus fantasy, but still the author's ideas made me think. And I love that about a good novel: it has a great story, lots of action, romance and even sex, yet it makes you think about deeper meanings.

If you made it to part 8 I'm going to assume you liked the first 7, just like me. So of course I recommend this novel, and the entire series.

Great Book

Exciting conclusion to an amazing series of books. The authors ability to weave fiction and Biblical fact into a plausible story is a gift. Highly recommend this book. On a side note reading these in order really helps.

Amazing!

There is no other narrative that so describes and explains the history and mystery of Jesus as specifically as this one. Whether you're a Christian or not, you will find this book mystifying but in an honest and beautiful way. Brian Godawa and his team are great at what they do. I hope he never stops making books and never strays from biblical and theological truth.

I loved it!

I feel like the Mary magdiline part was misconstrued and doesn't match the written Word.

Creative yet strict & not changing bible scripture

A great creative story as far as what could have happen I'm between scriptures. Story line keeps you on the tip of your seat wondering what's next and wanting to dig into your bible afterwards to research and explore God's Word in a new light. Well done.

amazing truths!!!

The things written in this book arenot even spoken nor preached in any churches ,amazing truths and great performance from the beloved author unveiling things that are being kept in the fog and in the dark by the authorities and by the principalities that are even within the church system, unfortunately, but there are few awesome resources for those that are seeking truth. ;and the truth will set us free. God bless Brian G.for his heart and hard work to bring all these truths on the table!:):)Oh Yeah! !

Excellent Story

I really loved the story and how all of the previous books in the series tied in. I found that this was an emotional experience that brought both joy and tears while listening. I really look forward to the next series.
