Raised like sisters, Mariamne and Salome are indulged with riches and learning - a rare thing for females in ancient Jerusalem. But Mariamne has a further gift: an illness has left her with the power of prophecy. After seven years in exile, they return to a Judea, where many now believe John the Baptizer is the messiah. Salome too begins to believe, but Mariamne, now called Magdalene, is drawn to his cousin, Yeshu'a, a man touched by the divine in the same way she was during her days of illness.
