Angels of Judas
iUniverse, 2005 - 248 Seiten
While heavily sedated in a South African hospital, a retired bishop dreams of his father who tell him: "I am here to tell you Jason that you have been chosen in this 2041 year of our Lord as the one to reveal the truth encrypted in the Eye of the Messiah, with its thirteen significant elements, as it was written in the secret scroll of Isaiah. The truth will be revealed in 13 dreams involving 13 objects." Jason is attended to by the Matron Larne, who is a part-time hooker, and a male nurse Paul who is gay. One of Larne's clients, Myaso, is the son of a witchdoctor. Next to Jason's room is a patient Abraam, who is reading his Ph.D. in religious studies. As Jason's dreams unfold, Isabel, who is ostracized from her hometown where she lived with her sister Mary, because she committed adultery, discovers the Eye of the Messiah in a grotto. The miracles of the Master, son of Mary and Joseph, are explained using natural phenomena, while four mischievous angels control the destiny of the soul of mankind. Judas convinces a soldier to become a hooker and he falls in love with one of the servants of the Master. An oracle, whose prophetic words are whistled, is a hermaphrodite with a grotesque difference. A vision of the witchdoctor, a dream of Paul's lover who is a Hindu devotee, and the thirteen dreams help Paul, Myaso and Abraam to unveil the shocking truth hidden within the Eye of the Messiah.
