Crossroads in Jerusalem
by Elizabeth Raum
Crossroads in Jerusalem lets you choose your journey through the eyes of a boy of Jerusalem, a servant girl, or a lawyer’s assistant. As you follow Jesus and His disciples, you will see the power of His ministry throughout Jerusalem. Every choice you make will change the story. When one journey ends, go back to the crossroads and find a new path.
