Tor, A Street Boy of Jerusalem (PDF ebook) – Today’s resource is this classic book by Florence Morse Kingsley (who also wrote “Titus, A Comrade of the Cross”). Tor was a poor boy who lived in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus. At the hands of Pilate he receives a wound that leaves him blind. Then one day, Tor hears shouts of ‘Hosanna!’ and Tor is taken to the temple where he meets Jesus. After Jesus heals his blindness, Tor becomes a follower of Christ. When Tor learns that Jesus is going to be betrayed, he tries frantically to save him.
Most of this excellent book takes place during the last week of Jesus life. Tor encounters many people that Scriptures tell us about, including Pilate’s wife, Peter, Judas, etc. This would be a wonderful story to read aloud during this week leading up to Easter.
