Tim Reinhardt

“Jesus’s Brother James” – Dramatic Comedy

In today’s episode, we meet Tim Reinhardt, author of “Jesus’s Brother James.” No, this is not a book about Jesus’s real brother James, but there is a character in the book who is a down-and-out priest who befriends a man who could look the part of Jesus’s Brother James. The priest passes the man off as the Messiah’s brother to another man who has lost the will to live. This leads to a quest by four characters to find meaning in their lives with the help of the mysterious, religious-looking man who speaks only Aramaic.
