First, keep in mind that JUDAS, MY BROTHER is fiction and should be regarded as such. Second, even devout Christians can benefit from the twenty years of research that Yerby conducted before writing the novel: historical and cultural details that are barely alluded to in the Gospels are explained clearly here. Finally, parts of the novel read as a ripping good yarn -- such as Nathan bar-Yeudah's training as a gladiator, his escapades among the dissolute patricians of Rome, and ultimately his complex relationship with Yeshu'a -- Jesus. Yerby draws upon the Shakespearean device of two unrelated characters who are virtually identical twins, thus plunging Nathan into the midst of Jesus' public ministry.
