Levi is a man beset by problems. While he is wealthy, his riches are always being threatened in
many different ways. As a Tax Collector for the Roman Empire, he is shunned by his fellow Jews
as being ritually impure, and so all Jews want to cheat him out of tax money. Being shunned
deeply wounds Levi, because he had once dreamed of being a Rabbi. He had studied in Jerusalem
under the great teacher, Gamaliel, but was out-shone by a fellow student, whom he hated, Paul.
Compounding things, Levi also knows that the Roman Prefect, Pontius Pilate, is soon to come
to visit him, probably with the intention of charging him much more money to purchase the
tax contracts for the toll booth at Capernaum. His brother, James, who is a fisherman, with
his partner, Peter, keeps nagging him to come and listen to an itinerant preacher, Jesus, whose
message is that the wealthy should give all their riches to the poor. Finally, his wife, Miriam,
who loves to spend money on luxury items and dreams of visiting Rome, probably married him
only for his wealth and may have a roving eye. Meanwhile, there are bandits, led by Iscariot, in
the desert threatening the caravans hauling spices, silk, and other precious luxury goods, which
produce the enormous tolls at Levi's toll booth. When his best friend, a Greek merchant named
Maes, arrives in Capernaum with his huge caravan, which arrival should have solved most of
Levi's problems, everything in Levi's life comes apart. What can put Levi's life together again?
