The myrrh tree and the corresponding red myrrh gum is very integral to the storyline. Three times in the novel a sign is created either by Mishea or Beggar Boy and placed on a myrrh tree in the Roman Fortress Antonia. It is the belief of the author that there will be lasting memories, possibly 'life-trait' lessons the readers of the novel will dwell upon. Thus, the creation of 'myrrh tree' plaques for retail sale is in consideration. It is the hope of the author that readers will look upon their 'myrrh tree' signs as an encouragment.
