A Beggar in Capernaum
by Ben Patrick Eden
Welcome to Capernaum, a shimmering city at the edge of Galilee. Raf can show you around. Sure, his legs don’t work and he smells of animal droppings, but for a few coins he’ll point out all the best deals. He can be found near the market, along with a mishmash of beggars. There’s Garon, an ox of a man afflicted with blindness. And Sagi, the short-tempered leper.
