This novella, entitled 'Seasoned', explores the significance of projecting the omniscient point of view as a person. Its purpose is to show that there has been a reticence among authors to explore the inner consciousness of arguably the most controversial being humans adore or fear--God. Throughout the project, there has been the emphasis that the power of knowing all thoughts and intents of characters must be attributed to His divine nature. This novella demonstrates that the omniscient narrator may be imbued with a will and emotions. This temperament of the narrator is shown as guiding the development of the plot. The study interrogates the presumption of projecting the omniscient point of view as an anonymous force behind prose narration. The novella is based on concepts of narration theorized from the analysis of the novel and novella. It is also based on philosop~ical, sociological and theological concepts. All these concepts have been employed to underscore the powers which prose has in exploring the unseen reality to the existence of humanity. The novella projects a dramatic development of reciprocated affections and contemplation of each other between the person behind the omniscient narration and the protagonist. The project develops the narrator as the Biblical Jesus but it shows Him as well versed in the contemporary nuances of language and attitudes.
