The Life and Teachings
This book is a restatement of the life and teachings of Jesus as recorded in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Like an earlier effort by Thomas Jefferson, who produced The Jefferson Bible in the early 1800's, its purpose is to distill from the Scriptures only those verses truly portraying the life and teachings of Jesus. Each major event in his life is treated individually, and then arranged in chronological order. Thus, it presents the story of Jesus as it actually took place, from birth through death and resurrection. This format promotes a better understanding of Jesus' real life and original gospel of the kingdom. Helpful explanatory notes are generously supplied. An exhaustive index is included so that readers can easily find what Jesus said concerning any topic. It also provides a listing of Jesus' parables, miracles, and teachings that outline his philosophy of living. This is a Jesus Study Bible.
