Jesus Story: Everything That Happens in the New Testament in Plain English
I once heard someone say, that in the end, we each must answer this question: "Who do you say Jesus is?" Author Dr. William Marty, Bible Professor at Moody Bible Institute creates an understandable and engaging synopsis of the New Testament account of Jesus and how individuals responded to him (from the four Gospels and Acts). In each chapter, Marty conveys, in narrative and chronological form, Jesus' story, replete with a list of main characters, setting, the main story and a chapter synopsis. You can read straight through, or using the Table of Contents, choose specific stories taken either from the Gospels or Acts. If you're wanting to introduce someone to Jesus or review who He is, the Jesus Story is a perfect choice! 151 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
The story of Jesus is the most remarkable ever told. It's an exciting adventure, a tender love story, and a drama full of danger, betrayal, and the ultimate sacrifice. But sometimes the genealogies, the confusing repetition, and the varying order of events in the Gospels can distract readers from this powerful narrative. Or maybe you've heard the story so many times that it has lost its impact.
Here, Dr. William Marty presents the complete narrative of Jesus in an easy-to-read, chronological account. It's a fascinating retelling of everything from his birth to his ascension--as well as what happened in the church after he left. The Jesus Story is perfect if you want to get to know Jesus better or recapture the amazement of hearing his story for the first time.
