One of four books in the ILLUSTRATED BIBLE SUMMARY series, The Life and Teachings of Jesus draws on the four Gospels to provide a single narrative of Jesus’ life and teachings. For the preacher or Bible teacher it serves as a concise summary that can be consulted and readily accessed for preaching and teaching from one of the Gospels or on a topic addressed in Jesus’ teachings. The Life and Teachings of Jesus begins the prologue to John’s Gospel who tells of the Word who was with God and was God. It moves through the announcement of Jesus’ birth to the climactic events of his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension to the Father. The book is colorfully illustrated and uses a number of icons to call attention to recurring features that are helpful in grasping the wonder of this One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
