About The Jesus Bible:
Discover Jesus In Every Book of the Bible
Jesus isn’t just found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His presence can be felt throughout the whole Bible, even in Genesis. The Jesus Bible contains the complete New International Version (NIV) with daily study helps that point to Jesus and show how he fulfilled the prophecies for the Messiah found in the Old Testament. A perfect way to see the overarching narrative of the Bible, The Jesus Bible includes these features:
- Presentation page for personalization and gift giving
- Book introductions explain where Jesus appears in each book of the Bible
- 365 devotions revolve around the “sightings” of Jesus in the Old Testament and his life and teachings in the New Testament
- Application notes to help apply Jesus’ teachings to real life today
- Hundreds of clues highlight the promises/prophesies made about Jesus in the Old Testament and the fulfillments in the New Testament
- Index of the Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in Christ
- List of Jesus’ miracles and parables
- Timeline of Jesus’ life
- Lineage of Jesus
- Concordance to help find key topics, people, and events in the Bible
- Words of Christ in red
When I saw this bible up for review I knew I wanted to get it because it’s a children’s bible. I have to say it’s not like any children’s bible I’ve been used to seeing. First off it’s just like your regular bible, it’s not filled of pictures and shortened stories based on scripture. The bible breakdowns all the different areas of the old and new testament where Jesus is mentioned. The words of Jesus is still in red and it has the main features of any regular bible but this one really highlights all the work of Jesus. Everything is streamlines and so easy to find. This would be great for middle school kids. I wouldn’t give it to younger kids because it would be difficult for them to read and understand. It’s a good bible overall and I would say not just for children either.
You can purchase the bible on Amazon or the Zondervan website.
