Hey, Friends. Here is another effort, the first of a series. Please read below.
Stories are all around. They give us knowledge and they fire our imagination. Stories are amazing. They tell us about places near or far and make them seem so real to us that we experience the sights, sounds, and smells. Stories are powerful. They shape what we believe and how we behave. Stories make us what we are.
Some of the most powerful stories are those about Jesus, who said and did amazing things. These stories teach about love and forgiveness, about sacrifice and redemption, and about faith and commitment. These stories bring hope. And although they are over two thousand years old, these stories are just as powerful today.
These pages tell just some of the stories of Jesus as presented in the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Luke, and the Gospel of John. Each story includes references to the Scripture passages on which the story is based. And many stories include notes, reference glossary terms, and maps, all intended to add clarity and give perspective. It is our hope that these stories of Jesus will excite the reader and encourage them to know more.
