Item description for Jesus the Authorized Biography: The Eyewitness Accounts by Those Who Personally Knew Him by Gary Wharton...
Overview Jesus Christ is the single most important and influential person in history. Here is a detailed synthesis of the four gospels, along with comments from the Apostle Paul, taken entirely from the scriptures. Since the Holy Spirit inspired every word of the original texts, this story of Jesus can be called His "authorized" biography. Beginning with the announcement of the birth of John the Baptist and continuing through the Ascension and later New Testament visions of Christ, Gary C. Wharton blends together different translations of the Bible to form one narrative, word-for-word, as the authorized biography of Jesus. Only where there is redundancy or some clari. cation is required have modifications to the original text been made. * Contemporary language is used throughout. * Poetry, prose, and prophecy are presented in open verse for clarity and beauty. * The very words of Jesus and the voice of God are emphasized in bold print. * Relevant Old Testament prophecies are included to demonstrate the absolute marvel of this miraculous account. * Along with a very readable narrative, several reference and index sections make this book excellent for daily Bible reading, or to keep handy as a reference guide to the life of Christ.

Turns directly to the gospels to portray the life, words, teachings, experiences, and death of Jesus Christ Aug 13, 2005
Compiled with explanatory text by a graduate from the Moody Bible Institute with scholarship in pastoral studies, Jesus: The Authorized Biography turns directly to the gospels to portray the life, words, teachings, experiences, and death of Jesus Christ. Sections offer simplification, clarification, and context for the Biblical text in contemporary language, but Jesus: The Authorized Biography earns its seemingly audacious subtitle by faithfully reproducing the New Testament texts (in English translation, of course - different translations of the Bible have been fused together to create a smoother holistic narrative) that speak directly of Jesus' life. The words of Jesus and God in particular are emphasized in bold print. A highly readable narrative, as accessible to lay readers as to Christians and theologians, that gives readers of all faiths a better understanding of who Jesus was and what he strived for.
