Item description for Parables and Miracles of Jesus by Mary Hoffman & Jackie Morris...
Overview Retells eight parables told by Jesus and describes the stories of Jesus' miracles, including when he turned water into wine at a wedding and raised Lazarus from the dead.
This handy edition collects Parables and Miracles of Jesus, previously available only as separate books. Mary Hoffman retells in clear, colloquial prose eight parables (including the lost sheep and the rich man's feast) and nine miracles from the New Testament (curing the ill raising the dead, among others). Hoffman shortens and simplifies these stories for young readers without compromising their integrity. Scriptural citations are provided, along with brief notes about the retellings. Accompanying the text, Jackie Morris's brilliantly expressive illustrations transport readers to the time when and places where Jesus walked the Earth.
