Item description for A Harmony of the Words and Works of Jesus Christ, a by J. Dwight Pentecost...
Overview This is a harmony of the Gospels giving the text of one, two, three, or four of the Gospels (depending on how many describe any one episode) on the same page. Though it stands on its own as a valuable resource, the book is also a companion volume to "The Words and Works of Jesus Christ."
Publishers Description The goal of this volume is to help you better know Jesus by getting a clearer picture of him through the four Gospels -- the books that directly depict his life, his ministry, and his heart. Scripture is set with Scripture in chronological order, revealing the harmony of the biblical accounts and bringing the person of Jesus into greater focus. Featuring harmonized Bible texts from the New International Version, this book first introduces and then follows the identical outline of the life of Christ used in The Words and Works of Jesus Christ by J. Dwight Pentecost. This simple, logical presentation of the complete parallel text with the outline greatly simplifies your study of Christ's life. A Harmony of the Words and Works of Jesus Christ is ideal for use with The Words and Works of Jesus Christ and makes an outstanding parallel Scripture text for any study of the Gospels or the life of Christ.

Harmonizing The Stories Of Jesus' Life Jun 8, 2000
Dr. Dwight Pentecost, Professor Emeritus at Dallas Theological Seminary, has taken the sayings of Jesus Christ as well as the life of Jesus as recorded in the four Gospels and arranges both stories and sayings in a chronological order. Anyone reading the four Gospels without understanding the viewpoints and style of the writers (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) can come away with a somewhat confused record of the life of Jesus. Dr. Pentecost meticulously compares verse to verse in each Gospel, arranging them in the sequence in which they occur historically, and provides a column-by-column comparison so that the reader is able to see at a glance how each Gospel treats a particular segment of Jesus' life. The first three Gospels (caled the Synoptic Gospels) offer a steady parallel in telling the story of Jesus' work through Judea, Galilee and Samaria. John's Gospel contains material that is not covered by the first three (including the raising of Lazarus) but the four Gospels share much information. Dr. Pentecost approaches the Scriptures from the conservative viewpoint, from the literal, grammatical, historical view and gives even the most casual reader a very helpful guide to discerning WHEN and WHAT Jesus Christ did what he did and said what he said.
