CHAPTER 1

When Did Moses Speak About Jesus?

Deuteronomy 18:15; John 1:45; 5:45–46; Luke 24:27


Jesus was the Son of God. But the Jews wanted proof. According to the Law of Moses, Jesus needed a witness to speak on His behalf. So Jesus told the Jews that Moses had written about Him. Fourteen hundred years before Jesus was born, Moses wrote, "The Lord your God will give you a prophet like me. He will be one of your own people. Listen to him."

How was Jesus like Moses? They were both prophets, priests, lawgivers, and leaders of men. They both taught new truths and new commandments. And they both performed miracles. After Philip met Jesus, he found Nathanael and told him, "Remember that Moses wrote in the law about a man who was coming.... We have found him. He is Jesus."


Dear Father, thank You for Jesus! Because those who find Him find peace. Amen.


Jesus and Me ...

There's another way Jesus was like Moses. Moses was called a deliverer. He obeyed God and delivered the Israelites from captivity in Egypt. Jesus was called "Deliverer" too. He delivers you and me from another kind of captivity—that of sin and death. That is why it is so important to find Jesus! Ask Him into your heart today!


Prophets Said Jesus Was the Promised One

Isaiah 9:6; Micah 5:2; Zechariah 12:10; Psalm 22:16–18


Dear Father, I believe the promise. I believe that Jesus is coming again. Help me share that good news with others. Amen.


Prophets were messengers for God. They told about things that would happen in the future. Isaiah was one of the greatest prophets. He lived eight hundred years before Jesus was born. But listen to the words Isaiah wrote about Jesus: "A child will be born to us. God will give a son to us.... His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, Father Who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace."

Through Isaiah, God gave us the wonderful promise of Jesus. But Isaiah wasn't the only prophet who spoke about Jesus. Micah told where He would be born; Zechariah said His side would be pierced; David said He would be crucified.

And they all said that someday the Promised One would come!


Jesus and Me ...

Jesus gave us another promise before leaving the earth and returning to heaven. Did you know that Jesus promised to come a second time? When He came the first time, not everyone got to see Him. But when He comes again, every eye will see Him coming in the clouds!


John the Disciple Said Jesus Was the Word

John 1:1; 14:9; Luke 13:3


The very first verse in the book of John tells us who Jesus is. John calls Him "the Word." Words help us understand things. Words describe things others have not seen, and words can save us from dangerous situations. For example, we shout, "Stop!" to prevent an accident.

John calls Jesus "the Word" because it is Jesus who helps us understand who God is. We haven't seen God, but Jesus tells us about God when He says, "He who has seen me has seen the Father." It is Jesus who tells us about heaven, and it is Jesus who saves us from the dangers of sin. "Change your hearts and lives!" He warns.

Jesus is the walking, talking, living, breathing Word of God.


Dear Father, thank You for Jesus, Your Word made flesh. And thank You for the Bible, Your Word made paper! Amen.


Jesus and Me ...

Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. He was sent to accomplish God's plan. What was God's plan? To save you and me from sin! God's Word was "made flesh" in Jesus. God's Word has also been "made paper." It's called the Bible! Read it every day.

Jesus and Me Bible Storybook 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Fitzysmom More than 1 year ago
I am just tickled pink with this book. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the content is not only age comprehension appropriate but it is attention span appropriate.  Each of the sixty-two stories focus on the life of Christ. One of the interesting things that I noticed was that the stories are told in past tense. I appreciated the note at the beginning of the book from the author to explain this. Mr. Elkins says that he wrote it in past tense because the stories are referring to when Jesus walked upon the earth. He was also clear to point out that "we are blessed to serve a risen Savior who holds the same power today to heal, bless, and forgive as He did two thousand years ago." Each story starts with the Scripture reference and then tells a simplified version of the story. A very short prayer follows that is very sweet and smile worthy. Let me give you an example of one: "Dear Father, thank You for Jesus, Your Word made flesh. And thank You for the Bible, Your Word made paper! Amen." I love that! The last thing for each section is a portion entitled Jesus and Me, and it describes how you (the child) fit into the plan Jesus has in mind. I would recommend this for a short and sweet, yet educational daily reading for you and your preschooler. The lessons are simple but very clearly presented in a way that will help your little one grow in their knowledge of Christ. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
