This expanded retelling of the life of Jesus includes all the details from the Gospels in chronological order, the geopolitical scene, the historical and cultural settings, and the likely emotions and motives of those who interacted with Him. Here is a great introduction to the greatest man who ever lived for those who don't know much about Him, and a fascinating read for those who are familiar with the Gospel accounts.

Modern telling, but not so modern that it felt strange for one who grew up with King James. The Gospels are combined to tell Jesus' story, and what I loved were the explanations added along the way.......Aramaic, Jesus' tongue; Jewish traditions; Sabbath traditions; the cities and land; and the further explanations of the Parables, sermons, prayers. Glad I read this!
