9780801016981: A Visual Guide to Gospel Events: Fascinating Insights into Where They Happened and Why

As the inspired authors of the Bible relayed the story of salvation, they frequently mentioned place names that contributed to the story. Yet readers who are separated from the texts by thousands of years and thousands of miles are often unable to fully understand or appreciate those references. In the tradition of the well-received A Visual Guide to Bible Events, authors James C. Martin, John A. Beck, and David G. Hansen offer this new resource focusing on the Gospel narratives.

This beautiful, full-color book is filled with photographs, maps, and easy-to-read explanations. The engaging writing style makes this resource perfect for anyone--student, scholar, pastor, or layperson--who wants to understand the events recorded in the Gospels in a deeper way.

From the Back Cover:

Discover the fascinating connections between Gospel events and their locations

Why was Jesus baptized in the Jordan River? Where did Jesus heal people? Where did he choose to reveal his authority, and why? What is the significance of the locations where he told parables or performed miracles? Where did Jesus choose to interact with Gentiles? Why are the places of his crucifixion, burial, and resurrection important?

A Visual Guide to Gospel Events reveals the fascinating connections between the events recorded in the Gospels and where those events took place. This beautiful, full-color book includes hundreds of photographs and maps to bring to life the world in which Jesus lived. The engaging writing style makes this resource perfect for anyone--student, scholar, pastor, or layperson--who wants to understand Gospel events in a deeper way.
