REVIEW OF THE JESUS BILBE ARTIST EDITION

 

How thrilled I was when I received this complimentary copy of The Jesus Bible Artist Edition in exchange for an honest review and as a partner of BibleGateway Blogger Grid (#BibleGatewayPartner). I knew I’d be happy. However, I did not know that I would be ecstatic and eager to delve into the richness this study book offers.

I notice there are several editions of The Jesus Bible using various translations. I was given the newest one, The Jesus Bible Artist’s Edition. (https://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Bible-ESV-Leathersoft/dp/0310453097/ref=sr_1).

The first thing I noticed was the soft, colorful, imitation-leather cover. Next, I noticed how the whole Bible shows the central theme: how Jesus is present in the entirety of Scripture—from Genesis to Revelation. Jesus is the Word of God Incarnate. The Forever King.

I liked the layout of the edition. Each book is prefaced with the primary theme. For example, 1 Thessalonians is prefaced, “Jesus: Our source of comfort.”  Also, each book has an article discussing the main concepts in the book supporting the theme and includes historical information to aid understanding as well as a key verse. For example 1 Thessalonians 5:18:

 

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

 

 

The commentary contributors explain the Church of Thessalonica struggled with the seeming delay of the second coming. Concerned by the numbers of martyred believers, they were led astray by false teachings.

 Relating Scripture to our current Christian experience, the expositors explained how Christ’s resurrection gives hope in light of the awaited return of Christ.

“The one who made this promise is faithful, as he has been throughout history,

and he will surely accomplish all that he sets out to do.

In addition to an easy-to-study layout, the commentary is written simply so that even the untrained Bible student will be able to understand the truths within God’s word. Cross-references are not only listed but explained as to how the Scripture section relates to Jesus as the central theme of the Bible.
