This book gives you in pictures the story of Christ drawn from four contemporary life sketches called the Gospels written by his disciples. The Gospels are an important section of the Christian scriptures of the Bible. They are the main source of the teachings of Christ contained in the narrative.They represent wise sayings and practical instruction, episodes describing with compassion the human situation, or exposing wickedness and evil, giving profound lessons on charity and love. The Son of Man, as Jesus Christ liked o call himself, serenely goes through the crowded pages of the Gospels, preaching, healing, comforting, helping, loving, not seeking any power or advantage for himself. His enemies set themselves up against Him and ultimately succeeded in having Him condemned to death on a cross. As he had foretold, He rose again after his death, thus proving that he was the Son of God. His followers passed on their faith in Jesus to other, and thus the Christian Church spread.Whether one is a Christian or not, one cannot fail to be drawn to this man who spoke of goodness with wisdom and power, and brought comfort and peace to men of goodwill.
