THE book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
This book compiles the complete sayings of Jesus Christ from the four gospels of St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, and St. John, as given in the King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition, commonly known as the King James Version.
Like the Jefferson Bible, The Complete Sayings of Jesus Christ is an attempt to edit the four gospels into a consistent account, in this case focusing on the words of Jesus. Many readers arrive at the end of the New Testament with but a hazy picture of Christ and a sketchy outline of the times. This book places all of Jesus' saying in chronological order, stripping away the context that was provided by those who were not Jesus thus revealing a new context.
Christ Sutras is a rare and unique work that masterfully weaves all the sayings we have of Jesus Christ into forty-two powerful, poetic topical sermons. Containing only the words of Jesus, Christ Sutras illuminates the deeper meaning of the sayings of Jesus found in the Bible, and also brings to light the secret sayings of Jesus found in twenty gospels that were left out of the New Testament. The words of Jesus found in these ancient, little-known gospels, including those discovered at Nag Hammadi in 1945, have been suppressed and hidden over the millennia, yet turn out to be the gospels that speak most directly to Jesus’ invitation to follow me. Contained within theses pages are some of the most profound pointers to Truth ever voiced. Never before have the sayings of Jesus been presented in such an intimate, immediate, and revelatory way.It is an extraordinary journey to arrive at a place you have known all your life and see it for the first time. This is the experience of reading Christ Sutras—ancient words you have heard since childhood expand and resonate with fresh, overpowering meaning, touching the deepest part of who you are. There is nothing new in this book, and yet it will change your life.
The Complete Words of Christ is the King James Version of all Christ’s sayings from the New Testament. This inspiring new book is not intended to be a replacement for the Bible, but rather a ready companion for when the healing words of Christ are most needed.
In 1804 Thomas Jefferson decided to study the gospels to see if he could distill the essence of Jesus' teachings into a concise book that could be quickly read and easily understood. The Jefferson Bible is the result, offering valuable insights into the teachings of Jesus Christ and into the mind and beliefs of Thomas Jefferson. Like the Jefferson Bible, The Complete Sayings of Jesus Christ is an attempt to edit the four gospels into a consistent account, in this case focusing on the words of Jesus. Many readers arrive at the end of the New Testament with but a hazy picture of Christ and a sketchy outline of the times. This book places all of Jesus' saying in chronological order, stripping away the context that was provided by those who were not Jesus thus revealing a new context.
The Nag Hammadi Scriptures, edited by Marvin Meyer, is the most complete, up-to-date, one-volume, English-language edition of the renowned library of Gnostic manuscripts discovered in Egypt in 1945, which rivaled the Dead Sea Scrolls find in significance. It includes the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Mary, and the recently discovered Gospel of Judas, as well as other Gnostic gospels and sacred texts. This volume also includes introductory essays, notes, tables, glossary, index, etc. to help the reader understand the context and contemporary significance of these texts which have shed new light on early Christianity and ancient thought. The compilation of ancient manuscripts that constitute The Nag Hammadi Scriptures is a discovery that challenges everything we thought we knew about the early Christian church, ancient Judaism, and Greco-Roman religions.
Introduction by N.V. Peale, D.D. Edited by Rev. J. Warren
What if you could encounter the words of Jesus on their own, lifted up from the surrounding narratives and presented in their full power and mystery? That’s the question Phyllis Tickle—one of America’s most beloved writers on Christian spirituality—asked when she set out to write what she calls a “Sayings gospel.” In The Words of Jesus Tickle has compiled and arranged all the sayings of Jesus from the first four books of the New Testament and the first chapter of the Book of Acts in a way that creates an entirely new kind of encounter with the texts. And she has accompanied those sayings with her own personal reflections and commentaries not just on the words themselves but on the One who spoke them.
