This bundle includes The Illustrated Life of Jesus and Illustrated Life of Paul, two excellent tools from B&H Publishing.
Each of these works takes you on a fascinating journey that details every event in the lives of Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul, respectively. Hundreds of photographs, illustrations, and reconstructions connect you with the life, times, culture, and lifestyles of the first century in which Jesus and Paul lived.
The Illustrated Life of Jesus is a visual and intellectual feast for anyone looking to understand more about the life, death, and ministry of our Savior. Author Herschel Hobbs weaves together the accounts found in all 4 gospels, tracing the steps Jesus took throughout His life and ministry. Along the way, this illustrated volume shows you the landscapes, vessels, vehicles, coins, fortifications, dwellings, tombs, and much more.
Also included are eye-opening essays on topics and historical figures like: the family of Herod, Caesar Augustus, Bethlehem, Nazareth, John the Baptist, the Passover, a first-century fishing boat, tax collectors, the Mount of Olives, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, and many others. Hobbs gives insight on many questions we all ask, such as: who were the Magi, and where did they come from? How long did Jesus, Mary, and Joseph live in Egypt? Where exactly did Jesus deliver his most famous sermons? What did the surroundings look like then and now?
