The Life And Teachings Of Jesus Christ

A Harmony Of The Four Gospels (compiled from the EHV)

Experience the inspired histories from the gospels carefully brought together into one beautiful account of Jesus, the Son of God.

The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ weaves the events of the Savior's life and the words of his teachings from the gospels into a single narrative. As you read, you will explore the announcement of his birth, the Sermon on the Mount, his crucifixion, his resurrection, and his ascension, all in chronological order.

Using the Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV) translation, no words have been added or changed to construct this harmony of the gospels. Only God's Word is recorded here.

Pick up The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, and learn more about what the four gospel accounts together present about your Savior.
