Jesus in His Own Words


B&H 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


What if Jesus were to tell you in the first person about his time on earth?

Veteran Bible translator Robert H. Mounce combines the gospel narratives into one story of Jesus’ life and ministry retold by Jesus himself. This contemporary style brings the meaning of the original text closer to modern readers. Mounce’s conversational interpretation of the Gospels allows the reader to be there during Christ’s birth and boyhood, at his baptism by John the Baptist, on the hillside when he spoke about the kingdom, and amidst the miracle workings. This approach makes the words fresh to longtime believers and inviting to those hearing the story for the first time. Complementing the text is a full index of people, places, verse units, basic themes, and paragraph headings.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
