The History of Jesus: The Bible in a Nutshell By William Davis Cover Image


The Bible is a cornucopia of people exhibiting every character trait imaginable. An easy and informative read, there is mystery, intrigue, love, hate, deceit, and jealousy in the journey from Adam in the beginning (Genesis) to the birth of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew. The entire Old Testament is the prelude to the coming of the Messiah, whom God sends to redeem the world from their sins. God uses all sorts of people, evil and good, to accomplish his purpose--that is, to bring all of mankind into a loving relationship with him. There is all manner of sin in the ancestry of Jesus, but Jesus, being God incarnate, is perfect, and He shows us how we should live to be right with God. The New Testament reveals the birth, life and death on the cross, of the Savior and the establishment of his church on earth. While most Bible scholars agree that the Bible is organized according to genre, history, law, poetry, and prophecy, this book makes the case for its organization according to the genealogy of Christ.

From Adam through Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Jews enslaved in Egypt for four hundred years, and Moses, being a type of Christ, leading them out of Egypt to the Promise Land, God giving Moses the Ten Commandments, to David who was guilty of adultery and murder, and the prophets, this book reveals how the Bible's organization follows very closely the genealogy of Jesus. And this genealogy leads to the culmination of the Bible, the birth and life of Jesus Christ, whom God sent to be the propitiation for our sins. This book is God's love letter to us. Every book in both the Old and New Testaments is summarized with the salient points of each so that the reader understands the who, what, when, where, and why of God's love letter to us. A short, simple, and straightforward explanation for the person who, heretofore, has been reluctant to read the Bible through because it seems too difficult to understand. This book's purpose is to encourage people to dig into God's Word and discover God's message of love for them.
