Story of Jesus

Story of Jesus combines the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) plus a few verses from Acts and 1 Corinthians into one story using the text from the World English Bible.

Have you ever read one of the four Gospels wishing that you could somehow read all four of the Gospels together, at the same time? You read one story and you remember that there is more to the story but where is it? Each of the four Gospels give only a part of the picture. So when we read any one of the four Gospels, by itself, we are missing much of the story. We can only get the whole picture when all four Gospels are read together.

The words are color-coded. Each book has its own specific color.

Matthew - Red     Mark - Brown     Luke - Green     John - Blue

Acts - Orange      1 Corinthians - Light Blue

Added words (usually connecting words) - Purple
