Announcing: The Illustrated Great Jesus Stories, Expanded and Improved.
We here at Truthbook.com are happy to announce one of our newest additions to the Truthbook.com site - Great Jesus Stories. You may recall a similar announcement awhile back, but since that time, Great Jesus Stories has been enlarged and expanded - and all of the images have been either improved or replaced. The previous version was one-third the size of our newest version, so there are many more stories, and many more beautiful pictures to illustrate them.
So here’s how to find it. Go to the home pagetruthbook.com, click on Jesus and The Urantia Book, and then click on Great Jesus Stories. You’ll see this:

Here’s what you’ll discover: The great Jesus stories illustrated with maps, religious art painted by the Masters, photos of important places, and the words of Jesus red lettered for easy reference.
The Urantia Book narrative of Jesus' life, up until his final week, is distilled into stories - some short, some long - all compelling and worthwhile. We meet Mary, Joseph, all Jesus' siblings, his relatives, associates, apostles, friends - and foes - in vivid detail. Each vignette of Jesus' life stands alone in this project, and his magnificent character and righteousness are a constant inspiration for all of us. Even with our present-day challenges, Jesus' way of dealing with his friends, family and associates provides solid inspiration and direction.
We culled all of the 360-plus stories in Great Jesus Stories from the text of Part IV, and then added beautiful illustrations - largely from the realm of fine art. It is truly amazing that we were able to find so many pictorial examples of events in the Master's life! When no images were found to illustrate a story, expandable maps of the particular area of interest were added, and in some cases, vintage photographs of named cities or Biblical towns were inserted to further give the reader an idea of the way these areas looked before developments of modern times.
These illustrated Great Jesus Stories are an especially good way to introduce children to the life and teachings of Jesus. There are many stories from Jesus' own childhood, unavailable anywhere else. Let the kids know that the Creator of our universe was once a child like them!
p33:2 2:0.2 ...the most enlightening and spiritually edifying of all revelations of the divine nature is to be found in the comprehension of the religious life of Jesus of Nazareth, both before and after his attainment of full consciousness of divinity
p2090:4 196:1.3 Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.
In Great Jesus Stories, Jesus becomes even more accessible, presenting the Master in his very human, yet gloriously divine, life. As magnificent as Jesus is as Creator Son, Michael of Nebadon, Jesus in his humanness is especially appealing to all of us. He is so refreshingly normal and grounded - so ideally human. And this is an aspect of Jesus that is beautifully portrayed in The Urantia Book, and unmatched anywhere. We are so very fortunate to have this Revelation of the Master's life, and we hope you will enjoy this unique presentation of his stories as stand-alone examples of the ideal human life. As hard as it was, as sad as it was at times, in all instances, Jesus shows the way, lights the path for humanity, now and always.
