Dear Friends of TruthBook,
During the next few weeks, two thousand years ago, Jesus appeared in his morontia body 19 separate times to over 1000 people. The two paintings in this email are part of the new Jesusonian art collection and painted by the great Biblical artist Harold Copping. These paintings were created in water color and used in illustrated Bibles at the turn of the 19th century. Both paintings represent Copping’s idea of how the resurrected Master looked.
His words to the 1000 people who witnessed his appearances still apply today. He sends his Spirit of Truth to guide us to him and the Father in heaven. He also commanded his followers to live a selfless life of loving devotion.
Celebrating the resurrected Master Son of Nebadon,
