Summary Presents brief retellings of the miracles of Jesus Christ, accompanied by paintings by eminent artists from the past and details about each work. Some of the most dramatic moments of the New Testament occur when Jesus quite miraculously is able to take control of the forces of nature, restore sight to the blind, heal the sick, and bring the dead to life. Provocative and mysterious, the miracles of Jesus, and later of his disciples, have served as keen inspiration to many of the greatest artists of all time. In this lavishly illustrated book, thirteen stunning reproductions of Old Master paintings are used to tell the story of New Testament miracles. Each painting is accompanied by an absorbing account of the story depicted, pertinent quotations from the Bible, and an easy-to-read schematic line drawing that explains what is happening in the scene. An illustrated time-line, a brief biography of each artist, and a comprehensive index also are provided. Both engaging and informative, New Testament Miracles is a visually pleasurable retelling of miracle stories from the New Testament, including the healing of the leper, Jesusâ‚‚ calming of the sea, and the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.
