A Treasury of Wisdom : The Words of Jesus
The words of Jesus of Nazareth continue to amaze, confuse and inspire listeners as much today as when they were first heard 2000 years ago. Here, retold in the words of the King James's Bible, are a selection of the most inspiring and memorable sayings of Jesus, recorded in the gospels of his disciples Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The words are complemented by details from paintings by great artists, celebrated for the universality of their vision, among them Raphael, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Caravaggio and Poussin. The selection of words in this edition ranges from frank, compassionate advice offered to individuals thirsting after truth to devastating reprimands aimed at the hypocritical and blind.
