Release Date: April 30, 2015
Have you ever wondered when and where Jesus was after the calling of His first four apostles? And which of the four Gospel writers wrote about the events and which didn’t?
The seven seasons between the calling of Peter, Andrew, James and John and Jesus’ Transfiguration (where three of those original four were present) is filled with amazing events–healing of all who come to Jesus, the Baptist’s disciples question Jesus, Sermon on the Mount, widow of Nain’s son raised, Feeding of 5,000 Men, trip to the Mediterranean Coast, to name a few–events that touch our lives today as surely as they did the people at that time who physically, with their robes billowing in the wind and with the sun on their faces, followed Him. But because these events didn’t occur at the beginning of Jesus’ Incarnate life (the Christmas story) or at the end (the Easter story) they are often “lost” or “misplaced somewhere in the “middle.”
This timeline book takes the writings of the four Gospels and puts all these events in an easy-to-read order. In 181 Scenes, using all the parallel Gospel verses, these seven seasons in Jesus life are put into context. They don’t just say, but show, how we are to live a worry free life, how to strengthen our faith through prayer and belief in Him, and how to live life as God meant for humans to live it–victoriously.
The battle is won. In “Following Jesus: In 181 Scenes” experience “firsthand” some of the steps Jesus took during these seven seasons to win it.

Big Thanks to Karis Bentley Publishing for sending me a copy of this book!!
AND as always, big thanks to you for popping by to see what I was rambling on about. LOL
Hope you have a great week.
Just a reminder, I usually post pics of the books I get right as I get them on to my facebook page and my instagram so make sure to click over and LIKE the page and/or follow my gram – then you’ll see what books I get as I get them instead of waiting till I do a “book haul” video. I’ll still do haul videos every couple of weeks, too. So… yeah. All righty then.
