A new resource has just become available and is a “must have” for any Bible teacher. The Gospels: Photo Companion to the Bible has thousands of images that illustrate and illuminate nearly every verse in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The photos are already formatted in PowerPoint with insightful commentary from multiple sources. Each slide’s “Notes” contain information on the archaeology, geography, historical and cultural contexts, along with textual insights. Anyone teaching or studying from the Gospels will benefit from this.
To understand the breadth and value of this collection, it’s best to visit the web site and look it over. http://www.bibleplaces.com/gospels-photo-companion-to-the-bible/ Watch the introductory video and download the free sample chapters. The Photo Companion to the Bible is from the same people who created the incredible BiblePlaces photo collection. (17,500+ high-res photos from the Bible Lands with commentary.) I use BiblePlaces photos all the time in my teaching and cannot imagine going without them.
I was fortunate to obtain a preview copy of the Photo Companion collection before the official release. Here is an excerpt from my review to Todd Bolen, one of the creators of this new set:
This new photo collection on the Gospels is stunning. It’s far beyond what I imagined, even with the experience of the full BiblePlaces photo collection. The amount of work and the level of detail defy an easy description.
There is nothing like this resource available for teachers today. I cannot recommend the Gospels Photo Companion to the Bible strongly enough. Take advantage of an affordable introductory price that is good through Monday, August 21st. Check it out now and invest in this valuable resource for your own understanding and teaching.
