Posts Tagged ‘He Is’

bible heartJesus is the thread that holds creation together.  The Bible points out, “in Him we live and move and have our being.” So it comes as no surprise that we can find pictures of our Lord in every book of the Bible.

My recent post of 100 Names of Jesus seemed to strike a chord with many readers.  As a follow up, here is a glimpse of Jesus from each of the 66 books of the Bible.
