Kingstone Bible Vol. I Hardcover
Kingstone Bible Volume 1 is a graphic novel adaptation of the Word of God. It is the first of three volumes. The first volume of the Kingstone Bible covers the time of history before the life of Jesus; many of these Old Testament stories foreshadow Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. In the Garden of Eden, an animal is killed, and the skin is used to cover over the sins of the first humans. (Jesus will later be an eternal sacrifice to cover over the sins of man.) God directs Abraham to offer his son as a sacrifice but at the last moment provides another sacrifice. (With Jesus, He is the sacrifice that God gives on the cross.) Moses leads the people out of Egypt and directs them to cover the doorposts with blood so death will not reach them. (In Jesus, our lives are covered with His blood and eternal death does not reach us.) Moses tells of another great prophet, Jesus, who will come later to Israel.
The Kingstone Bible Volume 1 covers the time of history before Jesus but all leading up to the magnificent story of Jesus. In the first volume of this graphic novel series, we see the epic greatness of creation, the fall of man and the Tower of Babel. We see and learn of a great flood through the story of Noah and the Ark. We learn how God establishes the nation of Israel through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. Moses leads the people of Israel through the Red Sea and to the Promised Land. There is the time of the judges of Israel as well as Ruth and Samuel. King David then rises to power and begins to lead the people of God and the nation of Israel. The nation of Israel is the chosen nation through which Jesus will come.
Volume 1 is the first in a trilogy of graphic novels that seeks to capture the epic greatness of God and the rich goodness of his gracious dealings with mankind.
Kingstone Comics places Scripture references at the bottom of the pages for direct references to the Bible, and we encourage all of our graphic novel readers to read the Bible story for themselves because God has much to teach us.
