The intention of this book is to offer Christians the opportunity to quickly read, without commentary, the words uttered by Jesus that were recorded by disciples who claim to have heard them first hand.
There are thousands of Christian religious denominations – all based on one book--because the Bible, whether taken in its Old and New Testament entirety, or just the complete New Testament, contains a tremendous amount of information from which a great number of interpretations can be derived and thus unique religions can be and are created.
Christians are often confused. There are so many popular religions claiming to be the “only true” expression of Christianity. Knowledgeable biblical scholars have differing opinions about the origination or authenticity of the various books that complete the New Testament causing more confusion for Christians.
The one thing that all Christian religions have in common is Jesus. When questions related to one’s faith or how to apply Christian principles arise, the first reference point for a Christian is that of Jesus’ words on the subject.
It’s not always easy to quickly find those words. Scriptures containing third-party accounts of what Jesus said or, in some cases, opinions of what he would have said had he been asked about a particular subject are plentiful and often mistaken as direct quotes from Jesus. This results in Jesus being misquoted on a regular basis.
