What Books of the Bible Does Jesus Speak In?

The Bible is an incredible book, full of truth and wisdom. It is the direct word of God that speaks to our hearts and contains hidden gems about life and piety. An interesting study is to take a look at the red words of Jesus Christ in the Bible. Surprisingly, Jesus and Paul used the LXX as their main Bible.

This was a translation from Hebrew into Greek, based on the same original and inspired words as the Bible we have today. After Jesus' death on Friday, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate's permission to remove the body. Jesus recognized the entire Old Testament as Scripture, accepted its two main divisions - the Law and the Prophets - and cited fourteen individual books. He also confirmed the authorship of certain disputed parts of the Old Testament, such as Daniel and Isaiah.

Jesus reminded religious rulers of the story of David and his men eating presentation bread when they were hungry. In Matthew, Jesus teaches about the coming of the kingdom of God and rarely about himself (never that he is divine); in John, Jesus teaches almost exclusively about himself, especially his divinity. All these disputed and ridiculed accounts of the Old Testament were confirmed by Jesus as actually happening. Archaeologists say that a box possibly contained the remains of James, brother of Jesus of Nazareth, dating back to 63 BC.

Jesus believed in the creation account of Genesis, which includes Adam and Eve's direct creation. There are more biblical arguments for Luke to be gentile than for him to even write the gospel and follow its historical account attributed to him. The main places for Jesus' ministry were Galilee and Judea, with some activities also carried out in nearby areas such as Perea and Samaria. Chronological comparison between Mark's and John's narratives of Jesus' Passion reveals interesting details.

Jesus came to the Jordan River, where he was baptized by John the Baptist, after which he fasted for forty days and nights in the Judean desert. The Blue Letter Bible ministry and BLB Institute hold on to historic and conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in Scripture's infallibility.
