Book Review: What Would Jesus Tweet?
The Tweets in This Book are Based on the Actual Words of Jesus
Jesus Was an Incredible Communicator
If Jesus were alive today, how would he get his message out to his followers around the world? While he would undoubtedly prefer to speak personally to as many people as possible, he would also want to reach out to those who might never meet him. In addition, his modern disciples would also want to spread his message to others, much in the same way that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John did when they wrote down his sermons and shared them nearly 2,000 years ago.
In the newly released book, "What Would Jesus Tweet", the words of Jesus, as relayed by his disciples, have been converted into Tweets which could be copied and used to share his message, even with those people who may never pick up a Bible or read the Gospels for themselves.
Bible Verses from the Bible - Converted to Tweets
This book takes most of the words of Jesus from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and converts them into modern Tweets that can be copied and used straight from the book. I think this books is a fabulous tool which will allow its readers to pass on the words of Jesus.
Examples of Tweets Found in this Book
Many of these Tweets, which include references to the original Bible chapters and verses, may surprise even Christians, as well as people who know very little about the Christian faith. They are a wonderful way to spread His Word in a series of short, concise messages.
Samples of the Tweets are:
"Pay the government the taxes due the government; give God that which is His" - #WhatWouldJesusTweet - Matthew 22:17-21"
"It is very hard for those who put their faith in money to enter the Kingdom of God" - #WhatWouldJesusTweet - Mark 10:23"
"When you pray, forgive others; for God may not forgive those who are unforgiving." - #WhatWouldJesusTweet - Mark 11:25-26"
"When you have a feast, invite the poor, the injured, the lame and the blind, and you will be blessed." - #WhatWouldJesusTweet - Luke 14:13-14.
This book contains over 200 Tweets based on the words of Jesus. In it, you will discover many thought-provoking concepts that are ideally suited for Bible Study discussions, too. The book is a quick and easy way to understand the teachings of Christ and share them with others ... through Twitter or whatever other means you prefer.
In fact, if you have a teenager who does not enjoy reading, this is a simple way to pass on the teachings of Christ without overwhelming them by giving them an entire Bible.
One of the benefits of the way these Tweets are composed is that each one contains a reference to the original Bible chapter and verse. In this way, the Tweets may inspire someone to turn to the Bible when they wonder, "Did Jesus really say that?" Some people may be quite surprised at the teachings of Christ!
Parents can even use this book as a way to start conversations with their children about the Christian faith. It separates what Jesus actually said for the things that other people said about him. It is His words ... simple and direct.
This book is a handy tool to use as a way to share your Christian faith.
