Contents^^^Introduction ^Matthew^John p. 101^
-Publisher

In these pages, Clarence Jordan brings to fresh life some of the best-loved stories from these two familiar gospels. Here is Matthew's telling of the birth of Jesus, and John's lovely hymn to the Word made flesh. Here is the story of the wedding in Cana, and the parable of the Sower. With flashing insight, the Beatitudes are rephrased; and the story of the woman taken in adultery is retold with compassion and human warmth. Jesus' indignaiton crackles anew as he exposes he hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharasees. The Temple is cleansed, and the serene confidence of "God so loved...that he gave..." is brought home with magnificent assurance.^^This volume continues the same clear realism, and the same earthy relevance that readers of Clarence Jordan's earlier translations of the Scriptures have come to admire and appeciate.^^Included are the Gospel of Matthew (except for the "begat" verses), and the first eight chapters of the Gospel of John. These are the last of the biblical translations of Clarence Jordan. They were before him when he died at his desk late in 1969.
