Listen to the Bible in One Year (ESV)

Portraits of Jesus is a daily devotional that will take readers on a tour through the fascinating art gallery of the Bible where are displayed three hundred and sixty-five exquisite portraits of our wonderful Saviour. These portraits are a collection of the names, titles, and appellations by which Christ is portrayed in the Bible. Through this inspiring assortment of names and titles, the author has endeavored to focus on all aspects of the life, ministry, and character of Jesus. Each title is full of spiritual, theological, and devotional insights that provide encouragement, inspiration, and assurance in Christ. The inspiration for this daily devotional is from Ellen G. White's timely admonition that "It would be well for us to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point, and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones. As we thus dwell upon His great sacrifice for us, our confidence in Him will be more constant, our love will be quickened, and we shall be more deeply imbued with His spirit."--The Desire of Ages, page. 83.

Portraits of Jesus offers an ideal opportunity to engage in this daily "contemplation of the life of Christ" by focusing on the spiritual and theological significance of the many names and titles of our Redeemer. To help with this daily contemplation, a special Bible text, containing a name or title of Jesus, has been carefully selected for each day of the year. Accompanying the text for each day is an appropriate commentary on the day's title, followed by a relevant quotation from the writings of Ellen G. White and a written meditation prayer.
