What Jesus Was Like By One Who Knew Him, The Gospel of Bartholomew, written by Robert Stephson, is a fictional account of the Works of Jesus as seen by the Disciple Bartholomew. The unique approach the author has taken is to write the story in a modified King James language mixed with his own creation of language that allows the reader to feel the atmosphere and reality of ancient times. The result is a poetic flow of words throughout which adds much color and life.
Throughout the story the reader is given a unique description of Jesus's physical attributes. It's clear that Robert Stephson put his whole heart and mind into his descriptions of Jesus, to give a detailed and realistic experience. He imparts his love for Jesus and conveys His demeanor in a most inspired way. Although Robert Stephon's physical description did not match the vision I hold in my heart of Jesus, I have to say that just by making the comparison between the two I felt a warmness inside as I went over my ideals of Jesus and what he looks like to me.
The Apostle Bartholomew gives his account of Jesus' many acts that were not written in the Bible, but of course, might have happened. Robert gives this infrequently mentioned disciple more of a voice that shares many impressions; from Jesus' acts of kindness to discussions of faith and love. Each account is totally believable and profound.
What Jesus Was Like By One Who Knew Him, The Gospel of Bartholomew takes us from Jesus' ministry to His crucifixion and resurrection. With sincerity and grace, the author shows his readers a version of the life of Jesus that gave him hope and peace in his life during a most difficult period of illness. It's a part of his book's purpose to share with his readers the comfort and knowledge that Jesus is real and all things are possible in His Name.
