From the artist who brought you Revelation, here is a graphic novel that shows, scene by scene, how the very pillars of Christianity were constructed.
Firstborn is a beginning, an origin story, and the remarkable starting point for the story of Jesus. Here is a graphic novel that shows, scene by scene, how the very pillars of Christianity were constructed. Firstborn transports readers to the holy land at the dawn of the first century and brings them face-to-face with Mary, Joseph, John the Baptist, the Angel Gabriel, and more. It is a riveting journey through the Gospels that is freshly envisioned, brilliantly arranged, and thrillingly brought to life.
The first adventure in The Last Adam graphic novel series, Firstborn was translated by Father Mark Arey exclusively from ancient Gospel manuscripts and weaves the four Gospels into a single continuous story, of which Firstborn is the opening chapter. In embarking on this journey, readers will find that by pairing ancient verses with original imagery, new life is breathed into the accounts of Jesus’ story as expressed through the gospel writers Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
