The Acrostic of Jesus
Let’s read the acrostic of Jesus together To help you to love him, so he is your treasure. We’ll read it, rap it, or sing it–it’s fun! Till Jesus comes back and his kingdom has come. He’s the Alpha and Omega, from A to Z; We pray you see from this book, “Jesus came for me!”
The Acrostic of Jesus is fun to read over and over again, and a brilliant tool to help kids gain a greater understanding of Christ. Young readers will learn “Christology”–the study of Jesus. The more we learn about Jesus, the more reasons we have to love him! By giving children an alphabetical list of the names and attributes of Jesus written with a rhyming beat, Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle make The Acrostic of Jesus fun to read and simple to memorize.
Each characteristic, A to Z, weaves together a beautiful picture of who Jesus is and why he came to earth. Using the alphabet to teach about God has a rich history in the Bible, especially in the Psalms and Lamentations. Several of the psalms–notably Psalm 119–begin with letters of the Hebrew alphabet, forming an acrostic that spells out the entire alphabet.
The authors make learning Christology easy and enjoyable. Their book shows Jesus as he is, not “just to know about him more in our brains, but to know him as the God of glory who reigns.” Illustrated by C. S. Fritz, The Acrostic of Jesus is the second in the series, An Acrostic Theology for Kids, introducing children ages five to eleven to systematic theology uniquely on their age level.
