This website is promoted by Wycliffe Bijbelvertalers Nederland, to bring the translations of the Word of God close to the people. The pictures are colorful and the author/artist wants to tell the story of Jesus. He selected 34 stories from the Gospels. This is why we love the book “Jesus Messiah” If needed we may find a way to get a translation in your language too through one of our partners.
