As in, words about the cross of Christ. It’s my new blog, and Instagram account.
I’ve been using Canva, a great free, graphic design site to create posts with Scripture or song lyrics or some phrase that pops into my head. I’ve created about half a dozen posts so far (the latest design is below). I post my designs on Instagram and on the blog, but write a couple of paragraphs on the blog, so please feel free to check it out and I hope it inspires and encourages you to get to know God more. 🙂
I have yet to watch the ratings record breaking The Bible mini-series, but have it on DVD and plan to get through the 10 episodes throughout the Christmas break. I’m keen to watch it, as it will surely serve to remind me of the epic tales of the Old Testament especially, and the powerful reaction the upstart called Jesus caused.
It has been so successful actually that the creators are releasing a film, edited from the episodes plus deleted scenes that will focus on Jesus. Called Son of God, it premieres in February, and the trailer can be seen below.
Released a month later is Noah, director Darren Aronofsky’s (The Wrestler, Black Swan) film centred on Noah, with Russell Crowe as the desperate and obedient man. Don’t expect it to be extremely biblically accurate, naturally, but it’s sure to be entertaining.
Don’t be put off by the title. This new novel from Top Shelf is actually rather funny and genuine.

Out this month is a one-shot from Bluewater focused on Jesus. There’s a few random preview pages below. The art’s better than I anticipated and the visual interpretation of Satan as a He-Man villain is interesting, but the approach at light humour, I’m unsure of.
THE FAITH SERIES: Jesus CHRIST
Author(s): Don Smith
Artist(s) Jacob Bear
Cover Artist(s): cover by Mike S. Miller
Bluewater Productions has pioneered and popularized the “bio-comic” genre with its series “Female Force” and “Political Power.” Now Bluewater will make history again as it tackles the life of, arguably the most famous person in history, Jesus Christ. The book highlights different aspects of the life of Christ to show that Jesus of Nazareth was more than just a great man in history, but proof of a providential force at work in the universe.
I’ve been writing for Christian e-zine, Sight for about a year now. They have a cool wordle all about Jesus, made up of the most popular words that people use in describing him. Seeing as it’s Easter, here’s a peek at what people are saying lately.
Staying with the theme, here’s a great Easter comic from DC back in the day, by artist Alex Toth. Entitled, Dirty Job it’s only 4 pages long and is definitely worth a read. May your public holiday be about more than getting a sugar high and dreaming of rabbits.
