Kingstone’s 101 Questions about the Bible and Christianity vol 1 I have to applaud for choosing to put this sort of content in comic fashion.
The comic answers five questions:
Where did Cain get his wife?
What does the Bible say about dinosaurs?
Where was Jesus for the three days between his crucifixion and the resurrection?
What happens to people right after death?
Does the Bible mention aliens or UFOs?
The questions are answered by addressing different views, but in general from a conservative literal reading of the scripture. So the dinosaurs is a young earth creation point of view.
The challenge of using comics in visual teaching is that the conversation bubbles sometimes detract from what you are teaching. In general buying copies of this and giving it to youth, might be the best way to teach.
This comic can be found in Vyrso, which will load it into the logos software here.
The Visualized Bible Art Library is a collection of paintings done in the 1980s. What is unusual about this collection is it spans almost the whole Bible with over 4,500 images. Some of the images are verse by verse representations of the story. Which is especially great when focusing on single stories. The art purposely tries to be family friendly in that there is no gore or blood and the more violent sections of the Bible are just hinted at.
The below low res example image is from 2 Kings 11:1 Queen Athaliah ordering the death of all the heirs to the throne. Here you see the value of the set, it is extremely rare to find an image set that has images for these obscure pieces of the Bible. This particular story in 2 Kings 11 has 16 images illustrating it verse by verse.
The full information on the set is a little scattered. The original images were sold on this Gospel Services and this is still the best place to get info on the set, but they are actually sold now in a series of 10 volumes by Glad Tidings Publishing
The Kingstone Bible is an amazing piece of Christian art for the visual teacher, because it contains so many pieces of scripture that for otherwise there are no pictures.
For instance, who else fully illustrates Nahum and Habakkuk, not many, but you find it in the Kingstone Bible. The Kingstone Bible is actually more complete in this sense than the “Action Bible” it’s chief competitor.
