Jesus the Christ Index

Well, it’s the new year and I thought I’d start it off with a bang by scratching off one of the things on my to do list. I present to you the “Jesus the Christ Index”.

While in the MTC I read the awesome book Jesus the Christ. Not content to simply read it once and be done with it, I wrote down every citation to verses contained within the four gospels. I then arranged all the citations into a sequential order on a piece of paper (front and back) and laminated it. Here’s a picture of one side:

I’ve now digitized the sheet for easier access and distribution. The PDF file can be downloaded here. Note that the page numbers correspond to the “Missionary Reference Library” edition of the book (pictured above), which can be purchased here.

Here’s an example of how the index is used:

In this case, if you were reading in Matthew, chapter 1, and wanted to see what James Talmage said about the content of verse 19, you would look up page 99 in Jesus the Christ.

If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it. It’s a great way to learn about our Savior and grow closer to Him through an in-depth analysis of His life and teachings. If you’re too cheap to buy a copy, you can read it online for free. :)

I wish you all a happy new year, and hope that we can all make large strides in becoming more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Connor….

    Thank you! This, too, will be of great assistance for me while preparing lessons for Gospel Doctrine. (Psst, I have your Old Testament Study Guide)

    Now, if we read it online, how are we going to use your page numbers I wonder? :) :D

    Dustin,

    A friend of mine has a webapp in the works to do this sort of thing. For now, the archaic paper method will have to suffice. :)

    But of course. I figured you had something in the works. Now how about a PDA version? – Maybe a plugin in YanCEyWare or MarkMyScriptures :D
