Book 1: Once Upon a Time in Galilee
£8.99 each
+
by John Medcalf and Maggie Organ. A4 paperback book, 92pp; John Medcalf Publications
These graphic novels offer a radical retelling of the gospels, showing a Jesus who is human and often political. They are perfect for classroom and parish work, as well as for personal reading for people of all ages. The work is in nine volumes. In Book 1, Jesus, an odd-job man, leaves his mother in Galilee and goes off in search of his cousin John the Baptiser. As he rubs shoulders with all kinds of people and shares his life with them, we witness Jesus’ growing realisation that he is being called to announce God’s Kingdom, and we see Jesus’ extraordinary power to attract people to himself and to touch their hearts. Book 1 ends with the wedding celebrations at Cana.

Jesus befriends outcasts and teaches about, and acts out, God’s love for the poor, the sick, lepers, prostitutes, drunks, etc. Jesus challenges everyone to do the same as himself, but people find his teaching hard to accept. Even his friends and followers get annoyed with some of his ideas, but Jesus remains firm, patiently teaching them to see the world as God sees it, sometimes through wonderful storytelling.
