The Story of Jesus Retold

HTGCD606The Story of Jesus Retold

Bernard Miles

I was born into a non-conformist family and as a child loved hearing my Grandfather telling me Bible Stories in the language of our native heath – David and Goliath, Noah Cramming the last animals into the all ready full Ark, Jesus walking on the water, the star leading the Wise Men to Bethlehem and Mary and Joseph escaping from Herod’s fury by the long trek into Egypt and so on.
I knew that the stories were mostly about working – class people and their occupations. Adam, a gardener, a group of shepherds minding their sheep, a baby born in a stable amongst farm animals, growing up to become a carpenter and choosing for his followers a group of likely lads, mostly fisherman.
So I set out to retell the story Jesus as I remembered my Grandfather telling it to me in his Hertfordshire speech, the language of his peasant birthplace.
And here it is
