Description

Guernsey-based artist Joe Smith has produced some vibrant designs featuring stained-glass windows, along with well-known Biblical passages associated with the nativity story, which appear in the gospels of Luke and Matthew and are taken from the King James version of the Bible.

Although there are hundreds of different versions of the Bible, the King James Bible is probably the world's most widely known Bible translation, using early seventeenth-century English. Its majestic style has made it a literary classic, with many of its phrases and expressions often known by heart.
