Manga Bible (新約聖書 Shinyaku Seisho) is a five-volume manga series based on the Christian Bible created under the direction of the non-profit organization Next, a group formed by people from the manga industry. Though first published in English, the books are originally written in Japanese and each volume is illustrated by a Japanese manga artist.[1] Each book is adapted from the Bible by Hidenori Kumai. The first two books were illustrated by manga artist Kozumi Shinozawa, while the remaining three will be illustrated by a different artist. The first book in the series, Manga Messiah was published in 2006 and covered the four gospels of the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Manga Metamorphosis (2008) covers the events in Acts and several of Paul's letters. Manga Mutiny (2008, 2009) begins in Genesis and ends in Exodus. Manga Melech (2010) picks up where Manga Mutiny left off and continues into the reign of David. The fifth, and currently final book, Manga Messengers (2011) addresses events starting with the reign of King Solomon and takes stories from several of the major and minor prophets, and the Book of Esther and concludes with anticipation of a messiah.

the bible is actually pretty good reading. war and people getting stabbed, sometimes while having sex. or on the toilet. mass executions, extinction level events, rouge angels and a talking ass. Lot's daughters getting him piss drunk to have sex with him, twice. jesus going around doing magic and shit. barnabas wanting to roast innkeepers. abraham marrying his half sister. and having women on the side, and the wife was okay with it. (hell yeah). sex crazed crowds wanting to butt fuck angels (that didnt last long, lol). oh yeah, and actual angels having orgy's here on earth. and at the end, the bad guy lives! plot twist! and lets not forget cain marrying his sister....

Well, at first she kind of was. IIRC it was actually her idea. In the end, though, a woman's jealousy...

The Bible is an amazing book. It's full of all the stuff you say. At the same time, it weaves a cohesive narrative, across three continents, more than 20 authors, 2,000 years, and half a dozen empires. The Old Testament chronicles God's formation of a unique people, from which a savior will come. The New Testament chronicles the fulfillment of that promise.

Anyway, a friend of mine read the manga new testament. He said it was pretty good, albeit abridged. As a Christian and a manga fan, I should probably read these.

since Christianity came to Japan (harshly) then yes there should be a manga, I haven't read it but I am not surprised. nothing wrong with having such a thing and I'm glad they did, nothing wrong with getting people to read an interesting book and let them decide on it's word.

We have Manga Messiah here and it's awesome! I've seen the other volumes at bookstores but they're expensive so we couldn't buy them. It's too bad as it was so good!
