Through Marisa's trance channeling and Joe's endless questions from the other side, they were able to interview the eight authors of the New Testament and assemble the Bible Speaks series. Marisa and Joe originally combined the authors' accounts into one book. When they reread the book in session with the other side—to make sure that the information was correct, while also seeking additional comments from the authors—Jesus, who frequently interceded throughout the interviews, suggested that they break it up into four books instead. He reminded them that he used to send his disciples out on missions "two by two" and felt that these books would be better received if there were two authors per book.
The intent of these channeled sessions was never to open to Bible and ask the authors what they meant by various passages in their books; instead, it was to get to know the authors. From their numerous sessions, Marisa and Joe were able to discover the uniqueness of the men behind the titles. Because Jesus/Christ monitored all the sessions, they were able to learn not only twenty-first-century lessons from the authors but also new lessons and parables from Christ/Jesus/Yeshua/Emmanuel and the myriad guides, angels, and higher selves of each of the authors, as well as from the higher selves of Joe and Marisa.
In Book V Marisa and Joe extrapolated and assembled as many quotes from Jesus/Yeshua and Christ as possible. Each lesson is then attributable to whichever book in the Bible Speaks series the quote came from. Just like the first four books in the series, this one brings great lessons to all people of faith and those who are curious—seekers. If the listener wishes, he or she may just say, "These may be true, or they may be fiction, but let me see what is in here anyway—I'm curious." Jesus told Marisa and Joe that those who wish to hear will be seekers, the curious. These will be listeners who just don't get religion, who may or may not ever have read the New Testament in its entirety but who want to understand God more. This book does not add to the Bible, nor does it take anything away from it. This book brings enlightenment.
