The Jesus Deck is made for playing card games, it has four suits, corresponding to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and two jokers. The artwork is somewhat unfocused and reminiscent of Bible quote posters at Sunday School.


Consisting of 52 cards, and two jokers, the cards were originally designed to educate children about the Bible. Set in four suits, named after the Gospel writers Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, each card has a scripture verse on it, and depicts a scene from the Bible, in vibrant colour and classically ‘1970s’ style.

But the cards found a second use, as a useful and engaging tool to talk about Jesus in a way which relates to the kind of people who go to MBS events for things like Tarot readings.
