  • The four gospels

    1. 1.  MATTHEW M A R K L U K E J O H N
    2. 2. The Gospel of Matthew  AUTHOR, Matthew (also called LEVI), one of the twelve apostles, Mk.2:14. Undoubtedly a Jew who was a publican, or Roman tax collector,ch.10:3. When called by Jesus he left all and followed him.  TO WHOM ADDRESSED – primarily to the Jews.  KEY WORDS. Fulfilled and the word Kingdom.  APPARENT PURPOSE. To show that Jesus of Nazareth was the Kingly Messiah of Jewish prophecy.
    3. 3. Summary of the book of Matthew:  All four gospels tell about the life of Jesus from the time before his birth to the time after his death and resurrection. Yet each Gospel has a distinct emphasis. It is like hearing the same story from four different points of view. Each writer is remembering and focusing on different aspects of who Jesus is and what he came to do.  Matthew’s emphasis – Jesus as the fulfilment of Old Testament prophesy. Matthew also emphasizes Jesus as King as prophesied Messiah and descendant from David’s throne.
    4. 4. The Gospel of Mark  AUTHOR, Mark, the son of Mary of Jerusalem.  referred to as John Mark, in Ac.12:25.  A relative of Barnabas.  Associated with Paul and Barnabas on their First Missionary Journey.  MAIN THEME, “ Christ, the Tireless Servant of God and Man.”  KEY WORD, “ Straightway”, indicating immediate action, repeated throughout the entire book.
    5. 5. Summary of the book of Mark:  Mark is about who Jesus is. At first Jesus is more secretive about who he is because he doesn’t want to fulfil the wrongly directed hopes of who the Messiah was supposed to be and what he was supposed to do. In the first half of Mark (1-8) It is not uncommon in Mark for Jesus to tell people to keep who he is a secret. Once Peter confesses Christ in Mark 8 Jesus speaks much more freely about who he is and what he came to do. Like Matthew, Mark ends with Jesus commissioning his disciples to spread the Gospel all over the world.  Mark’s emphasis – Jesus as Redeemer
    6. 6. The Gospel of Luke  WRITER. Luke, the beloved physician.  TO WHOM ADDRESSED. To Theophilus, an unknown person.  PURPOSE. To give a connected and orderly narrative of the life of Christ as seen by the eye witnesses.  The Biography of Christ is more complete in Luke than in either of the other gospels.
    7. 7. Summary of the book of Luke:  Luke and Acts are both written by Luke and tell the story of Christianity from the birth of Jesus through the growth of the early church. There are many teachings and miracles in Luke that points us right to the heart of God and just how compassionate he is toward mankind.  Luke’s emphasis – Jesus as compassionate and uplifter of the oppressed.
    8. 8. The Gospel of John  WRITER, The Apostle John  He was the son of Zebedee and Salome and brother of James.  MAIN PURPOSE, To inspire faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God.  KEY VERSE:ch.20:31, “ But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
    9. 9. Summary of the book of John:  The Gospel of John tells the story of the life and ministry of Jesus through an insider point of view. Matthew was a disciple of Jesus but not in his “inner circle” like Peter, James and John were. Luke and John were not part of Jesus’ 12 disciples. So John holds a special place in teaching us about God and Christ as an “insider.” One things you will notice in John are a lot of double meanings that often leave people confused (being born again is one example from John 3). Like the other three Gospels, John shows Jesus on his way to a cross. Like the other Gospels Jesus defeats death through his resurrection and shows us that there is hope beyond the grave.  John’s emphasis – Jesus as the Son of God and his unique relationship with His Father.
