Overview of the Gospels (All Nations Leadership Institute)

  1. 1. The Gospels An Overview From Pastor Daryl Cox
  2. 2. • Matthew, Mark and Luke are called synoptic Gospels because their accounts of the life, miracles and teachings of Jesus are similar in content with exception to variation in details and absence of certain events that are unique to each book. • These apparent distinctions complement the full witness of Jesus Christ. Synoptic Gospels
  3. 3. Of the four Gospels, John is unique. John’s gospel account of Jesus’ life and teachings is completely different in content from the synoptic books. • The Gospel of John is more theologically focused on Christ’s deity and faith for our salvation. • Though the other books present the deity of Jesus Christ, John with inspired wisdom declares and shows its relevance to Christian faith and doctrine. • The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has a greater meaning because of who Jesus is. • Finally, John’s gospel underscores the importance of God in Christ presented also in the other gospels and completes the full testimony of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. Without John’s witness, we have an incomplete testimony. Gospel of John
  4. 4. Old Testament scriptures support the theme of each gospel author. • Matthew presents Jesus as the King of Israel (Isa 9:6-7). • Mark presents Jesus as the Servant of Jehovah (Isa. 42:1-8). • Luke presents Jesus as the Son of Man (Dan 7:13-14). • John presents Jesus as the Son of God (Ps 2). Each Gospel Author’s Theme
