4 Gospels

A gospel is an account that


describes the life of Jesus of
Nazareth.

The word gospel derives from the


Old English gd-spell, meaning
"good news" or "glad tidings".

3 Synoptic Gospels
"Synoptic" means here that they can be
"seen" or "read together," indicating the
many parallels that exist among the three.
It is widely believed that the three synoptic
gospels derive from a common source or set
of sources, and that they directly or
indirectly borrowed from or were influenced
by each other.
The fourth gospel, the Gospel of John,
presents a very different picture of Jesus
and his ministry from the synoptics.

ABOUT THE NEW
TESTAMENT
Like the Old Testament, the New
Testament is not one book, but a
collection of 27 individual books that
reflect a wide range of themes,
literary forms, and purposes.
MATTHEW
Theme: The Kingdom of God

Setting: Palestine

21-25 Final Clashes with the

MARK

Theme: The Suffering Servant


Date written: A.D. 60
Author: John Mark
Setting: Rome
Mark - Introduction
Mark (his Roman Name) and John (his
Jewish name) was not an eyewitness of
the life of Jesus. But he is a close
companion of the apostle Peter, who
passed on the details of his association
with Jesus to John Mark. Whereas
Matthew wrote the gospel to a Jewish
audience, Mark seems to target Roman
believers.
Mark Introduction
Continues...
Mark uses Latin, the Language of the
Romans, for certain expressions as he
writes his Gospel in Greek. Mark
describes time according to the Roman
system, carefully explains Jewish
customs and omits the traditional
Jewish genealogies as found in
Matthew.
Mark Introduction
Continues...
Mark presents Jesus as the suffering
servant. He focuses more on Jesus
deeds than His teachings. He
demonstrates the humanity of Christ
and describes His human emotions, His
limitations as a human, ultimately His
physical death.
Theme of the Book
The message of Marks gospel is
captured in a single verse: For even
the Son of Man did not come to be
served, but to serve, and to give His life
a ransom for many (10:45). Chapter by
chapter, the book unfolds the dual focus
of Christs life: Service and Sacrifice.

LUKE

Theme: The Perfect Man


Date Written: AD 60-62
Author: Luke, the beloved physician
Where Written: Rome
Luke Introduction
Luke wanted to create an accurate,
chronological, and comprehensive
account of the unique life of Jesus the
Christ to strengthen the faith of Gentile
believers and stimulate saving faith
among nonbelievers.
Luke Introduction
Continues...
It is evident from the opening lines of
this Gospel that it is addressed to a man
named Theophilus. Its purpose is to
give an accurate historical account of
the unique life of Jesus. Luke, a doctor
and the only Gentile (non-jew) author of
the New Testament books, is writing to
strengthen the faith of Gentiles,
especially Greek believers.
Luke Introduction
Continues...
He also desires to stimulate unbelieving
Greeks to consider the claims that
Jesus Christ is the perfect Manthe
Son of Manwho came in sacrificial
service to seek and to save sinful men.
Luke: Introduction
Continues...
The humanity and compassion of Jesus
are repeatedly stressed in Lukes
gospel. Luke gives the most complete
account of Christs ancestry, birth, and
development. He is the ideal Son of
Man who identified with the sorrow and
plight of sinful men in order to carry our
sorrows and offer us the priceless gift of
salvation. Jesus alone fulfills the greek
ideal of human perfection.

JOHN
Theme: The Son of God
Date Written: A.D. 80 -90
Author: John, the disciple
whom Jesus loved
Setting: Palestine
John - Introduction
50 years since John witnessed the
earthly life of Jesus
The Christian faith has flourished and
spread throughout the known world.
But with growth has come great
persecution by the Roman government.
All Christs apostles have died or been
martyred except for John.
John Introduction
Now an old man, John provides a
supplement to what has already been
written about Jesus in the first three
gospel accounts.
His account of Jesus presents the most
powerful and direct case for the deity
and humanity of the incarnate Son of
God.
John Introduction
John draws mainly upon events and
discourses not found in the other
gospels to prove to his readers that
Jesus is God in the flesh, the eternal
Word come to earth, born to die as
Gods sacrifice for human sin.
Purpose of Book of John
John gives a precise statement of his
purpose in writing: These are written
that you may believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God, and that
believing you may have life in His
name (John 20:31).
In fact, he uses the term believe about
100 times to get the message across.
Theme of the Gospel of John
The predominant theme of this gospel is
the dual response of faith and unbelief
in the person of Jesus Christ. Those
who place their faith in the Son of God
have eternal life, but those who reject
Him are under the condemnation of God
(3:36; 5:24-29; 10:27-29) this is the
basic issue.
John Introduction
Johns gospel is topical, not primarily
chronological, and it revolves around
seven miracles and seven I am
statement of Christ.
Author (John)
Jesus nicknamed John and his brother James,
Sons of Thunder (Mark 3:17). Their father was
a zebedee, and their mother, Salome, served
Jesus in Galilee and was present at His
crucifixion (see Mark 15:40-41).
He was among the 12 men who were selected to
be apostles (Luke 6:12-16).
Pillar of the Church Gal 2:9.
He went to Ephesus and later exiled by Romans
for a time to the island of Patmos (Rev. 1:9).
The Seven I Ams of Jesus
I am the bread of Life - John 6:35, 48
I am the light of the World John 8:12, 9:5
I am the door John 10:7, 9
I am the good shepherd - John 10: 11, 14

ACTS
Theme: The Spread of the Gospel
Date Written: A.D. 60-62
Author: Luke, a Greek physician
Setting: Jerusalem to Rome
Acts - Introduction
Acts is Lukes account of the growth of
the early Church. As a sequel to his
account of the life of Jesus returned to
heaven. He once again addresses his
writing to a Greek named Theophilus.
Acts Introduction
In spite of severe opposition and
persecution, the fearless church
experiences explosive growth.
Acts 1:8 provides an outline for the
following 30 year record of the growth of
the church, which begins in Jerusalem,
spreads to Samaria, extends to the
world.
Acts Introduction
Acts is the historical link between the
Gospels and the Epistles. Because of
Lukes strong emphasis on the ministry
of the Holy Spirit, the book should really
be regards as the Acts of the Spirit of
Christ working in through the apostles.
As a missionary himself, Lukes interest
in the progressive spread of the gospel
is obviously reflected in this apostolic
history.
