(Matthew Mark Luke John)

THE WORD GOSPEL MEANS “GOOD NEWS.” ALMOST HALF THE NEW TESTAMENT CONSIST OF FOUR ACCOUNTS OF THE LIFE OF JESUS AND THE GOOD NEWS HE BROUGHT TO EARTH.  EACH OF THESE FOUR BOOKS, OR GOSPELS, HAS A DIFFERENT FOCUS AND A DIFFERENT AUDIENCE; TAKEN TOGETHER, THEY GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF JESUS’ LIFE AND TEACHING. ABOUT A THIRD OF THEIR PAGES ARE DEVOTED TO THE EVENTS OF HIS LAST WEEK ON EARTH, INCLUDING THE CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION. (Matthew Mark Luke John)

ACTS CONTINUES THE HISTORY INTO THE PERIOD AFTER JESUS LEFT EARTH.

MATTHEW:

WRITTEN TO A JEWISH AUDIENCE, THIS GOSPEL LINKS THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. IT PRESENTS JESUS AS THE MESSIAH AND KING PROMISED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. MATTHEW EMPHASIZES JESUS’ AUTHORITY AND POWER.

MARK: (Matthew Mark Luke John)

MARK PROBABLY HAD PRAGMATIC ROMAN READERS IN MIND. HIS GOSPEL STRESSES ACTION AND GIVES A STRAIGHTFORWARD, BLOW BY BLOW ACCOUNT OF JESUS’ WORK ON EARTH.

LUKE:

A DOCTOR, LUKE WAS ALSO A FINE WRITER. HIS GOSPEL PROVIDES MANY DETAILS OF HUMAN INTEREST, ESPECIALLY IN JESUS’ TREATMENT OF THE POOR AND NEEDY. A JOYFUL TONE CHARACTERIZES LUKE’S BOOK.

JOHN:

JOHN HAS A DIFFERENT, MORE REFLECTIVE STYLE THAN THE OTHER GOSPELS. ITS AUTHOR SELECTED SEVEN SIGNS THAT POINT TO JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD AND WOVE TOGETHER EVERYTHING ELSE TO UNDERSCORE THAT POINT.

ACTS:

ACTS TELLS WHAT HAPPENED TO JESUS’ FOLLOWERS AFTER HE LEFT THEM. PETER AND PAUL SOON EMERGED AS LEADERS OF THE RAPIDLY SPREADING CHURCH.
