What are the distinctive features of Matt
Purpose: To prove that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal king, and teach obedience to Jesus’ commands. More than any other Gospel it stresses Jesus’ relation to the OT.
More Jewish than the others (unexplained Jewish customs)
• Quotations of OT
• OT prophesy fulfilled
• Theological discussions framed in rabbinical debate
What are the distintive features of Mark?
Purpose: To present the person, work and teaching of Jesus- the good news. Shortest of the gospels, tells more about the actions than the teachings of Jesus. Direct and fast moving style carries us to the cross.
• More action/ less talk
• Abrupt ending
• More evangelistic
• Learned message probably from Peter
What are the distinctive features of Luke
Purpose: To present an accurate account of the life of Christ and to present Christ as the perfect man and savior- Assurance of truth about Jesus (1:1-4). This is the longest and most literary of the Gospels. Presents Jesus’ ancestry, birth, and early life before moving carefully through his ministry, death and resurrection, Luke is also the most comprehensive of the Gospels.
• Interest in history
• Emphases: prayer, wealth, women, Spirit
• Written for disciples
• Focus on ministry to general outcasts
• Learned message probably from Paul
What are the distinctive features of John
Purpose: Eternal life through faith in the Son of God- to prove conclusively that Jesus is the Son of God and that all who believe in him will have eternal life. Focuses on the mystery of the person of Christ and the incarnation, his relationship to the Father, and the importance of belief in Christ- together with the relative simplicity of its construction makes it frequently the first portion of Scripture to be translated into another language.
• Seven I am sayings
• Jew and Gentile appeals
• Lot of teaching; not a lot of details
• Feels very personal
• Name, Locate And Briefly Discuss Three Of Jesus' Parables
Parable of the sower- Matthew 13:3-9
The different types of soil represent different types of people. The parable is primarily about the Kingdom (coming into the world in hidden form, small and seemingly insignificant, like a seed) and how it comes into the world and how people respond to it.
Parable of the Prodigal Son- Luke 15:11-31
A father with two sons has one ask for his inheritance and squanders it in foreign land. Sorry for what he has done, the son seeks to return to his father who is waiting for him and throws a party to celebrate his return. The older brother is bitter and will not join the party showing the potential for our own bitterness at God’s grace to sinners. Told in response to Pharisees response to sinners coming to Christ.
Parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector- Luke 18:9-14
Jesus uses the example of a tax collector and a Pharisee’s prayer in the temple to rebuke those who are confident in their own righteousness and show them that one is justified by faith in the sacrifice on the Mercy seat.
• Name, Locate And Briefly Discuss Three Of Jesus' Miracles.
Healing of the Paralytic- Luke 5:17-26
Jesus demonstrates his power and authority, not just to heal, but to forgive sin. The paralytic demonstrates that there are times when our faith must overcome obstacles (even when the door is closed) to believe in order to receive the blessing of God.
Feeding of the 5000- Matthew 14:13-21
Jesus demonstrates his compassion for the people who had come so far and sat so long to hear his teaching. After telling the disciples to feed the people and they were not able to, Jesus prays and the Father multiplies the food so that all are feed and there is left over (12 baskets full). In this, Jesus shows himself to be the bread of life and that in him is our plenty.
Raising Lazarus from the Dead- John 11:38-44
Jesus intentionally delays his arrival so that he may demonstrate his power over death. As well this miracle shows Jesus’ compassion to those who bear the scars of that fallen world (when he weeps) and shows us the love and mercy of our great high priest.

• Testimony to Christ- reference to who Jesus is, the resurrected Christ
• Disciples were witnesses

. Locate And Discuss At Least Two Passages Which Deal With Law And Grace.
• Romans 3:21-24 (ESV) But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— 22the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
• Romans 8:1-2 (ESV) There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
• Galatians 3:10-11 (ESV) For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them." 11Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for "The righteous shall live by faith."
• Galatians 5:4-5 (ESV) You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. 5For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.

Beliefs: attempted to balance human merit and divine grace; soul is imperishable and there will be a resurrection of the dead; simple living (no concession to luxury); high view of human capacity. For them the life of faith was obedience to the Law and they held de facto that tradition and interpretation supersede law.

NT people: Cornelius
Ac. 10
Centurion and devout God-fearer who gave generously to needy and prayed regularly. Had a vision where an angel of God told him to send for Peter who was at that time in Joppa. God confirmed this request to Peter through a vision, and Peter went to Cornelius in Caesarea. While Peter was speaking to his household the Holy Spirit came upon all who heard the message and they were baptized with water. This incident confirmed to the Jews that the gospel would go to the Gentiles.
