    Studying the New Testament Gospels requires one to look in-depth at the similarities and differences among these gospels and use those observations to gain insights into the messages behind them. Kurt Aland’s book Synopsis of the Four Gospels is helpful in this endeavor because it explores the four gospels and their stories into corresponding pericopes.

    Many scholarly opinions have different opinions on when the Gospel was written. Ranging from the early sixties to the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, are the most common held views. “Since Luke contains 350 verses of Mark is must have been written after Mark” (Summers 10). Furthermore, verses like Luke 19:43-44 give an indication of the disastrous Jewish-Roman war. Another reference found in Luke 21:20 gives a clear picture of the destruction of Jerusalem, factual knowledge that the author…

    The Four Gospels include the first four books of the New Testament including Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Each book portrays Jesus in a different way, depending on audience and time in history. I will point out the portraits in each book, and then give examples from scripture and other sources to further understanding. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is portrayed as the “New Moses” (Gundry, 188). Moses was a very significant figure to the Jews in the Old Testament. Most importantly, Moses led…

    We have studied many different topics, however the two topics that resonated with me were the “Gospel and the Sin Nature.” I was raised with Christian values and coming into this course, I felt I had a good grasp of what these topics meant, but I was mistaken. The topic I chose is about two men and the consequences they suffered as a result of their actions. “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were…

    “movement from God into the world and in terms of the intentionality of Jesus’ mission in Galatians 4:4-5” (26). Furthermore, in Galatians 1:1 and 15-16 describes Paul’s mission as movement and intentionality. Paul’s goal of his mission is to preach the gospel (the message of Jesus Christ) to not only to the Jews, but also to Gentiles. In other words, according to Romans 1:14 and 15:19, Paul wanted to proclaim the fact that God is the true God, and Jesus is the…

    person wants to get out of their anonymity to be a leader, and do everything to show they are the best, their ability to lead is recognized by others and not by your will.

    Father’s house.” This text is the only story of Jesus’ childhood in any of the canonical Gospels. Only Luke found it necessary to include this image of Jesus. Other gospels, like the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, depict Jesus as a child, but these stories are more elaborate. Luke’s image of a young Jesus is more concise and serves a particular function within the larger context of this Gospel.
