I will be posting some thoughts as I read through the New Testament. I welcome input and polite discussion.
Here is some information I found in the Gospels to get started.
Matthew concentrates on how Jesus came to fulfill Jewish prophecy. No other gospel so forcefully shows the hypocritical outlook of the Pharisees. Jesus is portrayed as a teacher.
Mark emphasizes action. He stresses how Jesus taught that he must suffer and be rejected.
Luke stressed the blessing of salvation. Luke brings out the grace of god revealed in Jesus.
John reveals Jesus as the one sent by god. John brings out the eternal significance of the god become man.
The good news demanded a response. Jesus calls us to repent and become his disciples.
The gospel forces us to make a decision as to who Jesus is. Is he a prophet, is he a crazy man, is he the son of god?
As a believer, I cannot concert anyone. I can only provide you with the information and then it is up to you to make the decision as to who Jesus is. I hope you make the same choice I did that Jesus is the Son of God and my Lord and Savior.
