S-104. The Four Gospels of Jesus: A Comparative Study


Who is Jesus? He is the cornerstone of our faith and the head of the church. The main goal of this class is to compare the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The word gospel means good news, and is a term used to define the written accounts of Jesus of Nazareth in the New Testament. Matthew, Mark, and Luke are called the synoptic gospels. They represent a whole, similar view of the life of Jesus while John depicts Jesus as God from the beginning. Each written with a distinctive purpose: Matthew for the Jews to show that Jesus is the Messiah; Mark for the Romans to present the basics of the gospel; Luke for a Greek to show how a world religion can come from such a humble place like manger; and John who presents a more complete picture of Jesus. At the end of this class you will gain a valuable and insightful knowledge for exploring the life of Jesus through the first four books of the New Testament.  

Four (4) two-hour sessions will be dedicated to each gospel narrative to explore the four gospels of Jesus Christ. There will be discussions at the end of each session to broaden our understanding of Jesus Christ as the Messiah who came to this world and gave his life to save us from the power of sin and death and eternal judgment.
