This is the Bible summary of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Instead of doing multiple summaries of each book of the Bible, I’m going to go through all the books and best as I can follow the story in order.
Introduction Of The Gospels
Book of Matthew– Matthew means “Gift of the Lord” and Matthew was also known as “Levi.” We see this a lot in the New Testament especially. Some people have multiple names, but they are the same person.
Some wonder, if when Jesus talks about the tax collector who cried out to God, perhaps the prayer of the tax collector was that of Matthew’s. This may not be true, but very interesting to think about.
The book of Matthew makes sure Jesusbeing the Messiah is connected to scriptures from the Old Testament that prove so.
Book Of Mark– Mark is known by his Latin name, Marcus, but the Jews knew him by his Hebrew name John. This name is referenced in Acts, as well (12:12,25)
This book focuses a lot on how Jesus is a servant and how He came to serve.
Book Of Luke– The well-known physician was very meticulous. Luke’s account seems to have researched and asked various witnesses about what took place. We see this through the details. The book of Luke is where we get the story of John the Baptist, before his birth. Luke is also where we are given a few glimpses of Christ’s life as a child, the places He moved to, and more. How Jesus began to teach at the age of 12. Luke is said to present Jesus in His humanity, as the Son of Man.
Book of John- In the same way Luke focused on how Jesus was human, John focused on how Jesus is the Son of God. There are seven miracles and seven “I AM” statements. John means “Yahweh Has Been Gracious.”
How These Summaries Will Go
As I shared, I’m not going to have separate accounts for each of the Gospels. I’m not going to skip over pieces either, no worries 🙂 . It is important to know the Gospels individually because the four Gospel are witness accounts of what took place. The purpose of the Gospel Journey is to get an overall idea of what took place, especially for those not familiar at all with stories from the Gospel accounts.
Whenever a story or event is discussed, the book and scriptures referring to that incident will be listed. If there are some differences, I may state so.
Next time, we will begin the Gospel Journey we will start with how John’s parents were told about his birth.
What are you looking forward to in visiting the Gospels?
Monthly Scripture, (NIV) John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
