Jesus and the Gospels
SEMESTER 1 2023
Tuesday Evening Unit
Being a Christian involves ‘following’ the Lord Jesus, not around Galilee and Judea, but in the course of our daily lives. The four Gospels provide four different records of what Jesus said and did. They are the foundation for knowing and understanding what he has done for us, as well as what he said about God and his will. If we really want to ‘follow’ Jesus, if we really want to be salt and light in our world, then the Gospels need to be our regular reading matter.
In this unit we study the different contributions that each Gospel makes to this portrait of Jesus, his life and words, his death and resurrection. Be prepared to listen to Jesus’ words and ponder his meaning, both for disciples in the first century and in the twenty first century. Be ready to encounter Jesus in a fresh way, as we examine the four Gospels of the New Testament.
