The FOUR GOSPELS: One Story, Four Perspectives

(2 customer reviews)



If you’re wondering how someone could possibly capture the four Gospels in about 100 minutes,  it’s understandable!  This is intended to be an overview for those who wonder what the distinctions are between these four at a 30,000′ view.  How is Jesus viewed by each author, and who are these authors and when did they write?  The talk compares and contrasts the audiences, circumstances for writing, their emphasis, and how to approach them in a Bible study.

We explore the order in which each one was written, how they build on each other – or not – and the challenges faced in the generations in which they were penned.  Having begun to learn these differences, Christians can be so grateful that we have one Gospel message from four viewpoints, rather than a single story. Each of the authors of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John bring a different perspective on the Master Christian and write at different periods in the first century. After you’ve learned some of the purpose for writing, and historical context of each, then a deeper dive into each Gospel is available in additional talks from BibleRoads.

    I really learned so much from getting a clear sense of the history surrounding these gospels, books I have been reading all my life, including when they were written and by whom. This has added such a rich dimension to my study. It helps me relate to the lives of Jesus and the disciples is a very contemporary way. Madelon has such a breadth of knowledge and shares it so beautifully in this lecture. I love having it accessible in this format, too. I am able to listen while riding my bike or sitting quietly in my study. Madelon has also delineated clearly the differences between each of these gospels. I am looking forward to downloading more of Madelon’s lectures. Such a treasure trove!

    Having had the privilege of taking Bible study classes with Madelon over the past 8 years, I highly recommend all of her talks. What a great education and opportunity to learn about the Bible. I love this overview because it tells of the similarity and differences between all 4 Gospels. Between the CD’s and streaming, I possess all of her talks on the Bible and feel blessed.
