1 The Gospels/Acts The four Gospels and Acts present the events of the life of Jesus Christ and the birth and early days of the church. In a certain sense they may be called historical books, because together they relate events that occurred over a period of around sixty years or so. However, the Gospels are more than history. They include preaching and teaching material meant for spiritual guidance and understanding, and are intended as a testimonial witness so that people might be converted and receive eternal life. The four presentations are a whole genre of literature unto themselves they are the Gospels. Acts too, is distinctive from a traditional history, in that it is a testimonial to the work of the Holy Spirit in the early days of the church, from about A.D. 30 to 60, from the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit fell upon 120 believers to the arrival of Paul at Rome and his first imprisonment there around A.D Therefore, the Gospels and Acts are an historical witness and testimony of God's active work to redeem man firstly through the earthly ministry and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, and then through work of the Holy Spirit in the early Church. The intention is that all people would see the truth of the gospel and be converted. Special Note. There are a number of special considerations to remember when studying the Gospels: 1. Matthew, Mark, and Luke are similar in their presentation. It is strongly believed that there was some use of one book in the writing of the other two. This is known as the synoptic problem, and there have been a number of varying theories concerning this matter. All of these books were completed by A.D. 60 or shortly thereafter. 2. John differs greatly in style from the other three Gospels, and has a strong empasis on teaching spiritual and theological aspects of the years of ministry of Jesus, and of His death, resurrection and ascention. This may very well be due to the late date of the writing of this book, probably between A.D By the end of the century there had been time to reflect upon the spiritual significance of the life and events surrounding Jesus Christ, and it is apparent the apostle John attempts to build this developed understanding into his Gospel. 3. Acts, written by Luke, basically focuses on events surrounding the apostles Peter and Paul, and so does NOT present a complete history of all of the events of the church in those first decades. It also ends abruptly with Paul's first imprisonment at Rome, around A.D , 1

2 leaving the important years that followed, including Paul's release and further ministry, without a biblical record. 4. The full window of time covered by these books is from about 4-5 B.C. with the birth of Jesus to about A.D with the first imprisonment of Paul in Rome; that is, a period of about 65 years. Matthew Matthew was a tax collector and hated by loyal Jews, and probably viewed as a traitor. Matthew made more references to the Old Testament than did the other writers, to show evidence of Christ's Messiahship, because he wrote chiefly to the Jews. This is why the geneologies are given, showing that Christ fulfills the correct lineage to be Messiah. Regarding the "synoptic problem", intense scholarship has drawn a number of variations of theory on the source material compiled and written by Matthew, Mark, and Luke, including statistics of verses used in one and also in the others, etc. One theory is that Mark wrote his Gospel first, and that Matthew borrowed from Mark and some unknown source called "Q", and that Luke borrowed from Mark, Matthew, and also "Q." Another theory says that Matthew wrote his Gospel first. Whichever is the case, the fact remains that the similarities of the three Gospels by three different people attempting to reach possibly three different classes of people supplies remarkable evidence and validation of the claims and other statements presented in these synoptic Gospels. TRUE OR FALSE: Write T or F followed by the verse in which you found the answer: T/F Verse 1. There were as many generations between Abraham and David as there were between the Babylonian captivity and the time of Christ. 2. Joseph wanted to put Mary away as a public example, but the angel came to him and explained that she was carrying the Messiah. 3. Joseph was told that Jesus would save the people from their sins. 4. Herod was anxious to learn about the coming of Messiah, but only because he wanted to destroy Him. 5. Jospeh did not bring Mary and Jesus back away from Egypt until the angel said it was safe. 6. In chapter 1 and 2, Matthew has referred to Old Testament prophecies about Jesus five times. (Look for "fulfilled" and "written.") 7. John did not baptize his converts. 2
