The Gospels Tell the Story of Jesus Christ

By

The four Gospels recount the story of Jesus Christ, each book giving us a unique perspective on his life. They were written between A.D. 55-65, with the exception of John's Gospel, which was written around A.D. 85-90.

The Gospel of Matthew presents undeniable evidence that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. This book forms the joining link between Old and New Testament, focusing on the fulfillment of prophecy. Through a dramatic and action-packed sequence of events, the Gospel of Mark shows us Jesus the Servant. Luke's Gospel was written to give a reliable and precise record of Jesus Christ's life, revealing not only his humanity but his perfection as a human. The Gospel of John gives an up-close and personal look at Christ's identity as the Son of God.
