Publisher's Summary

As a Christian, how do you come to know Jesus? And how can this knowledge transform your life?

The four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are foundational to Christianity. They provide the earliest written narratives of the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. Yet Christian readers are often puzzled by the differences between the Gospels, preferring to harmonize the four into a single narrative.

Now, this 24-part lecture course invites you to sort through the important differences among Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Along the way, you will examine theories about how the three Synoptic Gospels are related. You will also learn why the evangelists are symbolized by four living creatures: the man or angel, the lion, the ox, and the eagle. Each Gospel will then be introduced in turn, focusing on three essential components: Its overall narrative shape, Its distinctive portrait of Jesus, and Its theological understanding of Christ’s passion and resurrection.

As you will see, each Gospel offers a compelling depiction of Jesus. Acclaimed New Testament scholar Professor Ian Boxall asks you to imagine these four depictions as portraits. Much like an artist from one era might depict a subject differently than would an artist from another - picture a lifelike Rembrandt next to a prismatic Picasso - so the evangelists “paint” Jesus in different lights.

As you compare the four Gospels in detail, you will gain new insight into Jesus of Nazareth and the ways Christians have developed personal relationships with him through the ages. This course includes a free PDF study guide prepared by your professor and course producer.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
