Product Description

Who is Jesus really? Four Gospels seem confusing; why is there not just one story of Jesus? What are the unique portraits of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? To what kinds of congregations were these New Testament Scriptures addressed? These are only some of the questions that newcomers to the Bible are likely to ask. Is it possible to find these answers and appreciate the Scriptures, and deepen our spirituality without being a Bible scholar? Absolutely! Here is an easily read, fast paced, Bible study built around the distinctive portrait of Jesus in each of the four Gospels. Each chapter begins with a passage relating to a key theme for that particular Gospel, then addresses a series of questions designed to acquaint readers with the important issues in that Gospel, and its audience. A week's worth of daily prayer reflections complete each Gospel's portrait of Jesus. Flexible enough to fit into limited or more generous time frame, here is a wonderful way to introduce what is inarguably the greatest book ever written.
