jesus in the gospels bible study
beginning april 22
Thursday Evenings | 6:30 - 8:00 pm
JESUS IN THE GOSPELS invites believers to look at Jesus in each of the four Gospels and ask the question “Who is the Jesus that you see?” This study will deepen discipleship through better understanding of the biblical texts and their message. Different from DISCIPLE Bible Study in its approach to Scripture, this class looks more closely at the Gospel texts, in the kind of daily preparation and study required of the participants, in lesson layout and design, and in the nature of the study and discussion that takes place in the weekly group meeting.
JESUS IN THE GOSPELS focuses on the portraits of Jesus found in the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The word used in the title signals that the study takes an approach different from the familiar “life and teaching of Jesus” approach of reading stories and accounts of what Jesus said and did in order to draw conclusions about their meaning and about who Jesus was. This study looks at the way each Gospel writer presents events and teaching and at the picture of Jesus that emerges in each of the Gospels.
This 30-week study will be led by Pastor Hap Itson.
