The Synoptic Gospels and the Kingdom of God
About this Lesson
How do we know what we’re told about Jesus is true?
Wasn’t the New Testament written hundreds of years after He lived?
How do we know it isn’t just legends about a good teacher?
And why did some books get included and others didn’t?
In addition to that, from the start, John the Baptist and Jesus both talked about the importance of the Kingdom of God—that with Jesus the Kingdom was now present.
The whole idea of the Kingdom can be challenging to understand and though we won’t attempt to explain it totally, we will discuss it, what it meant then, and what it means now to us in this lesson.
First, we will briefly go over the 4 gospels, emphasizing in this lesson what are called the "Synoptic" Gospels--Matthew, Mark, and Luke. The word, synoptic means "having a similar view." All three of these tell basically the same story and timeline of the life of Jesus but what makes each of them unique is the audience they are addressed to.
