This session covers the first five books of the New Testament – the four gospels and the Acts of the Apostles.
Part 1: The Four Gospels
Question: How many gospels are there.
Answer: Four (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)
Or should the answer be: There is only one gospel?
While there is advantage in seeking to harmonise the gospels, to obtain ‘a life of Christ’, our aim here is to observe the differences between them, and see His life from four different viewpoints.
Part 2: The Acts of the Apostles (Acts)
Acts can be analysed under at least three different headings – People, Places and Principles
People – Peter and Paul
Places – Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, The ‘Ends of the Earth’
Principles – The Holy Spirit at Work – In the local community, In individual lives, In a crisis, In groups/teams.
