Each Gospel is a reaction to a problem or situation confronting a first-century congregation. The authors told their stories of Jesus to help their congregations through these crises. Since each situation is different, a unique story is told. Discovering that situation and how the Gospel addressed it creates very different understandings of Jesus, the church, atonement, and the nature of discipleship. Each Gospel is examined in the order of their occurrence beginning on January 2, and each Thursday in January. VIDEOS WILL BE PROVIDED IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE LIVE SESSIONS.
