THE FOUR GOSPELS


God chose four men to write His gospel. They had different occupations, different perspectives, and different personalities, giving a complete gospel presentation to whoever reads them.




QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION:


1. Who were the four men who wrote the gospel?

2. What were their occupations?

3. What were their personalities?

4. What audience did each write to?

5. Explain why it is important to relate to Said, Did, Felt, and Was when witnessing.

6. What are you known for?

7. What was your “Aha” Moment?


I know I have asked several questions, but I believe it is necessary to understand these points to become; “The Greatest Evangelistic Team in the Region!”

Looking forward to our discussion.

In His Service,

Bishop Bill

Hi Stephanie, Great statement: "it is important because people take things in, hear things in a different level and aspect. Just as Jesus used parables it was so that people could understand the kingdom. That's how our testimonies and our witnesses he will reach other people because it will show them the word becoming life in their life in a way that they could take it and move with it.

Yes, Luke was not sympathetic but he was compassionate. The world understands sympathy but only a Christian can understand true compassion: And Jesus was moved with :compassion"

Great Post!

In His Service,

Bishop Bill

Amen Sheri. I too was blessed by the question "Who did you help today?" I asked that question to the men at Born Again Men this past Wednesday morning and it brought out quite a response/silence coming from people. It got them thinking about someone else other than themselves...

Who were the four who wrote the gospel?

Matthew, Mark, Luke, John,


What were their occupations?

Matthew a tax collector,

Mark stenographer/disciple

Luke a Physician

John a fisherman


What were their personalities?

Matthew was a accurate record keeper. He knew the human heart of the Jewish people. And he was loyal to Jesus Luke was a humble person and did not want attention drawn to him Mark was likely a D-assertive as his gospel was the shortest out of the other three disciples John at times had temper problems and would be quick to lash out of people.


What audience did each write to?

Matthew wrote to the Jews

Mark Gentile Converts

Luke Greco -Roman's

John did not focus on…

Enjoyed reading your post John.


I liked your statement about us needing to personalize what Jesus said, did, and was when witnessing "I think when witnessing to people it is important to relate to the issues to the people we are witnessing to so using the words Did, Felt, personalize us to people"

Great post. What really blessed me about your post was your breakdown of why we need the "somes;"

- We need some Matthews who will get the roar back in the Church.

- We need some Marks who will focus on the miraculous.

- We need some Lukes who will report we have answers for mankind and their issues.

- We need some Johns who will go to the crowds and prepare people for eternity.

This really ministered to me and got me thinking no wonder we need to know what people need saved from in order to effectively minister to people through the 4 personalities of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

I am in agreement with Rev. Connie and Bishop about your statement "I want to be known for being willing to serve. Being real. For being one who gives time and attention when no one else will. I tear up at the hope of someone being able to say “he’s the one who introduced me to God.”

Amen and Amen. This hope is what the church needs to have. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
