Please watch: "How to do a Greek Word Study using a FREE Online Tool!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ip64M47RWw --~-- Here are 7 popular false teachings Christians must avoid. Jesus said that false teachers would come as wolves in sheep's clothing. Much of what is being promoted across the pulpit today is false teaching and not supported in scripture. I encourage you to check everything you hear against scripture to ensure it is biblically sound. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ LEARN TO STUDY THE BIBLE: https://biblestudymadeez.com The BEAT helps people grow spiritually by providing truth, training and teaching from the word of God.

The Four Gospels: An Introduction on WhiteBoard

There are 4 gospels. Ever wondered why not one? This is the new version of the "4 Gospels Video" we have done before. Thanks for all your support and we hope these video can really help you to grow spiritually. ►► More informations: http://crosspaint.tv Stay In Touch Here: Website: http://www.crosspaint.tv Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/crosspaint.tv Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/crosspaint Donations/Coffee: https://www.patreon.com/crosspaint — About Crosspaint: Crosspaint Is Part Of A Non-Denominational Movement That Strives To Encourage Young People All Over The World Through Contemporary Mediums To Stick Close To The Bible And Be Faithful To Jesus Christ For The Last Few Miles. Crosspaint’s mission is to ignite a passion in people for Jesus. We believe only the Bible and the Holy Spirit can do this, so we explain the Bible in easy language and sweet images. In between we drink a good cup of coffee "It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed/painted" - Gal 3:1 --- TEXT: Imagine four persons in a 2 dimensional world would describe to you the external facade of a house. Now imagine one would say “The House is purple.” Another one would say “The House is white.” Another one “The House is red.” And the last one would say “The house is Blue”. Now in a two-dimensional world, this looks contradictory, but imagine the house was three dimensional and would look this: The 4 Gospels are not a complete autobiography of Jesus Christ, but rather show 4 different and complementary “aspects of his life”. The Gospel writers therefore may be compared to four artists. Each of them painted a distinct portrait of the Jesus Christ. But why didn’t God just write one gospel? To answer this let’s go back to the drawing of the house. If we would stand in front of this house, it would be impossible for us to see all four facades at the same time. The limitation however would not be with the house, but with us. It’s the same with the Gospels. The person of the Lord Jesus is so great and wonderful, but also of such complexity that it would have been impossible for us to assimilate it if it was written in one story. Furthermore these four stories do not grasp the totality of what Jesus Christ did. Because John says that there are many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, he suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Now what are these four portraits? Let’s go through them quickly. The Gospels got named after their writer’s name: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Matthew was a jewish tax-collector. The guy that nobody liked. And because God is grace, he gets to write about the highest person in the jewish hierarchy: The Messiah and the king. So Matthew’s Gospel presents us Jesus as the King. Mark was a servant that had gone off-track, but had been restored. By grace he was chosen by God to write about the Lord Jesus as a servant. Mark’s Gospel presents us Jesus as the Servant. Luke was a physician and who would be better equipped than a medical doctor to write about the manhood of Christ. Luke’s Gospel presents us Jesus as the perfect man. John, the fisherman, is the disciple that Jesus loved and he describes Jesus in a way that none of the other gospels do: He reveals us Jesus Christ as the Son of God. I hope I was clear and concise for this introduction. If you have any questions or comments, leave them below and please subscribe, so we keep you update about new videos.

Have you ever wondered why there were 4 gospels written instead of just one? Stick around and find out why.

Hey everyone, welcome back my name is Allen Parr and today we are answering the question, “Why do we have 4 gospels instead of just one?”

The first thing we have to realize is that each gospel was written by a different person for a difference purpose to a specific group of people.

During the time when these Gospels were written there was all sorts of information circulating around written about Jesus. There were healings, miracles, sermons, teachings, parables. Stories about His life, etc.

Each gospel writer carefully selected from this group to convince their particular audience that Jesus was indeed God.
So let's look at Matthew

PURPOSE: To convince the Jewish people that Jesus was the promised Messiah whom THEY had just crucified.

How does he do it? Knowing that the Jews believed in the authority of the OT, Matthew used more OT Scriptures than the other writers to show how Jesus was the fulfillment of over 330 prophecies written about Him in the OT.
ii. Focuses more on how Jesus was the fulfillment of over 330 prophecies written about Him in the OT.
5. Mark
a. PURPOSE: To convince the Romans that Jesus was the promised Messiah. So Mark had to get into the mind of a Roman and ask, “What is it that would convince me to believe that Jesus is indeed God?”
b. How does he do it?
i. His gospel is the shortest because he omitted things about Jesus’ life that would probably not convince a Roman to believe in Jesus.
ii. If you’re a Roman you don’t care where Jesus was born and who His great, great granddaddy is? Just tell me what He can do for ME!
1. Genealogy & Nativity
2. Jesus’ long teachings
3. Omits most OT references
iii. Mark knew that a Roman would be impressed with a God who performed miracles, healings and raised people from the dead. So Mark focused moreso on what Jesus did rather than what Jesus said.
6. Luke – Luke was a Gentile (non-Jew) who was writing primarily to a Gentile audience. When Jesus was alive there were all these groups that the Jews considered to be rejects (lepers, prostitutes, Samaritans, Gentiles, Tax Collectors, sinners, etc.) So, Luke says, you know what, “I’m going to write a gospel that will show people that Jesus didn’t just come for the good people, the religious people, the highly aristocratic Jew.” No, Jesus came for people like you and I who messed up our lives, made poor decisions, etc. And so Luke wrote to convince these people that Jesus came for them.
a. Luke includes stories in his gospel that are not found in any of the other 3 gospels to prove that Jesus came not just for the religious Jewish people but for people who messed up their life. (Prodigal Son, Thief on the cross, prostitute, ten lepers, etc.)
b. So next time you read Luke I want you to notice how Luke wrote to convince people that if you’ve messed up your life, if you need grace or you feel like you’ve made too many mistakes, Luke writes a gospel focused on grace!
7. John – John’s gospel is unique in that 93% of its content is not found in the other three gospels. John was writing to a general audience and his purpose was to prove that Jesus was God. He did this by focusing on 7 statements that Jesus made about Himself and 8 miracles that Jesus performed during His earthly ministry in hopes of convincing his audience that Jesus is indeed God.
