KIM'S RECOMMENDATIONS: During the month of September I participated in a Gospel challenge! I read all four Gospels in four weeks and I learned a LOT! Each Gospel writer has different talents and personalities, so their accounts all differ! Look below:
Mark: Shortest gospel and that’s because he gives the facts! He prefers actions > words.
Matthew: He was a tax collector (one of those on the margins) before he became one of the 12, so he knows what it was like to be saved by Jesus. He also loves numbers and analyzing plus he includes a lot of description! Also references the OT to prove Jesus is the real deal
Luke: Was a doctor so he focuses a lot on Jesus’ healings and miracles. He emphasizes the humanity of Jesus too by including feelings in the text. And he promotes girl power.
John: Dude was a poet! Even from the beginning his gospel sounds like a love letter to the world. Swoon.
This next week challenge yourself to get through one of the Gospels of your choosing! Or listen to the Bible through an audio app. I have been using Dwell, or try Streetlights - it is a Bible app made specifically for high school teens.
