Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These are the names of the men who wrote the biographies of the life of the most famous and influential person in the history of the world – Jesus Christ. Each author, in his own unique way, presents Jesus as the one and only Savior which the human race so desperately needs to rescue it from the unbreakable grip of death. The writings are ancient, almost two thousand years old. Still, they remain at the top of the best seller list every year. Ironically, though the Gospels are purchased, they are not read. The short reads of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John lay unopened on coffee tables or tucked away in closets. Perhaps it is our disdain for the ancient, or our skepticism of the supernatural or our obsession with the entertaining.
Regardless of our self-made obstacles to reading Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, their appeal remains the same as it always has: “Read us and your life will be changed.” Does such a claim seem tired and worn out in our culture of exaggerated promises? Don’t let the artificial inhibitions of our culture keep you from the Gospels. This weekend we begin a three month adventure studying the one Jesus through the four Gospels. Join us! Give change a chance!
