A LOOK AT THE SYNOPTIC GOSPEL:
Matthew, Mark and Luke are synoptic gospels. the fact is that they SEE TOGETHER. Synoptic Gospels are Gospels that see together. The Oxford Dictionary says, Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, describing events from a similar point of view.
THEOLOGY OF THE GOSPELS:
The First three gospels naturally show a complex web of likeness and differences. A comparison of the individual Gospels shows a considerable amount of general agreement between them in their theological Presentations.
1. they tell the story of Jesus in Similar ways.
2. they have a large number of stories about Jesus in common, and their transcriptions of many of the sayings of Jesus show a high degree of verbal agreement.
3. our concern here is to ask whether their varied pictures have an essential unity despite their considerable diversity.

His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

THE HOLY SPIRIT:
The role of the Spirit in inspiring scrptural authors ( Mk 12:36 ) continues in the activity of contemporary person who give Spirit inspired commemtary on events ( Lk 1-2 ).
2. Since the Spirit resting on the Messiah is promised in the Old Testament, it is appropriate that at his baptism Jesus receives the Spirit at the outset of his work, so that he is guided by the Spirit and his mighty works are empoered by the Spirit ( and are not the result of Satanic or demonic influence ).
3. Mark gives us the bare essentials. Matthew and Luke both cite scriptural backing ( Mat. 12:18; Lk. 4:18 ).
4. Expressions about the power of God have the same force (cf. Mat 12:28; Lk 11:20 ). Both Mark and Luke associate the conception of Jesus with the Spirit's activity.
5. Luke has a distinctive vocabulary of being filled with the Spirit ( Lk 1:15, 41, 67; 4:1 ) The Evangelists are aware of the Old Testament picture of the Messiah and servant of The Lord, on whom the Spirit rests, and see no incogruity in the Son of God receiving the Spirit of God.
6. All the Gospels record the prophecy by John that the Stronger One will baptize with the Spirit ( and with Fire, according to Matthew and Luke ), but only Luke is in a position to show that nthis prophecy is fulfilled in the early church ( Acts 11:16 ).
7. Jesus briefly mentions the Spirit's anabling disciples to say the right things when they are persecuted and put on trial. the Spirit is apparently not bestowed on the disciples during the time of Jesus except for the actors in Luke 1-2, who function like Old Testament prophets in announcing the birth of the Messiah, and possibly the disciples (Lk 9:1)
Today's passage of Scripture is Ezra 7:10 which reads: "For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments."
Today's quote about the Bible is from Johann Goethe. He said: "Let mental culture go on advancing, let the natural sciences progress in ever greater extent and depth, and the human mind widen itself as much as it desires, beyond the elevation and moral culture of Christianity, as it shines forth in the gospels, it will not go."
Our topic for today is titled: "The Idea of Canon (Part 2)" from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin
When the Jews were scattered throughout the world in the Diaspora (after the Babylonian exile), they began translating the Old Testament into their everyday languages. The most important translation of the Old Testament is the Greek, often called the Septuagint. The Septuagint is a product of the Exile. Although Ezra and Nehemiah consolidated the nation after the return, a number of Jews remained scattered throughout the Middle East. After Alexander the Great, Greek displaced Aramaic as the lingua franca. Aramaic was close enough to Hebrew that literate Aramaic speaker, with some effort and help, could read Hebrew. That was not the case with Greek. Within a few generations, many Greek-speaking Jews were no longer able to understand their Bible. To compensate, the Jews in Alexandria commissioned a translation of Hebrew-Aramaic text into Greek. This translation became the text of choice of many Jews outside of Palestine and served as a background to most of the New Testament citations of the Old Testament.

The History of Christianity #40
Our Scripture verse today is 2 Timothy 3:16 which reads: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."
Our quote today is from William Barclay. He said: "It is the simple truth to say that the New Testament books became canonical because no one could stop them doing so."
Today, we are looking at "The Deposit of the Faith" (Part 5) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
The Response: Canon
Marcion's list was the first attempt to put together a "New Testament." When early Christians spoke of "Scripture," what they meant was the Hebrew scriptures, usually in the Greek version known as the Septuagint (Syriac-speaking Christians used a similar translation into their language). It was also customary to read in church passages from one or several of our present four Gospels, as well as from the Epistles -- particularly Paul's. Since there was no approved list, different Gospels were read in different churches, and the same was true of other books. But Marcion's challenge required a response; and thus the church at large began to compile a list of sacred Christian writings. This was not done in a formal manner, through a council or special meeting. What actually happened was that a consensus developed gradually. While very soon there was general agreement as to the basic books to be included in the canon of the New Testament, it took a long time to come to an absolute consensus on every minor detail.
There was no question, except among Gnostics and Marcionites, that the Hebrew scriptures were part of the Christian canon...
in The Bible
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John...they are the four gospels that begin the Christian New Testament. Liberal theologians have flooded academia with notions that the gospels were just gatherings of stories from the life of Jesus well after the time that the historical Jesus actually lived. However, when one investigates the evidence, liberal academia is left in want.
Internal and external clues surround these four documents to allow for us to know beyond reasonable doubt who their authors were, even though the texts do not name them. Who really wrote the gospels? You will see in this exciting episode of Redeeming Truth. You will find that the truth is actually stranger than fiction. Call in at (323) 784-9617 or log on to our free chatboard.
