Gospels

Introduction

This study is designed to give the student an extensive view of the New Testament. In studying the geography of the world, we begin with a globe that shows us the various continents and oceans. Then we note how these continents are divided into countries, and the countries into provinces or states. If we reverse this method of study, we make it very difficult.

Concerning the Gospel

Q: Are there two Gospels taught in the New Testament, “The Gospel of the Kingdom and the Gospel of the Grace of God?” A: No. There is only one Gospel, the Gospel of the Grace of God, though it has its various aspects of which the Kingdom is one. It is possible to distinguish between the Gospel as preached now and the message that will be delivered in a future dispensation when the Church has been taken away, but I do not think the distinction is absolutely clear in the New Testament.

God always works with what we have, not with what we don’...

There are some passages in Holy Scripture which seem to contain in a line or two, an entire volume of most precious truth. The verse which we have just penned is one of such. It is part of our Lords memorable discourse with Nicodemus, and it embodies, in a condensed form, a very full statement of Gospe...

Nicodemus

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: the same came to Jesus by night”(John 3:1,2). When we turn in the Bible to John chapter three we find recorded for our learning the interesting interview between the Lord and Nicodemus—a dialogue full of the very deepest and most important instruction.
