Discipleship Pastor's Teaching Notes:


"The Most Amazing Journey: Connecting the Gospels in an Unforgettable Chronology"



Dean .... What motivated you to do this study? 

A few reasons:

  1. To complement the main sermon series we are going through in the Book of Luke;
  2. To help our people see how the four gospels fit together to give the fullest picture of our Lord Jesus;
  3. To help our people gain a better understanding of what a growing disciple looks like under the training of Christ;
  4. To deepen and widen our prayer life as we reflect on the wonder, words and work of the Lord Jesus.


How can a reader use it for personal study? 

To take time to memorize the 30 main headings provided in order to better understand the ministry of Jesus for His these recorded three years, and to see how the gospel accounts they may study fit into that chronology.


How can a small group/Sunday School class leader use these files? 

Take a minimum of five weeks - but certainly longer - to follow the chronology given and the stories related, and add any additional stories/passages that might fit the heading.


How would you suggest they be used for a sermon series? 

Maybe in several ways:

  1. As a background intro lesson before starting a new series in one of the gospels;
  2. By taking one set of three, or six, headings and making them into a series by itself.


Anything else you'd like to share?

I was fascinated how the study helped bring some new light to my understanding of several passages. For example, as John describes Jesus' Judean ministry before His Galilean ministry, he records Jesus' healing of the official's son in Capernaum in John 4:46-54. As Luke begins his description of Jesus' Galilean ministry in Nazareth in Luke 4, he quotes Jesus' commentary on the Isaiah passage He just read by saying: "Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, 'Physician, heal yourself.' What we have heard you did at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well." I guess I had not picked up on the correlation between an earlier miracle in Capernaum, and this reference while in Nazareth. 


Hope this is helpful,

  1.  Communion


  Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” Genesis 1:26


 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”  Isaiah 6:8


“But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me”… When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.  John 15:26, 17:1-5

*Prayer - Lord, thank you that you are eternal, and by faith in you I have been given eternal life.
