The New Testament begins with four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Our English word “gospel” translates the Greek term euangelion, meaning “good news.” Each gospel is a collection of writings presenting Jesus’ life, works, teachings, passion, and resurrection. For this exercise you will read the end of each gospel describing the burial and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
As a reminder: The readings are displayed as, Book (Chapter: first line – Chapter: last line)
Matthew (27:62 – 28:20), end of chapter 27 and all of chapter 28
Mark (15:42 – 16:18)
Luke (23:50 – 24:49)
John (19:38 – 20:29)
Please write a paragraph (6+ sentences) explaining what the four gospels had in common. Another paragraph (6+ sentences) talking about the unexpected things you learned from each Resurrection story.
Finally take 10 minutes in quiet meditation:
