Outline of contents
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1.14)
When the stage of history is finally prepared, the Father sends His Son, the promised Seed, to redeem us. After long centuries, but at precisely the right moment (see Galatians 4.4), the long awaited Messiah was born. And “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1.14) – an event more momentous than the very creation of the Universe itself.
We tell the story of Jesus’ birth, childhood, baptism and temptation, and His public ministry up to His final entry into Jerusalem. We pause along the way to explain how He was both fully Man and fully God, and why He came to Earth. We also look at how the four Gospels each portray Jesus and His ministry in a unique way – Matthew is our teacher, Mark our dramatist, Luke our historian and John our theologian. They respectively portray Jesus as King, Servant, Perfect Man and God made flesh.
