Transcript of New Testament Class.Week 1
Jesus The Kingdom of God has come in Jesus Invasion of the Kingdom Mark 1:15 The Gospels: Four Perspectives on the Life of Jesus Just the Facts MATTHEW:
Jesus, the Messiah Jewish Tax Collector; An original disciple of Jesus Author: Matthew Date: 40-50 AD Matthew demonstrates that Jesus is the King and has come to establish the Kingdom of God, as proclaimed and promised in the Old Testament.
He quotes the Old Testament more than any other Gospel writer and appeals to messianic promises which his Jewish audience would understand. Summary: MARK:
Jesus, the Servant Traveling companion of Peter who most likely recorded
Peter's sermons and memories of the life of Jesus. Author: John Mark Date: 40-50 AD Mark shows Jesus rolling up His sleeves and building His Kingdom as the Son of Man.
Mark's style is fast-paced and he moves from scene to scene as Jesus goes throughout the land demonstrating that the Kingdom of God has entered the world. Mark focuses on the miracles, signs and wonders, and deliverance ministry of Christ. Summary: Luke:
Jesus, the Son of Man Luke was a doctor and a traveling companion of Paul. Author: Luke Date: 60 AD Luke presents Jesus and the Kingdom in a way that the non-Jewish people of his day could understand.
Like Matthew, Luke presents both the Kingdom teaching of Jesus, as well as the demonstration of Kingdom power through miracles. Luke emphasizes Jesus' power through the Holy Spirit to demonstrate that Jesus is King and is establishing His Kingdom rule. Summary: John:
Jesus, the Son of God John was one of the original disciples of Jesus,
who later became John, the Apostle of Christ. Author: John Date: (Traditionally) 90 AD
Perhaps as early as 70 AD John's purpose is to demonstrate that Jesus, the King, is also the Son of God.
John begins his book with the great revelation that Jesus, the Word, was God and is God and has now come to earth in human form. In John, we see Jesus claiming equality with God on four different occasions (8:24; 8:58; 10:30; 10:36). Interestingly, John has more stories of Jesus encountering individuals than any of the other Gospels. Summary: MATTHEW:
Jesus, the Messiah Acts: New Beginnings Acts:
Establishing the Kingdom Author: Most likely, Luke Date: 63 AD While the Roman and Jewish leaders believed that they had killed the "Pretender King", little did they know that His Kingdom and His Presence would be continued through those who followed after Him.
Filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and under the leadership of the Disciples (now Apostles), the early Church, continued to proclaim and demonstrate the Kingdom of God through words and miraculous signs and wonders. The early Church was being established with the formation of local assemblies in Jerusalem, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the earth (Acts 1:8). Summary: ". . . but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." Acts 1:8 Genealogy Jesus the Promised Messiah-King Traces Jesus' human lineage from Abraham, through King David, and to His birth to Mary and Joseph No Genealogy Traces Jesus' human lineage from His earthly father back to King David, then to Abraham, from to Abraham to Adam, from Adam to the son of God. Shows Jesus' divine lineage as the Word of God, who was with God in the beginning, and is, in fact, God. Signs and Wonders “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” Healings Now when John, while imprisoned, heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples and said to Him, “Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you hear and see: the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. “And blessed is he who does not take offense at Me.” Deliverance “If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand? “If I, by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you." Specific Demonstrations Bread of Heaven

the Power of the Kingdom John 12:31 Jesus
Defeats the Power of Satan Hebrews 2:14-15 “Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. Jesus Establishes
the Kingdom Rule Matthew 28:19-20 Matthew Matthew 1:1-17 John John 1:1-15 “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Luke 20:9-18 Mark Luke Luke 3:23-28 Jesus'
Death and Resurrection Jesus' Explanation of His Ministry Luke 4:18-21, Isaiah 61 1 Corinthians 15:20-28 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death. For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all. Matthew 11:2-6 Matthew 12:26-29; Luke 11:18 Luke 6:20-49; Matthew 5-7 "And He began to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard and rented it out to [a]vine-growers, and went on a journey for a long time. At the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, so that they would give him some of the produce of the vineyard; but the vine-growers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. And he proceeded to send another slave; and they beat him also and treated him shamefully and sent him away empty-handed. And he proceeded to send a third; and this one also they wounded and cast out. The owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.’ But when the vine-growers saw him, they reasoned with one another, saying, ‘This is the heir; let us kill him so that the inheritance will be ours.’ So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What, then, will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy these vine-growers and will give the vineyard to others.” When they heard it, they said, “May it never be!” But Jesus looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written: ‘The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone’? Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.” Revelation 5:9-10 "And they sang a new song, saying, 'Worthy are you to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.' "
