The Book of Acts tells us how the early church faced the challenge of taking the gospel to the world. It tells how the gospel made its way westward until at last it reached Rome. It is a book of people and places. You will find this study simple yet stimulating and satisfying. It is a fast-moving survey of those stirring events which changed everything.

In his gospel, Matthew shows that Jesus is the long-expected Messiah of Israel, the only one with a right to the throne of David.
The book does not claim to be a complete biography of Christ’s life on earth. It begins with His genealogy and early years, then jumps to the beginning of His public ministry when He was about thirty. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Matthew selects those aspects of the Savior’s life and ministry which proclaim Him as God’s Anointed One—for that is what the title “Messiah” means.
The book moves toward a climax—the trial, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus. And in that climax, of course, is laid the foundation for man’s salvation. That is why the book is called a “gospel”—not so much because it explains the way by which sinful man may receive eternal salvation, but rather because it describes the sacrificial work of Christ by which our salvation was made possible.
We do not know when Matthew wrote this book, whether it was AD 40 or 70 or at some time in between. And even if we did, this information would not add to our enjoyment of it or benefit from it. We have purposely avoided the so-called “critical problems”—that is, the questions concerning the sources and history of the text. Our purpose is to concentrate on the exposition of the text as it is found in our Bibles.
This course and commentary seeks to stimulate independent study and meditation. Most of all, it is aimed at creating in the reader’s heart an intense longing for the return of the King.View full product details

What this world needs is a Servant – and Mark presents Jesus Christ to us as the perfect Servant, showing us Jesus moving swiftly from one event to another leading up to when He gives 'His life a ransom for many.'
The Gospel of Mark emphasizes the servant nature of Jesus Christ, concentrating on the things that Jesus did and where He went.It is the shortest of the Gospels and probably the first one written. Mark presents the action vividly and roughly in the order that the events happened. Mark explains Jewish customs so his readers can have a better understanding. His goal is to depict the perfect Servant, the Son of God, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.View full product details

The skeptic Renan called Luke’s Gospel “The most beautiful book in the world.” And so it is! The Lord Jesus is especially presented to us by Luke as the friend of “publicans and sinners,” the outcasts of society.
We see Him breaking the shackles of national prejudice to show His tenderness, compassion and sympathy to those outside of the nation of Israel. We find that women are given frequent and honorable mention, something quite alien to custom at the time. Luke’s evident goal is to present to us Jesus as “the Son of Man” and as the Savior of mankind. A study of this Gospel is bound to be a heartwarming experience.View full product details

John the apostle was an old man when he wrote his Gospel. It was written years after the other three Gospels of Christ had been put into circulation. Already the church was being plagued by error and attacks upon the Person and work of God’s beloved Son.
For this reason, John concentrates on presenting the miracles and words of Jesus and then interpreting them for his readers. John selects his material so that you ". . . may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name" (John 20:31).View full product details
