All 4 Of The Gospels Speak To Us
The Gospels record Christ's ministry to the four groups of people then and now in the world.
? Matthew speaks to the Jews and the deeply religious of our day.The Jews who loved the Scriptures and the prophecies of God. They would only listen to one of their own.
? Mark spoke to the Romans. These were the leaders and leadership and action impressed them. They knew nothing of Scriptures but everything of power. So to this group comes the action packed Gospel of the powerful ministry of Christ. Mark uses the word "and" 1,375 times to tie together the endless actions of Christ. Like our modern successful business man and woman, they want a God who can powerfully meet their deepest needs.

So the best known verse is the best of all offer that God loves all and offers all -- His Son as their only hope!
