CHRONOLOGICAL 4 GOSPELS

#1 CHRONOLOGICAL 4 GOSPEL BIBLE

 CHRONOLOGICAL VERSES DONE IN GROUPS


(Part 1 of 13)

By God’s mercy and grace, to our knowledge, these chronological 4 Gospel studies are unique to these web sites. This Bible study was accomplished after many years of study and work by the authors of this site.

 

WHAT ARE THE CHRONOLOGICAL 4 GOSPELS?

WHAT IS A CHRONOLOGICAL 4 GOSPEL BIBLE?

The Chronological 4 Gospels are the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, with a few verses from Acts and 1st Corinthians, combined in a chronological form.  This enables a person to read and study all four as a unit.  One can read Matthew’s account of an event, and then read the same event in the other gospels.  There are certain events that are only presented in one or two gospels. Now a student of the Bible can read and study how and when all the events occurred in relation to each other. Thus, a person’s knowledge and understanding of God’s Word should increase as the Holy Spirit gives the understanding.

 

Titles on each verse or on passages have also been added.  Most of the verses are dated as to when these may have happened.  Since it is not known for sure the exact year and date that Jesus was actually born, the verses are dated in relation to the birth of Jesus.  For example, Lk 1:5 is dated as happening 16 months before the birth of Jesus.  Mt 27:35 (the crucifixion of Jesus) is dated as happening 33 ˝ years after His birth (or 0 days before 33 years plus 6 months).

 

The Scripture verses were originally taken from the KJV Bible.  Many hours of research was spent examining each word or phrase carefully in relation to the JNT, NASB, NIV, and NKJV. The goal was to present to the student of the Bible the exactness of the KJV verses, enhanced with portions from other versions to add more clarity. This was done by replacing words such as ye with you and yea with yes. The word (TO) may appear replacing the KJV word "UNTO." The words in lower case in parenthesis usually denote words from other Bible translations that have been inserted along with the KJV to help the reader have a fuller understanding.  When the word or words in parenthesis appear in capital letters, this can denote KJV words that are seldom used being replaced with the current English words from another translation, yet in no way changing the meaning of the KJV.  This may also be done because the English word used several hundred years ago could be misunderstood in this generation.  The authors of this work believe the KJV is the most accurate English translation.

 

Example: Mt 1:20. BUT WHILE HE THOUGHT ON (or considered) THESE THINGS, BEHOLD, THE ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED (TO) HIM IN A DREAM, SAYING, JOSEPH, THOU SON OF DAVID, FEAR NOT TO TAKE (TO) THEE MARY (YOUR) WIFE (or do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife-NIV): FOR THAT WHICH IS CONCEIVED IN HER IS (FROM) THE HOLY GHOST (or Holy Spirit).

A person can now turn their own Bible into a chronological Bible. By simply using the to and from as these appear in this text and writing these at the beginning and end of the various verses in their own Bible, one can have a valuable study guide right at their fingertips.

 

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

Daniel looked forward to the coming of the Messiah (the Most Holy, the Messiah, the Prince) and gave the people of his day a time frame when the Messiah could be expected in the seventy weeks-ref Dan 9:24-26. Dan 9:27 speaks of the coming Tribulation, which is the seventieth week. The last book in the Old Testament is Malachi, consisting of four chapters. Verse one of chapter four tells of a day coming when ALL THAT DO WICKEDLY SHALL BE STUBBLE. Verse 2 mentions FEARING MY NAME. Verse 3 relates that the wicked SHALL BE ASHES UNDER THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET. Verse 4 exhorts one to REMEMBER… THE LAW OF MOSES. Verse 5 foretells the coming of Elijah before THE GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD. The last verse of the Old Testament shows what Elijah shall do. Malachi may have been written about B.C. 397. Then there seems to be silence for over 350 years until the appearance of the angel to Zechariah in Luke 1:11. The New Testament begins with the four Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These are the four accounts of the life of Jesus Christ, starting from, "In the beginning." The first three Gospels are similar in many ways, sometimes presenting the same events. These are called the synoptic Gospels, which means view or seeing the whole together. The fourth Gospel, while also presenting a small portion of the events of the first three, also has other events and information not found in the previous ones. The last written word in the Old Testament is curse. The last verse of the New Testament deals with grace.

MATTHEW is the first book of the New Testament and fortieth book of the King James Bible.

 

SPECIFIC INFORMATION
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

Author:

The apostle Matthew (tax collector)

Date written:

Approximately A.D. 37 to 50

OT quotes:

Approximately 93 and additional allusions

Time period:

From Abraham to just before Jesus ascended to heaven

For/to:

Mainly to new Jewish believers

Where:

Possibly written in Judea, perhaps Jerusalem

Statistics:

28 chapters; 1071 verses; 23,684 words

The author: Matthew "Gift of God" belonged to a class of people that was much hated—the tax collectors. As such, he would have been a Roman employee. He is also called Levi, the son of Alphaesus. The Great Commission is given in chapter 28. The many passages taken from the Old Testament in Matthew’s Gospel make it an ideal "bridge" from the Old Testament to the New. Emphasis seems to be on the fact that Jesus is Israel’s promised Messiah—the One that would establish the Kingdom, the Son of David of royal descent. The wise men are mentioned only in Matthew—they came to worship the new born King of the Jews. The gold speaks of His deity. Matthew’s Gospel shows the King being rejected. It shows the cursing of the fig tree, and that Jesus alone has power to forgive and to delegate authority. In Mt 8:1 to 11:1, the power of Jesus (or credentials of the King) is illustrated over disease, demonic forces, men, nature, traditions, death and dumbness. Jesus declares that the Kingdom of God is to be taken away from them. There are woes pronounced upon the Pharisees and a declaration that Jerusalem is to be left desolate till a future time.

 

SPECIFIC INFORMATION
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK

Author:

Mark

Date written:

Approximately A.D. 65 to 70. Some believe A.D. 60.

OT quotes:

Approximately 49

Time period:

From John the Baptist to after the ascension of Jesus into heaven

For/to:

Seems to have been written with the Roman’s mentality in view; it could have been destined for Rome

Statistics:

16 chapters; 678 verses; 15,171 words

The author. The name of John is from the original Hebrew name Yochanan; Mark (the Latin name) (or Roman prefix which was later added) "Polite Shining." It is believed that this is the same one mentioned in the New Testament in Acts 12:12, 25; 13:5, 13; 15:37, 39; Col 4:10; 2 Tim 4:11; Phile. 24; 1 Pe 5:13. He was a Messianic Jewish believer, and his home was in Jerusalem. He was the son of Mary who lived in Jerusalem, whose house Peter came to after he was delivered from prison. He was a travel companion of Peter, Paul, and Barnabas. Some believe he may have been the young man that fled away naked in Mk 14:51,52. He was an associate of the apostle Peter.
About this Gospel. Mark’s Gospel is the shortest of the four. Some of the material in Mark’s Gospel is not chronological.
Emphasis seems to be on Jesus being the Son of God and on discipleship. Jesus is revealed as the Son of God and the suffering, obedient Servant of God the Father, Who gave up His life as a ransom for the sin of others in submission to God’s will. There is no genealogy given in Mark’s Gospel for the "Servant" or references to His virgin birth. The apostles are never recorded as calling Jesus "Lord" in this Gospel. He taught what it meant to follow Him. This and the denial of one’s own self and desires is something that is seldom taught or understood in this lukewarm generation of self-exaltation, selfishness, money, greed, pleasure, prosperity, and plenty. Mark, a book of action, focuses more on the deeds of Jesus rather than His words.

 

SPECIFIC INFORMATION
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE

Author:

Luke (the physician). At a later time, he also wrote Acts as a sequel to this Gospel.

Date written:

Approximately A.D. 58 to 60

OT quotes:

Approximately 80

Time period:

From Adam to after Jesus ascended to heaven

For/to:

Addressed to Theophilus, perhaps a community leader or government or Roman official; perhaps written with the Greek’s mentality in view

Where written:

Unknown; some believe it could be Caesarea or Rome

Statistics:

24 chapters; 1151 verses; 25,944 words

The author: He has been called "the physician" and a fellow laborer of the apostle Paul. He was with Paul during at least part of his second missionary journey-ref Acts 16:10. Note the word "we." Col 4:14 shows Luke with Paul. Again, Luke is with Paul in 2 Tim 4:11. Many more passages could be used. Luke wrote to a Gentile (Theophilus), as a friend writing to a friend. He also wrote the Acts of the Apostles and may have been from the church of Antioch.
About this Gospel: It has slightly more verses and words than Matthew’s Gospel, but less chapters.
Emphasis seems to be on the humanity of Christ. He is the Son of Man that had been rejected by Israel. As a result, Jesus was also preached to the Gentiles. Jesus is presented as the universal Savior—the Savior of the poor and rich, male and female, Jew and Gentile, slave and free. The widow's son being raised at Nain, the rich man and Lazarus, the parables of the lost coin, the prodigal son, the importunate friend, the unjust steward, the good Samaritan, and the praying Pharisee and publican are only recorded in Luke’s Gospel. Luke’s Gospel presents more information about the earthly life of Jesus than do the other Gospels.

 

SPECIFIC INFORMATION
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN

Author:

The apostle John

Date written:

Approximately A.D. 85-90

OT quotes:

Approximately 30

Time period:

From "In the beginning" to just prior to Jesus ascending to be with His Father

For/to:

/////

Where:

Probably written at Ephesus

Why written:

To record Jesus’ signs (20:30,31), so readers would believe in Jesus (20:31)

Statistics:

21 chapters; 878 verses; 19,099 words

The author. John was one of the sons of Zebedee. Salome, his mother, was very devoted to the Lord. He may have been the most beloved of all the apostles by the Lord. He speaks of himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved. He was one of the three (John, James, and Peter) chosen to be with the Lord in the transfiguration. John again was included in the three when Jesus raised the daughter of Jairus from the dead. He wrote five books of the New Testament. The canon of Scripture that began over 1500 years earlier would be brought to a close with the Revelation, which John also wrote.
He may have been the only apostle of the original twelve that died a natural death.
About this Gospel: Matthew, Mark, and Luke’s Gospels are similar in some respects. John’s Gospel, however, appears to add information that is omitted in the other three. Approximately 784 verses cover material that is not presented in the first three Gospels, while approximately 94 verses are covered in part or by subject. Much of the information contained in the first three Gospels is not repeated in John’s Gospel. It has been said that John’s Gospel may be the simplest and easiest to read. It is an excellent place for a new convert to begin reading the Bible. John mentions at least three passovers (2:23; 6:4; 13:1). There may have been a fourth (5:17). Israel had rejected Jesus. By the time this Gospel was written, the Roman army had come and burned the city. False doctrines had set in. Judaism no longer seems to be in view. The Holy Spirit is revealed in John’s Gospel.
Emphasis seems to be on showing the full deity of Jesus. Jesus is revealed as the Word that was made flesh in chapter one. Near the end of the Gospel in 20:28, Thomas said, "My Lord and my God." Jesus is clearly presented as the Christ (or Messiah), the Son of God through many miracles. He used the term, "I Am" in this Gospel several times. Here are some examples: 6:35-I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. 6:48-I AM THAT BREAD OF LIFE. 6:51-I AM THE LIVING BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN. 8:12; 9:5-I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. 10:7-I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP. 10:9-I AM THE DOOR. 10:11, 14-I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD. 10:36-I SAID, I AM THE SON OF GOD. 11:25-I AM THE RESURRECTION, AND THE LIFE. 12:46-I AM COME A LIGHT INTO THE WORLD. 13:13-YE CALL ME MASTER AND LORD: AND YE SAY WELL; FOR SO I AM. 14:6-I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. 14:10, 11-…I AM IN THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER IN ME. JOHN 14:20-…I AM IN MY FATHER. 15:1-I AM THE TRUE VINE. 15:5-I AM THE VINE. 17:14,16-…I AM NOT OF THE WORLD. 8:58-59-BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM. THEN TOOK THEY UP STONES TO CAST AT HIM. Jesus is revealed as the true God and eternal life.  Jn 20:30, 31 clearly states why this Gospel was written: AND MANY OTHER (miraculous) SIGNS TRULY DID JESUS IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS DISCIPLES, WHICH ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK: BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN, THAT (YOU) MIGHT BELIEVE (or trust) THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST (or Messiah), THE SON OF GOD; AND THAT BELIEVING (or by this trust) (YOU) MIGHT HAVE LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME (or because of Who He is-JNT). Soul winning or evangelism can be said to be the heartbeat of this Gospel.

Jn 1:2.        (HE) WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD.

Lk 1:3.        (Therefore) IT SEEMED GOOD (or fitting) TO ME ALSO, HAVING HAD PERFECT UNDERSTANDING OF ALL THINGS FROM THE VERY FIRST (or having investigated everything carefully from the beginning-NASB), TO WRITE (TO) (YOU) IN (consecutive) ORDER (an orderly account), (YOUR EXCELLENCY) THEOPHILUS,

16 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 1:5.        THERE WAS IN THE (TIME) OF HEROD, THE KING OF JUDAEA, A CERTAIN PRIEST NAMED ZACHARIAS, OF THE COURSE (or priestly division) OF (ABIJAH): AND HIS WIFE WAS (also) OF THE DAUGHTERS OF AARON, AND HER NAME WAS ELISABETH.

Lk 1:6.        AND THEY WERE BOTH RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD, WALKING IN (or observing) ALL THE COMMANDMENTS AND ORDINANCES (or requirements) OF THE LORD (BLAMELESSLY).

Lk 1:9.        ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF THE PRIEST'S OFFICE, HIS LOT WAS TO BURN INCENSE WHEN HE WENT INTO THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD (or he was chosen by lot [according to the custom among the cohanim] to enter the Temple and burn incense-JNT).

Lk 1:10.      AND THE WHOLE MULTITUDE OF THE (ASSEMBLED WORSHIPERS) WERE PRAYING (OUTSIDE) AT THE (HOUR) OF (the) INCENSE (offering or burning).

Lk 1:11.      AND THERE APPEARED (TO) HIM AN ANGEL OF THE LORD STANDING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ALTAR OF INCENSE.

FROM JN 1:3
INTRODUCTION

Lk 1:12.    AND WHEN ZACHARIAS SAW HIM, HE WAS TROUBLED (or startled), AND FEAR (GRIPPED) HIM.
Lk 1:13.    BUT THE ANGEL SAID (TO) HIM, (DO NOT BE AFRAID), ZACHARIAS: FOR (YOUR) PRAYER IS HEARD; AND (YOUR) WIFE ELISABETH SHALL BEAR (YOU) A SON, AND (YOU) (SHALL) (GIVE HIM THE NAME) JOHN.

 ZACHARIAH DOUBTS

16 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 1:18.      AND ZACHARIAS SAID (TO) THE ANGEL, (HOW CAN I BE SURE OF THIS-NIV)?  FOR I AM AN OLD MAN, AND MY WIFE WELL (ADVANCED) IN YEARS.

Lk 1:19.      AND THE ANGEL ANSWERING SAID (TO) HIM, I AM GABRIEL, (I STAND) IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD; AND (I) AM SENT TO SPEAK (TO) (YOU), AND TO SHOW (YOU) THESE GLAD TIDINGS (or good news).

Lk 1:20.      AND, BEHOLD, (YOU) (SHALL) BE DUMB (or silent, or mute), AND NOT ABLE TO SPEAK, UNTIL THE DAY THAT THESE THINGS SHALL (TAKE PLACE), BECAUSE (YOU) (DID NOT BELIEVE) MY WORDS, WHICH SHALL BE FULFILLED (or come true) IN THEIR (PROPER TIME).

Lk 1:21.      AND (meanwhile) THE PEOPLE WAITED FOR ZACHARIAS, AND (WERE WONDERING) (or surprised) THAT HE (STAYED) SO LONG IN THE TEMPLE.

Lk 1:22.      AND WHEN HE CAME OUT, HE COULD NOT SPEAK (TO) THEM: AND THEY (REALIZED) THAT HE HAD SEEN A VISION IN THE TEMPLE: FOR HE BECKONED (or kept making signs, or communicated…with signs) (TO) THEM, AND REMAINED SPEECHLESS (or unable to speak).

AN ANGEL SENT TO MARY

9 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 1:26.      AND IN THE SIXTH MONTH THE ANGEL GABRIEL WAS SENT FROM GOD (TO) A (TOWN) OF GALILEE, NAMED NAZARETH,

Lk 1:27.      TO A VIRGIN ESPOUSED (or engaged, or pledged) TO A MAN WHOSE NAME WAS JOSEPH, OF THE HOUSE (or descendants) OF DAVID; AND THE VIRGIN'S NAME WAS MARY.

Lk 1:28.      AND THE ANGEL CAME IN (TO) HER, AND SAID, HAIL (or Greetings, or Rejoice, or Shalom), (YOU) THAT (ARE) HIGHLY FAVORED, THE LORD IS WITH (YOU): BLESSED (ARE) (YOU) AMONG WOMEN.

Lk 1:29.      AND WHEN SHE SAW HIM, SHE (Mary) WAS (greatly) TROUBLED AT HIS SAYING (or words), AND CAST IN HER MIND (or wondered) WHAT (KIND) OF SALUTATION (or greeting) THIS (MIGHT) BE.

Lk 1:30.      AND THE ANGEL SAID (TO) HER, FEAR NOT, MARY: FOR (YOU) (HAVE) FOUND FAVOR WITH GOD.

Lk 1:49.      FOR HE THAT IS MIGHTY (HAS) DONE TO ME GREAT THINGS; AND (indeed) HOLY IS HIS NAME.

Lk 1:50.      AND HIS MERCY (EXTENDS TO) THEM THAT FEAR HIM (IN EVERY GENERATION).

Lk 1:51.      HE (HAS) (DONE MIGHTY DEEDS) WITH HIS ARM; HE (HAS) SCATTERED (or routed) THE PROUD IN THE IMAGINATION OF THEIR HEARTS (or scattered those who are-NIV) (secretly proud) (in their inmost thoughts-NIV) (from their heart).

Lk 1:52.      HE (HAS) (BROUGHT) DOWN THE MIGHTY (or rulers) FROM THEIR (THRONES), AND (has) EXALTED (or raised up) THEM OF LOW DEGREE (or those who were humble-NASB).

Lk 1:53.      HE (HAS) FILLED THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS; AND THE RICH HE (HAS) (SENT AWAY EMPTY).

Lk 1:54.      HE (HAS) (HELPED) HIS SERVANT ISRAEL, IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIS MERCY;

Lk 1:55.      AS HE (SPOKE) (or promised) TO OUR FATHERS, TO ABRAHAM, AND TO HIS (OFFSPRING) FOR EVER.

Lk 1:56.      AND MARY (STAYED) WITH (ELIZABETH) ABOUT THREE MONTHS, AND (then) RETURNED TO HER OWN HOUSE.

Lk 1:60.      AND HIS MOTHER ANSWERED AND SAID, (NO!); BUT HE SHALL BE CALLED JOHN.

Lk 1:61.      AND THEY SAID (TO) HER, THERE IS NONE OF (YOUR) (RELATIVES) THAT IS CALLED BY THIS NAME.

Lk 1:62.      AND THEY MADE SIGNS TO HIS FATHER, (to find out) (WHAT) HE WOULD HAVE (THE CHILD) CALLED.

Lk 1:63.      AND HE (MOTIONED) FOR A WRITING (TABLET), AND WROTE, SAYING, HIS NAME IS JOHN. AND THEY (WERE ALL ASTONISHED).

Lk 1:64.      AND HIS MOUTH WAS OPENED IMMEDIATELY, AND HIS TONGUE LOOSED, AND HE (SPOKE), AND PRAISED GOD.

Lk 1:65.      AND FEAR (or awe) CAME ON ALL (the neighbors) THAT DWELT (AROUND) ABOUT THEM: AND ALL THESE (MATTERS) WERE (TALKED ABOUT) ABROAD THROUGHOUT ALL THE HILL COUNTRY OF (JUDEA).

Lk 1:66.      AND ALL THEY THAT HEARD THEM (KEPT) THEM UP IN THEIR HEARTS (or mind) (or wondered about it), SAYING, WHAT (KIND) OF CHILD SHALL THIS (turn out to) BE!  AND THE HAND OF THE LORD WAS WITH HIM.


ZACHARIAS PROPHESIES

6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 1:67.      AND HIS FATHER ZACHARIAS WAS FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, AND PROPHESIED, SAYING,

Lk 1:79.      TO GIVE LIGHT TO (or shine on) THEM THAT SIT IN DARKNESS AND IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH, TO GUIDE OUR FEET INTO THE WAY OF PEACE.
