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 First Corinthians, combined in 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, but others are presented in all 4. 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 AND DATING

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 16 months before the birth of Jesus. Mt 27:35 (the crucifixion of Jesus) is dated at 33 ½ years after His birth (or 0 days before 33 years plus 6 months). It is generally agreed by most born-again Bible scholars that Jesus was born somewhere between 6 B.C. to 2 B.C. and was crucified when He was about 33½ years old.

THE SCRIPTURES

The Scripture verses were originally taken from the KJV Bible. Many hours of research were 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 accomplished 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 OF SCRIPTURES

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).

TWO WAYS TO DO A CHRONOLOGICAL BIBLE

There are two ways a Chronological 4 Gospel Bible can be done. The simplest way is to take groups of verses and put them either side-by-side or let them follow each other. This is featured in the Chronological 4 Gospels #1 and #4.

It has been found that in the beginning, it is as if all 4 Gospels were originally one complete book.  Then the Lord gave part to Matthew, part to Mark, part to Luke, and part to John. The 4 Gospels are not 4 separate accounts of the life of Jesus, but rather one single account that was divided up and given to 4 people to present. Thus, not only do the verses from the 4 Gospels blend and harmonize together, but even the individual words and groups of words also blend together.

This advanced chronological 4 Gospel study takes a big step further than just putting groups of verses together. It takes the individual verses that are presented in more than one Gospel and breaks them down into parts. Thus, you may notice some verses have labels, such as Mt 17:1 (pt 1), Mt 17:1 (pt 2), etc. The “pt” stands for part. Then the individual verses, or words, or parts of verses from each account are combined together. All this is done in chronological order as well. By God's tender mercy, an advanced, word by word, phrase by phrase chronological 4 Gospel study—presented in these Chronological 4 Gospels numbers 5, 6, and 7.

Following is an example:

  Mt 17:2 (pt 1).   AND (there) (as they watched)

  Lk 9:29 (pt 1).   AND AS HE PRAYED,

  Mt 17:2 (pt 2), ref Mk 9:2 (pt 4).   (He) WAS TRANSFIGURED (or began to change form-JNT) BEFORE THEM:

  Lk 9:29 (pt 2).   THE (APPEARANCE OF HIS FACE BECAME DIFFERENT-NASB),

  Mt 17:2 (pt 3).   AND HIS FACE DID SHINE AS THE SUN,

  Mt 17:2 (pt 4), ref Lk 9:29 (pt 3).   AND HIS (CLOTHING) WAS (or became as) WHITE

  Mt 17:2 (pt 5).   AS THE LIGHT.

  Lk 9:29 (pt 4).   (or as bright as a flash of lightning-NIV).

  Mk 9:3.   AND HIS (CLOTHES) BECAME SHINING (or radiant), (EXCEEDINGLY) WHITE AS SNOW; SO AS NO  (LAUNDERER) ON EARTH CAN WHITE (or bleach) THEM.



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. Then 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 two mentions FEARING MY NAME. Verse three relates that the wicked SHALL BE ASHES UNDER THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET. Verse four exhorts us to REMEMBER…THE LAW OF MOSES. Verse five 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.

AN ANGEL APPEARS TO JOSEPH
LEADING UP TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Mt 1:18.……………………………  NOW THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST (or Yeshua the Messiah-JNT) (WAS AS FOLLOWS): WHEN AS HIS MOTHER MARY WAS ESPOUSED (or
                                                             engaged, pledged, or betrothed) TO (be married to) JOSEPH, (but) BEFORE THEY CAME TOGETHER (or were married), SHE WAS FOUND (to be)
                                                             (PREGNANT) OF THE HOLY GHOST (or Holy Spirit).
Mt 1:19.……………………………  THEN JOSEPH HER HUSBAND (to be), BEING A (RIGHTEOUS) MAN (or a man who did what was right-JNT), AND NOT WILLING TO MAKE HER
                                                            A PUBLIC EXAMPLE (or public shame, or disgrace), (HAD IN MIND) TO PUT HER AWAY(QUIETLY) (or secretly).
Mt 1:20.……………………………  BUT WHILE HE (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).
Mt 1:21.……………………………  AND SHE SHALL (GIVE BIRTH TO) (or bear) A SON, AND (YOU) (SHALL) CALL HIS NAME JESUS (or Yeshua, [which means ‘Adonai saves’,-
                                                             JNT]: FOR (it is) HE (Who) SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS.
Mt 1:22……………………………   NOW ALL THIS (HAPPENED) (or took place), THAT IT MIGHT BE FULFILLED WHICH WAS SPOKEN OF THE LORD BY THE PROPHET,
                                                             SAYING,
Mt 1:23.……………………………  BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL (CONCEIVE), AND SHALL (GIVE BIRTH TO) (or bear) A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMMANUEL,
                                                            WHICH BEING (TRANSLATED) IS, GOD (is) WITH US.
Mt 1:24.……………………………  THEN JOSEPH BEING RAISED (or awoke, or arose) FROM SLEEP DID AS THE ANGEL OF THE LORD HAD (TOLD) (or commanded) HIM, AND
                                                             (he) TOOK (Mary) (TO) HIM (as) HIS WIFE:

 

JOSEPH AND MARY WENT TO BETHLEHEM
JUST PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 2:1.……………………………   AND IT CAME TO PASS IN THOSE DAYS, THAT THERE WENT OUT A DECREE FROM CAESAR AUGUSTUS, THAT ALL THE (Roman)
                                                            WORLD (or Empire) SHOULD BE TAXED (or a census should be taken-NASB).
Lk 2:2.……………………………   (AND THIS TAXING [or census, or registration] [the first of its kind-JNT] WAS FIRST MADE WHEN CYRENIUS [or Quirinius] WAS GOVERNOR OF
                                                            SYRIA.)
Lk 2:3.……………………………   AND ALL WENT TO BE TAXED (or to register for the census-NASB), EVERY ONE INTO HIS OWN CITY (or town).
Lk 2:4.……………………………   AND JOSEPH ALSO WENT UP FROM GALILEE, OUT OF THE (TOWN) OF NAZARETH, INTO (JUDEA), (TO) THE CITY OF DAVID, WHICH IS
                                                            CALLED BETHLEHEM; (BECAUSE HE WAS OF THE HOUSE AND LINEAGE [or family] OF DAVID:)
Lk 2:5.……………………………   TO BE TAXED (or in order to register-NASB) (along) WITH MARY HIS ESPOUSED WIFE (or who was engaged to him-NASB), BEING (PREGNANT)
                                                            WITH (a) CHILD.
Lk 2:6.……………………………   AND SO IT WAS, THAT, WHILE THEY WERE THERE, THE DAYS WERE (COMPLETED) THAT SHE SHOULD (GIVE BIRTH).

 

JOSEPH KNEW HER NOT
PRIOR TO THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Mt 1:25.…………………………… AND KNEW HER NOT (or he did not have sexual relations-JNT, or union with her) TILL SHE HAD BROUGHT FORTH (or given birth to) HER
                                                            FIRSTBORN SON: AND HE CALLED (or gave Him) HIS NAME JESUS.

 

THE BIRTH OF JESUS
0 DAYS

Lk 2:7.……………………………   AND SHE (GAVE BIRTH TO) HER FIRSTBORN (child, a) SON, AND WRAPPED HIM IN SWADDLING CLOTHES, AND LAID HIM IN A
                                                            (FEEDING TROUGH); BECAUSE THERE WAS NO ROOM (or space) FOR THEM IN THE INN.

 

THE SHEPHERDS AND THE ANGELS
0 DAYS
AFTER THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Lk 2:8……………………………   AND THERE WERE IN THE SAME COUNTRY (or countryside, or region nearby) SHEPHERDS (STAYING OUT) IN THE FIELD, KEEPING WATCH
                                                           OVER (or guarding) THEIR FLOCK BY NIGHT.
Lk 2:9……………………………   AND, LO, THE ANGEL OF THE LORD (suddenly) (STOOD BEFORE) THEM, AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD SHONE (AROUND) THEM: AND
                                                          THEY WERE (GREATLY) AFRAID.
Lk 2:10…………………………… AND THE ANGEL SAID (TO) THEM, (DO NOT BE AFRAID-NIV): FOR, BEHOLD, I BRING YOU GOOD (NEWS) OF GREAT JOY, WHICH SHALL
                                                           BE TO ALL PEOPLE.
Lk 2:11…………………………… FOR (TO) YOU IS BORN THIS (very) DAY IN THE CITY (or town) OF DAVID A SAVIOR (or Deliverer), WHICH IS CHRIST (or Messiah) THE LORD.
Lk 2:12…………………………… AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN (TO) YOU (or here is how you will know-JNT); (YOU) SHALL FIND THE (BABY) WRAPPED IN SWADDLING
                                                           CLOTHES, (and) LYING IN A (FEEDING TROUGH).
Lk 2:13.……………………………AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS WITH THE ANGEL A (GREAT COMPANY) OF THE HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD, AND SAYING,
Lk 2:14.……………………………GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST (heaven), AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN (or peace among people of good will-JNT, or
                                                           peace to men on whom His favor rests-NIV).
Lk 2:15.……………………………AND IT CAME TO PASS, AS THE ANGELS WERE GONE AWAY FROM THEM INTO HEAVEN, THE SHEPHERDS SAID ONE TO ANOTHER,
                                                           LET US NOW GO EVEN (straight) (TO) BETHLEHEM, AND SEE THIS THING WHICH IS COME TO PASS, WHICH THE LORD (HAS) MADE
                                                           KNOWN (TO) US.
Lk 2:16.……………………………AND THEY (HURRIED), AND FOUND (their way to) MARY, AND JOSEPH, AND THE (BABY) (Who was) LYING IN A (FEEDING TROUGH).
Lk 2:17.……………………………AND WHEN THEY HAD SEEN (HIM), THEY (SPREAD) ABROAD THE (STATEMENT) WHICH WAS TOLD THEM CONCERNING THIS CHILD.
Lk 2:18.……………………………AND ALL THEY THAT HEARD IT (WERE AMAZED) AT THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE TOLD THEM BY THE SHEPHERDS.
Lk 2:19…………………………… BUT MARY KEPT (or treasured up) ALL THESE THINGS, AND (KEPT MULLING) THEM (over) IN HER HEART.
Lk 2:20.……………………………AND THE SHEPHERDS RETURNED (back), GLORIFYING AND PRAISING GOD FOR ALL THE THINGS THAT THEY HAD HEARD AND SEEN,
                                                           (which was just) AS IT WAS TOLD UNTO THEM.

 

FROM THIS POINT ON THE DATING COVERS FROM THE BIRTH OF JESUS.
EXAMPLE, 8 DAYS WOULD INDICATE 8 DAYS AFTER JESUS WAS BORN.

 

THE CIRCUMCISING OF THE CHILD
HIS NAME WAS CALLED JESUS
8 DAYS

Lk 2:21.……………………………AND WHEN EIGHT DAYS WERE (COMPLETED) FOR THE CIRCUMCISING OF THE CHILD (or on the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise

                                                          JERUSALEM, TO PRESENT HIM TO THE LORD;
Lk 2:23…………………………… (AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF THE LORD, EVERY [first-born] MALE THAT [OPENS] THE WOMB SHALL BE CALLED HOLY [or is to be
                                                           consecrated-NIV] TO THE LORD;)
Lk 2:24.……………………………AND (also) TO OFFER A SACRIFICE ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH IS SAID IN THE LAW OF THE LORD, A PAIR OF TURTLEDOVES, OR

Lk 2:26.…………………………… AND IT WAS REVEALED (TO) HIM BY THE HOLY GHOST (or Spirit), THAT HE SHOULD NOT (DIE), BEFORE HE HAD SEEN THE LORD'S
                                                            CHRIST (or Messiah).
Lk 2:27.…………………………… AND HE CAME (or was prompted) BY THE SPIRIT INTO THE TEMPLE (courts): AND WHEN THE PARENTS BROUGHT IN THE CHILD JESUS,
                                                           TO (CARRY OUT) FOR HIM AFTER THE CUSTOM OF THE LAW (or what the…Law required-NIV),
Lk 2:28.…………………………… THEN (SIMEON TOOK) HIM UP IN HIS ARMS, AND BLESSED (or praised) GOD, AND SAID,

Lk 2:32.…………………………… A LIGHT TO LIGHTEN (or bring revelation to) THE GENTILES, AND THE GLORY OF (YOUR) PEOPLE ISRAEL.
Lk 2:33.…………………………… AND JOSEPH (the child’s father) AND HIS MOTHER (WERE AMAZED) AT THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE SPOKEN OF HIM.
Lk 2:34.…………………………… AND SIMEON BLESSED THEM, AND SAID (TO) MARY HIS MOTHER, BEHOLD, THIS CHILD IS (DESTINED) (TO CAUSE) THE FALL AND
                                                           RISING AGAIN OF MANY IN ISRAEL; AND (He) (will become) A SIGN WHICH SHALL BE SPOKEN AGAINST (or opposed);
Lk 2:35.…………………………… ([YES], A SWORD SHALL PIERCE THROUGH [YOUR] OWN SOUL ALSO,) (all this will happen in order-JNT) THAT THE (inmost) THOUGHTS OF

Mt 2:7……………………………    THEN HEROD, WHEN HE HAD (SECRETLY) CALLED THE WISE MEN (or Magi), (ASKED) OF THEM DILIGENTLY (WHEN) THE STAR
