Why does the New Testament contain four Gospels-four different accounts of the same Man? And don't the Gospels contradict one another? Masterful Bible teacher Arthur Pink explains how the four Gospels do not contradict but rather collaborate in order to provide us with a deeper, multifaceted description of the person of Jesus Christ. In Matthew, we see Jesus as Messiah and King of the Jews. In Mark, we are introduced to the Servant of Jehovah. In Luke, we see the human Jesus as the Son of Man, Adam's descendant. Finally, in John, we thrill to the supernatural Jesus who is undoubtedly the Son of God. No believer can truly know Jesus without having an understanding of the four distinct roles He fulfilled in His time on earth. Pink's in-depth look at the four Gospels will boost your faith and bring you ever closer to a Savior who is fully human, fully divine, and above everything, Lord of all.
Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in Nottingham, England. He became a Christian in his early twenties, and, desiring to grow in his knowledge of the Bible, emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute, in Chicago, Illinois. From 1925 to 1928, Pink served in Australia, before returning to England, and then to the United States the following year. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. In 1922, Pink started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in Scriptures, which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. In 1934, Pink returned to England, and within a few years, turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. After his death, his works were republished by the Banner of Truth Trust and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living.
