An introduction to Mark.

This gospel account is the second book of the New Testament that was probably written by John Mark of Jerusalem sometime between 60-68 A.D. Tradition states that John Mark recorded the words of Peter, who recounted the teachings and events of Jesus Christ to Mark and then organized them into the second gospel account.

The Gospel of Matthew.

One of the first things I want you to notice about Matthew’s gospel is the fact that it’s anonymous.

The Seven Feasts in John’s Gospel.

Up to this point, we have discussed several sevens found in the gospel of John. We have talked about the seven “I AM’s,” “Witnesses,” “Signs,” and the seven proofs of Jesus’ divinity. Each group conveys to us important information about Jesus and His true identity. As John said in John 20:30-31, his primary purpose for writing his gospel account of Jesus was to convince us of Jesus and to instill a saving faith within us. Thus, each of these seven’s is meant to teach us something important about Jesus. In today’s article we are going to look at the Seven Feasts mentioned in John’s gospel and hopefully, gain some insights into their purpose.
