2. "John, Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament" pages 118 titled "Introduction to the Gospel of John" by Andreas. J. Kostenberger. Authorship. Raymond E.Brown contends that John may not have been responsible for all, or parts of the Gospel of John that are available to us today.
The Gospel of John was written between 90-100 ADE. A late book in the New Testament, it deals with different problems than the early Gospel of Mark. Although the book does not try to stray from the special traditions of Christianity (after all, The Christian Church has become strong by this time), the book the Life of Jesus, to meet the needs of the community in 100 ADE. What were the changes that the Johannine Community had to deal with; and, how does the Gospel of John differ from earlier gospels to deal with these changes? The entire new testament is apocalyptic writing, by authors who (obviously) believe in the Parousia.
Matthew, Mark and Luke vii. John’s Gospel – what Jesus meant b. Acts of the Apostles i. Written about the time following Pentecost (for abt 30 yrs) ii. Luke’s sequel to his Gospel c. Epistles – letters i. Pauline (13 books) – dealt with particular problems faced by the early Church and continued proclaiming faith in Jesus to be its central focus 1.
Ultimately, both Matthew and Luke’s gospels have different and and even inaccurate historical information in their birth narratives of Jesus. However, as you saw from the two main examples I gave, the chances are that both authors were more focused on showing the reader just how important Jesus was going to be in relation to Gods kingdom, the Jewish people, as well as the Gentiles. In the end, the gospels were probably not written more to show deeper meaning than accurate historical information. Works Cited Coogan, Michael D., et al.

Observing on the Gospel of Matthew Background This Gospel with precisely placed first as introductory PB and "the Messiah, the son of the living God" (Matthew 16: 16). Although the author's name is not mentioned in the Bible, the nas testimony all the church fathers who first (since c. 130 ad) stated that the Gospel was written by Matthew, one of the disciples of Jesus. If the Gospel of mark was written to the Romans and the Gospel of Luke for Theophilus and all non-Jewish believers the Gospel of Matthew was written to Jewish believers. The Jewish background of this Gospel seems in many ways, including 1. (1) dependency on the revelation, promises, and the prophecy old testament to prove that Jesus was the Messiah who has long anticipated; 2.
The Gospel according to Matthew, although being the first book of the New Testament canon, it was not considered the first gospel genre to be written. Matthew’s gospel gives an account of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In this essay, I intend to look at how the exegesis and interpretation of this gospel may be affected by our understanding of the authorship, its intended readership and where and when it was written. Although all these categories are important in their own right, I will focus more of the intended audience and readership of this gospel. Authorship Mitch & Sri suggest that early in biblical history, everyone from Irenaeus in the second century to Origen and Tertullian in the third century, through to Augustine in the fifth century declared that Matthew the apostle was the author.
Why is it that Jesus is described in many different ways, in the books of the Bible? For example if the four canonical gospels are taken into consideration, it can be seen that Jesus is described and talked about differently in each one. If the other books of the Bible are also read, it can be seen that there is much difference in them also excluding the canonical gospels. I will be comparing the gospel of Mark and the book of Revelation, in how they portray Jesus. It seems that while one is focused more on miracles and Jesus’s human life, the Book of Revelation seems to be more focused on his divinity and his purpose.
The author of Mark gives the basic outline or the “essentials” of Jesus’ biography. Considering this and the fact that Mark was the first gospel written, it should come as no surprise that the gospels of Matthew and Luke borrow from and expand on Mark. However, this does not mean that one should only read Mark because the “essentials” are all that’s needed in order to be a follower of Christ. Matthew and Luke have important material that Mark does not include. They also narrate from different perspective and with a different purpose.
You Promised Us Fulfillment and typology are two major methods that New Testament writers use to connect the Hebrew Bible with the Christian New Testament. Fulfillment deals with the very words of the prophets who, according to New Testament writers, verbally predicted events that the Messiah would accomplish. Typology is similar, yet it is not a prediction, nor does it directly correlate to future events in the manner that fulfillment does. Rather, it is simply an event from the Hebrew Bible that is said to foreshadow another event in the Christian New Testament. Regarding fulfillment, the New Testament writers have identified Jesus Christ as the Messiah.
