165C New Testament Intensive: The Gospels
In the beginning . . . so begins John’s Gospel account. Just as the Pentateuch are the books of beginning for the Old Testament, so the Gospels are the books of beginning for the New Testament. God promised that Messiah would come. For 400 years between the testaments, God worked in history to prepare the way for His plan of redemption to be finalized. God who transcends time, stepped into time. God the Son took on flesh to reveal the Father’s plan. The Gospels reveal the Messiah who came to fulfill the Old Testament’s promise of redemption. The person for blessing had come!
