Course Description BIB114 Christ in the Synoptic Gospels

This course is an introductory study of our Lord's life and times according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. It examines the background of the world into which Christ came "when the time had fully come." It focuses on His life from the Annunciation to the Ascension. It also stresses His message and His method, including His parables and His miracles. Organized around three themes -- the world, the Man, and the message -- this study helps students integrate their understanding of Christ's life and work with a clear commitment to live by the principles He taught and the values He demonstrated.
