SFX: THUNDER ♪ MUSIC>>I LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON THIS SPECIAL, SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY TO OPEN YOUR BIBLE, AND WOULD YOU DO THAT FOR ME? GET YOUR BIBLE READY, AND YOUR NOTEPAD, I HAVE ONE RIGHT HERE, WITH MY PEN AND PENCIL, AND GET READY TO TAKE SOME PHENOMENAL NOTES, FROM DOCTOR DAVID. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MANY PEOPLE STOP ME IN PLACES WHERE EVER I GO, AT THE CRACKER BARREL OR THE CHURCH, OR SPECIAL EVENTS AND THEY WILL SAY, I SET MY CLOCK FOR THE DOCTOR DAVE PROGRAM. THEY DON’T SAY HERMAN BUT THEY WILL SAY THE DOCTOR DAVID SHOW, AND I AM THERE TO HELP HIM, SO, AND WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE THIS GUY. I AM BLESSED BECAUSE A LOT OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT REALIZE, THIS GUY, HE IS MARRIED TO OUR DAUGHTER. SO GET THAT INTO YOUR THINKING BECAUSE WE ARE BLESSED. THIS IS SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU.>>GOOD TO BE HERE.>>AND THIS WOULD BE SIN NOT THE THEOLOGY AND AN INTRODUCTION AND GIVE US THE INTRODUCTION. AND YES, HE’S BEGINNING TO NOT OFF, AND LET ME TELL YOU, AND WE ARE HAVING AND TOUCHING THE SUBJECT, I AM TELLING ON CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, YOU, YOU DO NOT GET IT, I WAS SAYING IT, THE OTHER DAY, SOMEBODY CAME UP TO ME AND I SAID, WHAT IT IS ABOUT THE DOCTOR DAVE SHOW THAT YOU LIKE? AND THEY SAID IT IS THE BIBLE, AND THEY LISTEN AND THEY HEAR THE BIBLE. AND I STOOD THERE AND I WAS GOING, THAT WOULD BE THE DRAW, DAVE. AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU WILL NEVER HEAR ON CHRISTIAN TELEVISION.>>AND THIS WOULD BE ACADEMIC AND THIS WOULD BE WHAT YOU NEED.>>WHAT DO YOU MEAN ACADEMIC?>>YOU WILL NOT HEAR THIS UNLESS YOU GO TO BIBLE COLLEGE OR LESS A SECULAR COLLEGE AND WHERE THEY WANT TO TELL YOU THE BIBLE IS NOT FROM GOD. SO, AND THIS IS SOMETHING TO BE AWARE OF, AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE 18-25-YEAR-OLDS>>THE MILLENNIALS?>>THEY WILL BE HEARING ALL OF THIS.>>BUT WHAT WOULD BE THE SYNOPTIC THEOLOGY? AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?>>AND THAT WOULD DEFINE THE TERM IT MEANS, SIMILAR, AND, AND THE SAME AS TOGETHER, IT WOULD BE ABOUT MATTHEW, MARK AND LUKE AND THEY WOULD BE SIMILAR IN STYLE, IN THE ARRANGEMENT AND THE WORDING. AND YOU SAY WHAT WOULD BE WRONG WITH THAT? AND NOTHING WRONG, BUT THIS WOULD BE A PROBLEM, AND THIS WOULD BE CALLED THE SYNOPTIC PROBLEM. A GOOD BIBLE TEACHER WILL SAY I WILL PREACH TODAY ON THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS, AND YOU WILL SAY THESE THREE ARE ALIKE, AND THE FOURTH ONE IS VERY DIFFERENT OF THE SAME MATTER, BUT THE SAME THING AND IT IS DIFFERENT. THAT WOULD BE THE BOOK OF JOHN. EACH OF THE GOSPEL MESSAGES WERE INSPIRED BY GOD, AND WHY DOES IT SEEM THAT THE INFORMATION WAS COPIED, AND THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME SAME WORDING, AND IN SOME PLACES, THE INFORMATION IS DIFFERENT. AND THAT WOULD BE A PROBLEM FOR THE SKEPTICS. AND THIS WOULD BE THE SYNOPTIC PROBLEM, FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO GIVE THE IDEA THAT THE BIBLE IS NOT INSPIRED BY GOD.>>AND WHY WAS IT DONE THAT WAY?>>THERE WERE MANY REASONS,>>BUT GIVE ME FIVE.>>GOD WANTED IT THAT WAY THAT WOULD BE NUMBER ONE, THE UTMOST AND THE FOREMOST, THIS IS THE WAY THAT GOD WANTED IT, AND GOD THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT HE INSPIRED THE MEN TO WRITE IT DOWN, AND WHAT HE WANTED THEM TO SAY BECAUSE THEY HAD DIFFERENT AUDIENCES, AND THE LETTERS WERE CIRCULATING, TO THE DIFFERENT AUDIENCES, AND WITH A DIFFERENT EMPHASIS ON THE SAVIOR, TO BRING TO LIGHT ANOTHER ASPECT OF WHO JESUS IS.>>AND WAS THE PERSONALITY ENTERING INTO THAT INSPIRED WORD?>>YES, I DON’T BELIEVE INSPIRATION, WOULD BE A PROCESS OF ROBOTICS, GOD GIVES THAT PERSON THROUGH THE SPIRIT TO WRITE WHAT GOD’S WANT TO BE WRITTEN AND THROUGH THE STYLE, AND THE PERSONALITY, OF THE WRITER. AND MAYBE THE SAME WAY BUT NOT TO AN INFALLIBLE DEGREE, BUT GOD MIGHT HELP ME TO PREACH A SERMON OR TO WRITE SOMETHING, AND PEOPLE MIGHT SAY, HOW DID YOU KNOW? THAT IS WHAT I NEEDED TODAY, AND I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF IT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WORKING THROUGH SOMETHING, HE HAS A WAY OF TAKING WHAT IS AND DOING SOMETHING THROUGH THIS AND A MIRACULOUS WAY, AND THE LORD IS USING THE TALENT AND THE SKILLS AND PERSONALITY AND THE QUIRKS, AND THE WRITING STYLES OF THE WRITER, AND IT IS ANOINTED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE WORD OF GOD WOULD BE CHOSEN.>>LET’S BEGIN.>>AND THE BIBLE SAYS IN SECOND TIMOTHY, IT IS A PRIMARY PASSAGE, ALL SCRIPTURE IS FROM THE ENDS RATION OF GOD, AND IT IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE AND FOR REPROOF, AND FOR CORRECTION AND FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT THE MAN OF GOD WOULD BE COMPLETE, AND THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK READ THAT WOULD BE AND THAT WOULD BE AN ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL VIEWPOINT. AND IT WOULD BE THOSE WHO WOULD BE ATTACKING IT FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS, AND THEY SAY TO DISMISS THE SCRIPTURES, AND GIVE IT SOMETHING ELSE, AND IT CAN BE A CHURCH. AND THE BIBLE THEY SAY IS NOT INSPIRED, AND WE WANT TO REPLACE IT WITH SCIENCE AND WITH A NEW PHILOSOPHY, AND THEY WANT TO REPLACE IT WITH HER SECULARISM.>>AND THAT COULD BE ALSO LIKE THE CONSTITUTION? AND THE LIBERAL SAY, IT WAS WRITTEN FOR A TIME, AND THAT, AND THE TIME WE HAVE NOW, IT DOES NOT MATCH UP WITH WHAT THEY MEANT.>>YES, AND YES, ALMOST, THEY SAY, AND WHAT THEY MEAN,IT IS SO SUBJECTIVE AND UNCLEAR, AND THEY ARE CHANGING WHAT THEY DO ME.>>IT WOULD BE A LIVING DOCUMENT?>>AND THAT MEANS THAT THEY CAN REINTERPRETED CONSTANTLY, AND THE CONSTITUTION IS NOT FROM GOD BUT IT IS AN INSPIRED DOCUMENT, AND YOU KNOW, THE COUNTRY WAS BASED ON THE CONSTITUTION, THAT WOULD BE THE FOUNDATION OF THE COUNTRY AND THAT WOULD BE AN OBLIGATION THAT WE SHOULD FOLLOW IT.>>SCALIA PAST, AND HE SAID WE NEEDED TO ADHERE TO THE CONSTITUTION. AND TO NOT CHANGE.>>AND YES, HE WAS AN ORIGINALIST, AND WHAT THIS MEANS, WHEN THEY WROTE IT, THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD APPLY TODAY AND NOT WHAT WE WOULD TAKE IT TO MEAN.>>AND HOW CAN THAT WORK FOR THE CHURCHES AND UNIVERSITIES AND THE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITIES AND SO FORTH, AND THEY ARE LOOKING AT THIS DIFFERENTLY?>>AND IN THE SECULAR UNIVERSITIES, THEY WANT TO DISMISS THE MORAL DEMANDS OF SCRIPTURE FOR MANY DECADES, AND FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT BELIEVE IN FREE SEX OR HOMOSEXUALITY AND DIVORCE AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS THAT HAVE INHABITED THE LIFESTYLE OF THE UNSAVED WORLD, THEY HAVE WANTED TO FOREVER DISMISS THE SCRIPTURES AND ONE WAY THEY CAN DO IT AND THEY SAY, GOD DID NOT DO IT, AND THIS IS THE EVIDENCE. AND THE CHURCHES DO THIS AND THEY ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ALWAYS BEING CONTRARY TO THE CULTURE, AND CHURCHES WANT TO BE LIKED BY THE COMMITTEE.>>AND THEY WANT THE MONEY OF THE OFFERINGS AND FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE. THE MONEY TO PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE.>>THAT COULD BE A POTENTIAL BUT WE WILL GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT, AND THEY THINK, AND THEY WILL THINK KINDLY, AND IF WE TRY TO REACH THEN WE CANNOT MAKE THEM AN ENEMY, AND WE HAVE GOT TO TAKE OUT THESE THINGS THAT MAKE THEM AN ENEMY SO WE WILL GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.>>BUT WHY DON’T YOU FEEL THAT WAY?>>I DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO ALTER THE BOOK. LAND THE WORD OF GOD, AND I CANNOT REWRITE THE WORD. I CANNOT EDIT THE WORD.>>IS IN A LIVING? AND SO, THAT COULD BE LIVING TODAY?>>IT IS ALIVE, BUT THIS IS NOT MORPHING, AND THE BIBLE MEANS LIVING, IT IS VIBRANT AND FULL OF LIFE, BUT THIS IS NOT CHANGING INTO SOMETHING TO FIT THE CULTURE. AND WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS IT IS INSPIRED BY GOD, WE SHOULD BELIEVE, BUT THIS IS WHY THEY ATTACK IT AGGRESSIVELY, IN THE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITIES AND THE SECOND ONES, AND EVEN IN AND EVEN IN THE EVANGELICAL CHURCHES, AND WHERE THEY DO NOT AND THEY ARE NOT AWARE OF HOW IMPORTANT THE DOCTRINE IS.>>THE INSPIRATION LET’S GO THERE.>>AND THE GREEK WORDS,>>AND THESE DIFFICULT WORDS, IT MEANS, THAT GOD IS THE BREATH OF GOD, AND GOD IS GIVING IT TO HIS BY HIS SPIRIT, IT WOULD BE A WORD, THAT WE DEFINED IN THE CONTEXT,>>AND SO, AND WILL WE BE, AND CAN WE FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT REALLY ENTAILS?>>NO, AND WE CANNOT AND THAT WOULD BE A SUPERNATURAL EXCHANGE, AND THAT DOES NOT APPEAR OUTSIDE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, AND THAT IS NOT A GREEK WORD.>>BUT WHAT DID YOU SAY?>>IT IS NOT A GREEK WORD?>>IT IS NOT FOUND IN GREEK LITERATURE, AND SO, THAT WORD, THEO’BREA-THOS , IT WOULD BE A CONTRIVED WORD TO DESCRIBE THE PROCESS, AND THIS IS INEXPLICABLE AND IT CANNOT BE EXPLAINED, AND THIS WOULD BE INEXPLICABLE, THAT GOD CAN MOVE SOMEONE, AND THEY WILL WRITE WHAT HE WANTS TO SAY, BUT THIS WOULD BE IN THEIR STYLE. AND THEIR PERSONALITY. AND HOW DOES GOD DO THAT? BECAUSE HE IS GOD, AND HE IS NOT LIMITED.>>DAVID MARTIN NUMBER 31?>>AND THE BIBLE SAYS NO PROPHECY OF SCRIPTURE WOULD BE OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION FOR PROPHECY NEVER CAME BY THE WILL OF MAN, BUT HOLY MEN OF GOD SPOKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. AND THAT CAN BE OFTEN BROUGHT UP BY THE PEOPLE THAT MIGHT SAY, YOU CANNOT PERSONALLY INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURE AND THE BIBLE SAYS YOU CANNOT DO IT BY PERSONAL INTERPRETATION THIS IS NOT WHAT IT IS SAYING, AS YOU READ IT, HE TALKS ABOUT THE SOURCE OF THE SCRIPTURES AND THE ORIGIN, THIS DID NOT COME OUT OF SOMEBODY’S PERSONAL INTERPRETATIONS AND THEY WROTE IT DOWN. AND THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS, THIS IS NOT COMING OUT OF SOMEBODY’S MIND.>>SO YOU CANNOT CHANGE ANYTHING?>>NO, BECAUSE IT CAME FROM GOD AND NOT BY MEN, AND THIS IS FROM THE HOLY MEN OF GOD AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT WHICH BE, AND THIS WOULD BE ANOTHER REFERENCE, FOR WHAT INSPIRATION WOULD BE.>>BUT WHAT DO WE HAVE THE WORD HERE?>>AND THIS IS TO BE CARRIED AWAY, AND CARRIED ALONG, AND IF I CARRIED YOU, I WOULD PICK YOU UP AND I WOULD TAKE YOUR I WANTED TO GO BUT I WOULD TAKE YOU LIKE YOU ARE FULLY INTACT AND I WOULD PUT YOU WHERE YOU ARE, AND YOU AND YOU WOULD BE HERMAN ALL OF THE TIME WHEN I PUT YOU BACK DOWN, THE HOLY MEN OF GOD WERE MOVED BY THE SPIRIT FOR THE LORD TO GET THEM WHERE HE WANTED THEM TO BE WITH CONTENT BUT THEY STAYED INTACT AS TO WHO THEY WERE THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS. AND THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE THE INSPIRATION.>>THE NEXT ONE?>>AND THIS MEANS AND WHAT WOULD BE THE PROBLEM WITH THE SYNOPSIS? AND DID ALL OF THEM, MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, DID THEY USE A SOURCE DOCUMENT AND DID THEY ALL REFERENCE IT? OR DID THEY USE EYEWITNESS DOCUMENTS? AND MANY PEOPLE, AND THOSE PEOPLE WERE AROUND, AND DID THEY WRITE IT DOWN AND THEN THEY WOULD PASS AROUND, AND IN MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE AND THEY COLLECTED IT, OR DID THEY RELY UPON THE ORAL TRADITION. AND THEY WOULD GO INTO THE COMMUNITY, THEY WOULD GET ALL OF THE WITNESSES TO GATHER, AND THEY LISTENED TO WHAT WAS SAID, AND MAYBE YOUR MOTHER HEARD, WHEN SHE WAS THERE 20 YEARS AGO. AND ALL OF THESE THINGS TRY TO EXPLAIN WHY ARE THE BOOK SO SIMILAR, AND WHY ARE THEY DIFFERENT?>>WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE PEOPLE THAT SAY WHY DO YOU MESS WITH IT, JUST TAKE THE WORD OF GOD AND GO ON.>>AND THESE THINGS CREATE DOUBT, AND SOMEONE THAT MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND, THEIR THEOLOGY, AND THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND LINGUISTICS, AND THEY DON’T HAVE A HISTORY IN THE WORD, AND THEY DON’T READ THE BOOK BY JOSH MCDOWELL, THIS WOULD BE A CLASSIC PRESENTATION OF THE AUTHORITY OF THE SCRIPTURES, EVIDENCE THAT DEMANDS A RESPONSE. AND THIS CAN MAKE YOU SAY, AND THIS WOULD BE INSPIRED BY GOD, BUT WHY WOULD THERE BE A SOURCE DOCUMENT? AND DID THEY USE THIS? AND LIKE THE DEVIL SAYS IN THE GARDEN, DID GOD SAY THAT? AND JUST A MOMENT OF DOUBT, THAT OPENED HER UP TO WHAT SHE KNEW WAS REALLY RIGHT, AND GOD HAD PROVIDED EVERYTHING, AND LIKE YOU CANNOT EAT OF EVERYTHING? AND THEN SHE HAD A NEW INTERPRETATION THROUGH THE DOUBT.>>LET’S GO TO DAVID MARTIN, AND GO TO 35.>>AND THAT WOULD BE NUMBER 10 FOR ME, THE MATERIAL OF THE GOSPEL, IT WAS COMPOUNDED THROUGH A PROCESS THAT INCLUDED NUMBER ONE, THE EVENTS THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED, THAT WOULD BE IMPORTANT, AND THESE ARE NOT FAIRYTALES AND THEY DID HAPPEN. THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGING THE WORDS TO THE AUTHORS REMEMBRANCE, LIKE JESUS SAID HE WOULD DO, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT INSPIRING THE WRITERS TO RECORD CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THESE EVENTS, SO WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT THE SAME STORIES, THEY MIGHT NOT TELL THE SAME DETAILS, LIKE YOU WERE TELLING HERE, AND FOR THE PROGRAM, AND IF SHARON HAD OF SETTING, MAYBE SHE WOULD’VE SAID OTHER HIGHLIGHTS.>>SHE DOES.>>AND SHE WOULD’VE LEFT OUT SOME THINGS, BUT MAYBE THEY WOULD BE SAYING, THEY ARE TELLING THE TRUTH, BUT YOU TOLD THIS FROM DIFFERENT VANTAGE POINTS AND IT STILL IS THE TRUTH. AND THE BIBLE SAYS, THEY COULD WRITE IT FROM THERE. MEMORY>>NUMBER 11?>>AND THIS MAY BE HAVE BEEN COMPILED THROUGH THE INCORPORATION OF THE WRITTEN OR THE ORAL TESTIMONY SOLD WITNESSES AND COLLECTIVE REPORTS, CIRCULATING AS BOOKS. I SAY THAT BECAUSE, NEITHER ONE OF THESE THINGS, IT IS NOT A QUALIFIER AND THIS DOES NOT CANCEL IT INSPIRATION. AND MAYBE THERE WAS AN ORAL TRADITION OR WRITTEN DOCUMENTS, AND MAYBE SOMEBODY SOUGHT WHEN JESUS FED THE 5000, AND MAYBE THEY SAW IT. IT DOES NOT MEAN THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS CANCELED BY ALL OF THIS HE WOULD HAVE PUT THIS INTO IT. AND THE NEXT THING WOULD BE IMPORTANT, THAT WOULD BE NO ACTUAL EVIDENCE OF ANY SOURCE DOCUMENT OR ANY WRITTEN TESTIMONY OR BOOKS IN CIRCULATION. AND EVEN THOSE THESE WOULD BE A THEORY, AND THEY DON’T NECESSARILY CANCEL OUT INSPIRATION, IT WOULD SIMPLY BE PURE, IT WOULD BE PURE SPECULATION TRYING TO ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN WHY MATTHEW AND MARK AND LUKE ARE LIKE AND JOHN IS NOT. AND WHY WOULD THEY TELL THE STORIES A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY? THAT IS A PROBLEM. THAT IS WHY THEY SAY THE SYNOPTIC. PROBLEM>>ALSO IN LUKE 1-4, AND THIS IS WHAT HE ALLUDES TO, THERE IS A REALITY OF THE DAY AND THERE WAS INFORMATION FLOATING AROUND. AND MANY HAD TAKEN IN HAND, TO SET IN ORDER A NARRATIVE OF THOSE THINGS THAT HAD BEEN FULFILLED AMONG US, JUST AS THOSE FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST AND THEY WERE THE EYEWITNESSES AND THEY WERE THE MINISTERS OF THE WORD.>>SO THERE IT IS.>>IT SEEMS GOOD TO ME, HAVING PERFECT UNDERSTANDING OF ALL THINGS FROM THE VERY FIRST TO WRITE TO YOU AND ORDERLY ACCOUNT, THEOPHILUS, THAT YOU MIGHT KNOW THE CERTAINTY OF THE THINGS IN WHICH WE YOU ARE INSTRUCTED.>>WHO WAS THEOPHILUS?>>HE WAS THE FRIEND OF LUKE, HE WAS A RISING CHRISTIAN. AND HE SAID, YES, THERE WOULD BE STORIES BEING CIRCULATED AND MANY PEOPLE WANT TO WRITE IT DOWN, NOW LET ME MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT CORRECT, AND THEN HE SAYS, IT IS INSPIRED BY GOD. FOR THE TRUE ACCOUNT. THAT WOULD BE THE ONLY HAD, MAYBE THERE WAS SOME WRITTEN ACCOUNT THAT WERE BEING PASSED AROUND, THAT PEOPLE WANTED TO PRESERVE THE STORY.>>ALL RIGHT THE NEXT ONE?>>THE LORD CAN INSPIRE AND MOVE THROUGH SUPERNATURAL REVELATION, THE LORD CAN INSPIRE YOU THROUGH RESEARCH, AND HE CAN INSPIRE YOU THROUGH EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS, AND HE CAN INSPIRE YOU THROUGH PERSONAL MEMORY. AND THOSE THINGS DO NOT CANCEL OUT OF THE SUPERNATURAL.>>ALL RIGHT, LET’S GO, LET’S GO TO 43.>>>>AND THAT WOULD BE NUMBER TWO? THAT WOULD BE ON THE SECOND SHEET.>>AND THERE ARE 600 VERSES, ONLY 50 OF THOSE WOULD BE COMPLETELY UNIQUE TO MARK, AND THEY ARE ALMOST FOUND WORD FOR WORD THE OTHER GOSPELS, 480 VERSUS ARE ALSO FOUND IN THE OTHERS, 93% OF THE CONTENT WOULD BE IN AGREEMENT IN THE BOOKS, BUT IN 7%, THEY ARE DIFFERENT. IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY CONTRADICT AND THAT WOULD BE IMPORTANT AND IT IS DIFFERENT, , AND LET’S SAY, AND YOU WOULD SAY, PASTOR DAVID HAD A PLAID SHIRT AND SOME OF YOU MIGHT SAY, IT WAS RED AND WHITE AND BLACK, AND THOSE THINGS DO NOT CONTRADICT BUT THAT WOULD BE DIFFERENT BUT THIS WOULD BE THE SAME SHIRT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. AND IT DOES NOT MEAN THIS WOULD BE IN ACCURATE, IT SEEMS IT IS DIFFERENT AND DIFFERENT HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INFORMATION. AND THE CONTENT OF JOHN IS DIFFERENT, 92% OF THE TIME. AND I MEAN JOHN TELLS A DIFFERENT STORY FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.>>BUT WHAT DOES THAT SAY TO ALL OF THE SKEPTICS?>>THAT SOMETHING WOULD BE WRONG WITH THE FIRST THREE BOOKS, AND EITHER THEY WERE COPYING FROM SOMEBODY, AND THEY MADE IT UP, OR JOHN DID, AND THESE DO NOT AGREE, AND THIS WOULD BE A PROBLEM, THEY SAY. BUT THIS WOULD BE WHERE WE FILL IN THE BLANKS AND THIS IS ONE OF THE GOSPELS TOGETHER PAINT A FULL PICTURE OF JESUS CHRIST, AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS MORE AS WE TALK ABOUT THE BOOKS.>>THIS WOULD BE LIKE A CANVAS?>>YES, LIKE A SERIES OF BOOKS, LIKE VOLUMES ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR AND THIS WOULD BE THE STORY OF CHRIST, AND THIS WOULD BE IN A SEQUENCE. THIS WOULD BE MARK, MATTHEW, AND JOHN AND WHAT THEY SAW, AND WHEN YOU SEE THESE THINGS YOU WILL SEE THE FULL THREE-DIMENSIONAL PICTURE OF JESUS. AND THEY ARE SIMPLY ONE-DIMENSIONAL THAT WOULD BE THE WAY YOU SEE IT.>>AND THAT WOULD BE THE TERM SYNOPTIC?>>AND YES, BUT JOHN IS ONE, AND JOHN IS NOT ONE OF THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS.>>AND WHEN YOU ADD THAT IN BUT WHAT WOULD THAT DO?>>AND THAT WOULD FILL IN THE PICTURE AND JOHN WAS WRITING, NOT THE ROMANS, AND NOT TO THE JEWS, JOHN WAS WRITING TO EVERYBODY. HE WAS THE SON OF GOD, AND MATTHEW AND MARK AND LUKE SEE HIM DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE OF THEIR AUDIENCE.>>LET’S MOVE ONWARD.>>AND MATTHEW, THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THE CLAIMS, THAT MATTHEW FIRST WROTE IN THE ARAMAIC, AND ALL OF THE GREEK VERSIONS WOULD BE TRANSLATIONS, THIS WOULD BE A CLAIMANT IT WOULD BE NO EVIDENCE OF IT ANYWHERE. AND THIS WOULD BE AN EXPLANATION FOR WHY THESE THINGS ARE ALIVE, AND MATTHEW WROTE IT DOWN IN ARAMAIC AND THEN HE WOULD ALSO AND GREEK.>>THAT WOULD BE SPECULATIVE?>>YES, ONLY AND THIS IS WHAT WE HEAR.>>.>>MARK CAME FIRST, THEN THE OTHER DOCUMENTS, AND MATTHEW AND LUKE, AND THEY COPIED FROM THE OTHER ONES. AND MARK SEEMS TO HAVE THE MOST COMMON MATERIAL AND THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME, VERSES, AND MARK PROBABLY CAME FIRST, THERE IS A QUEUE DOCUMENT, AND THEY DON’T KNOW WHERE IT IS. AND THAT WOULD BE SPECULATIVE. AND THEY EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCES. AND THAT WOULD BE “MARK-Q,” AND WE ALSO HAVE MARK-Q , BUT THIS WOULD BE INVENTED. IT WOULD BE AN INVENTED DOCUMENT IT MAKES THE POINT. IT WOULD BE A THEORETICAL ARGUMENT. IT WOULD BE EVIDENTIARY. AND WHEN THEY SAY–“Q” THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT IS AND IT DOES NOT EVEN EXIST, BUT THIS IS THEORETICAL.>>CONTINUE.>>AND MATTHEW SAYS, THERE WAS ANOTHER DOCUMENT, “M” IT WOULD BE THE MATTHEW DOCUMENT, AND THEN LUKE HAD THE “L” DOCUMENT, AND THIS IS WHY IT IS DIFFERENT, AND THEY WROTE DOWN FROM THE DIFFERENT ONES, AND THEY REALLY DON’T EXIST, BUT THIS IS ANOTHER WAY TO EXPLAIN IT. AND MATTHEW AND JOHN WERE EYEWITNESSES TO THE WORDS OF CHRIST AND THIS WOULD BE VERY IMPORTANT TO MATTHEW AND JOHN ARE MENTIONED AS BEING VERY PRESENT THROUGH THE LIFE OF CHRIST AND THE INFORMATION WOULD BE PERSONALLY I WOULD MISSING IT, AND WE KNOW THAT FOR SURE. AND MARK AND LUKE, THEY HAD ACCESS TO MATTHEW AND JOHN AND PETER, SO ALL OF THEM, MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, JOHN, AND THEY WERE DIRECTLY EYEWITNESSES, OR THEY HAD A RELATIONSHIP CONTEMPORARY WITH A PERSONAL EYEWITNESSES.>>GO AHEAD.>>THE HOLY SPIRIT REFRESH THEIR MEMORY AND JOHN 14:26, THAT WOULD BE A PROMISE FROM JESUS AND HE INSPIRED THEM AND WHAT WE SAW EARLIER. AND I SEE NO PROBLEM AT ALL WITH THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS, IT WOULD BE A QUANDARY, IT WOULD BE A CURIOSITY AS TO WHY THEY WOULD BE SIMILAR, AND MAY BE DIFFERENT. AND THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM AND THIS WOULD BE THE HOLY SPIRIT INSPIRING THEM TO WRITE A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY, TO A DIFFERENT AUDIENCE, OR A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.>>AND WOULD THEY SAY, THAT YOU WOULD BE AVAILABLE TO TAKE ANYTHING? AND THEREFORE YOU WOULD NOT BE QUESTIONING WHAT SOME SCHOLARS DO?>>I WOULD SAY BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD TO BE INSPIRED BY GOD, AND IF IT SAYS IT WOULD BE INSPIRED, I WOULD TAKE THAT AS THE BOTTOM LINE, AND I DO NOT GO BELOW THAT AND THEN I WANT TO FIGURE OUT HOW DOES THIS REFLECT THAT IS RATION. AND IF I CAN UNDERSTAND, AND WHY WOULD I CAST THAT ASIDE? SO THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND, MATTHEW WROTE TO THE JEWISH AUDIENCE PRESENTING JESUS AS THE MESSIAH, AND THAT WOULD BE FROM THE CONTENT.>>ALL RIGHT STAY RIGHT THERE, FOR A MOMENT, DAVID,AND MATTHEW WROTE TO THE JEWISH AUDIENCE, AND JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH? THE TERM, JEWISH AUDIENCE– AND WE GET MESSED UP DO WE?>>AND YES HE IS WRITING IT, AND THE JUDAISM AS BEING OF THE SIZED, AND HE SAYS, THAT JESUS REALLY IS THE MESSIAH PROMISED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. AND MATTHEW WAS FULL OF THE OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES, AND THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS BEING FROM THE LINE OF DAVID. AND BECAUSE THE AUDIENCE IS JEWISH AND HE EMPHASIZES THE MESSIAH.>>. GO AHEAD>>AND WHEN HE AROSE, HE TOOK THE YOUNG CHILD AND MOTHER BY NIGHT AND THEY WENT INTO EGYPT AND THEY WERE THERE UNTIL HEROD DIED, AND THEN THEY HEARD THIS OUT OF THE PROPHETS, AND I HAVE CALLED YOU OUT OF EGYPT AND THEN JEREMIAH SAYS, AND HE WAS IN THE CITY OF NAZARETH, THAT IT MIGHT BE FULFILLED ABOUT THE PROPHETS, HE SHALL BE A NAZARENE.>>WHY WOULD THAT BE IMPORTANT? BUT WHY?>>THAT COULD FIX THE JEWS, THIS IS THE MESSIAH, THAT ISAIAH, AND JEREMIAH, NEHEMIAH AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE PREDICTED, THIS WOULD BE HIM. AND THE OTHERS DO NOT DO IT, AND MATTHEW BRINGS UP THE DETAILS OF CHRIST THAT SHOWS YOU HE WOULD BE THE MESSIAH.>>CONTINUE.>>AND THAT HE WROTE TO THE ROMAN AUDIENCE, AND THEN HE SAYS, JESUS WAS A SUFFERING SERVANT, THE BOOK OF MARK, AND EVEN THE SON OF MAN DID NOT COME TO BE SERVED, BUT TO SERVE AND TO GIVE HIS LIFE AS A RANSOM FOR MANY.>>CONTINUE.>>LUKE WROTE TO THE REGARDING ENDS, JESUS WAS THE PERFECT MAN, THE GREEKS HONORED MEN, SO THE CHILD GREW AND BECAME STRONG IN THE SPIRIT AND HE WAS IN THE DESERT UNTIL THE DAY WAS MANIFESTATION OF ISRAEL, JESUS SAYS, TODAY SALVATION IS COME TO THE HOUSE BECAUSE HE IS A SON OF ABRAHAM FOR THE SON OF MAN HAS COME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST. AND THE TERM FOR LUKE WOULD BE SON OF MAN. BECAUSE HE WOULD BE THE PERFECT MAN AND JOHN SAYS, ALL MEN, AND HE PRESENTED JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD WHO EVER YOU ARE AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, JESUS IS IT AND JOHN 1:14 AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND HE WAS AMONG US AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH. AND SO WHEN YOU HAVE THESE THINGS TOGETHER MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, JOHN, YOU SEE THEM PORTRAYING GODLIKE SCRIPTURE. AND IN EZEKIEL IT SAYS, THE BIBLE SAYS, THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, AND EACH HAD THE FACE OF A MAN, LUKE, AND THEY HAD THE FACE OF A LION, AND THEY HAD THE FACE OF AN OX, AND THEY HAD THE FACE OF AN EAGLE. AND THE FIRST LIVING CREATURE WAS LIKE A LION, AND LIKE A FOX, AND THE THIRD LIKE UNTO A MAN, AND LIKE AN EAGLE. SO WHEN YOU SEE THE GOSPELS, THE LION, HE WOULD BE MET YOU, THE MESSIAH, THE LINE OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, MARK WOULD BE THE OX, THE SUFFERING SERVANT THE ROMANS, LUKE WOULD BE THE PERFECT MAN, THE FACE OF THE MAN AND ALSO, JOHN HE WOULD BE THE EAGLE, THE DEITY OF CHRIST. SO THAT PROBLEM FOR ME, IT IS NOT A PROBLEM, FOR THE BIBLE BELIEVERS THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM BUT THAT WOULD BE A PECULIARITY, IT IS A DISTINCTION AND A TRADE, AND LIKE MATTHEW AND MARK AND LUKE THE FOUR GOSPELS, THEY ARE VERY, VERY SIMILAR, AND ALMOST IDENTICAL, AND SOMETIMES THEY DO DIFFER BUT JOHN IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, BUT HE TELLS THE SAME STORY AND AS WE READ THE FOUR GOSPELS WE WILL SEE THIS, THAT JESUS IS GOD FOR EVERY MAN ON THE PLANET, REGARDLESS OF YOUR ETHNIC BACKGROUND AND RELIGIOUS HERITAGE OR YOUR RACE, JESUS IS THE GIFT FROM GOD HIMSELF AND THE FORGOT PRESENT THE STORIES OF JESUS IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU HAVE A MULTIPLE WITNESS ACCOUNT, AND IF THESE PEOPLE THAT WILL AGREE EXACTLY TO EVERY SINGLE DETAIL, THEY ARE OFTEN THROWN OUT AND THEY WERE REHEARSED, AND THESE PEOPLE SHARE THEIR STORIES THAT WOULD BE BY THE HOLY GHOST BRINGING TO LIGHT THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF CHRIST SO WE HAVE A RELIABLE AND AUTHENTIC AND DEPENDABLE ACCOUNT OF WHO JESUS IS AND WHAT HE CAME TO DO AND WHAT HE CAME TO DO WAS TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THE LOST. THAT WOULD BE ME AND THAT WOULD BE YOU. AND I WANT TO IMPLORE YOU TO BELIEVE THE GOSPELS, AND TO BELIEVE THE STORY OF JESUS CHRIST AND TO TRUST HIM AS YOUR SAVIOR, JESUS SAYS I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME. AND THE GOSPELS WILL TELL HIS STORY YOU WILL READ THEM THIS WEEK AND BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS.>>SECOND TIMOTHY 2:15, STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT DOES NOT NEED TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH. THIS WOULD BE THE WORD OF TRUTH, INSPIRED BY GOD. GO TO THIS, TODAY. GOT A BLESS YOU. GOODBYE.>>MUSIC>>CAPTIONING PROVIDED BY THE STAFF OF THE CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK IN CLEARWATER FLORIDA. ♪ MUSIC ♪ MUSIC ♪ MUSIC ♪ MUSIC ♪ MUSIC ♪ MUSIC
