Quick Overview:

For anyone interested in knowing more about Jesus, study of the four biblical Gospels is essential. Four Portraits, One Jesus Video Lectures offers a thorough yet accessible introduction to the Gospels and their subject, the life and person of Jesus.

A companion to Mark L. Strauss's Four Portraits, One Jesus, these video lectures provide an introduction and summary to every chapter in the widely adopted textbook. Useful for traditional students, students in distance and online-learning courses, and armchair learners alike, these lectures provide a full overview of Jesus' life and ministry from a top New Testament scholar.

With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss illuminates the Gospels, first addressing their nature, origin, methods for study, and historical, religious, and cultural backgrounds. He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme. Finally, he pulls it all together with a detailed examination of what the Gospels teach about Jesus' ministry, message, death, and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels.

A thorough introduction by a master teacher, Four Portraits, One Jesus Video Lectures provides a useful study tool for anyone wanting to better understand the Gospels and their presentation of Jesus.
