An Overview of the Life of Jesus

The Life of Jesus – An Overview

Introduction

  • If you were going to write someone’s biography, how would you structure it? Compare how the Gospels tell of Jesus from the Overview Chart. What does this tell us?
  • Note the Limited Geography and Historicity of Jesus’ earthly life. The Gospels are not works of fiction but eye witness accounts of actual events – some of which can be verified externally. (See Luke 1:1-4 and Luke 2:1-2)
  • The purpose of the study is to see how Jesus actually lived, served and taught people.
