In 2013, I set out to produce a weekly video on the life of Jesus as narrated by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. 4 years and 156 episodes later, here is the final episode of my humble contribution to the body of Messiah. I hope this series has been an encouragement to your faith in the Lord Jesus!

The four Gospels contain the beautiful and unrivaled record of the words of Jesus of Nazareth.

Those words are His precious, holy food for our famished souls. Those words are our only fountain of life everlasting (John 6:63,68). Those words can both bind up our wounds and afflict our self-centered hearts - all for the sake of love. No poet, philosopher, or...

In the last two articles (read them here and here), I’ve written about how every choice, word, action, and moment of our lives should not end in self-exaltation but rather rebound to the glory of Christ. In today’s potently narcissistic culture, modern Christianity has presented a version of Jesus that exists for our pleasure and comfort instead of us existing for His fame and renown among the nations. The...
