The Gospel According to the Gospels – Michael Battle

I encountered Michael Battle’s blog a while ago and I have been reading through a good number of his posts over the last little while, as time permits. I’m going to share one of his posts with you right now, but he has written a lot more. I haven’t read everything that Michael has written, but I’ve read quite a few of his posts and Michael has a beautiful way of expounding upon God’s Word, by very effectively linking together appropriate Scriptures in God’s Word, that is pretty hard to not be able to follow. He accomplishes this a lot better than I do, and that normally only comes about with the gift of teaching, plus the blending of much study and practising of following God’s Holy Word.

Michael has a good number of posts that cover a wide scope of biblical related topics. If you take the time to look around, I’m sure you’ll see more than a few that will catch your eye, like they did mine. I can’t personally vouch for all of his posts on all the topics he covers because I haven’t read them all, but what I have read so far, tells me that I will continue to come back for more.

This post of Michaels on “The Gospel According to the Gospels” is a prime example of his teaching abilities and I am sure that you will enjoy and learn from it, as much as I did.


From the four gospels, we read how the Jewish leaders persecuted Jesus and sought to slay him because he had done such things as healing on the Sabbath and claiming that God was his Father.

On more than one occasion they tried to stone him for declaring that God was his Father but he was delivered from them while the stones were still in their hands. On numerous occasions they attempted to end his life but they could not touch him because his hour (the hour in which he would glorify his Father by his death and resurrection) had not yet come.

Luke tells us that at the beginning of his ministry he came to Nazareth where he had grown up. While there, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day according to his custom and read from the book of Isaiah that was handed to him to read. Jesus read from Isaiah 61 and announced among other things that he is the Messiah.
