  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 445

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

When Matthew left his tax collector’s booth in Galilee to follow Jesus, he became an eyewitness to the Savior’s ministry. His record gives the teachings of Jesus special attention and assures believers that Jesus is the Messiah foretold by so many Old Testament prophecies. For these reasons, his gospel has become the first book of the New Testament.

Mark

  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1988
  • Pages: 241

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Most believe that the gospel of Mark was the first of the gospels to be completed. Many also believe that Mark wrote down what Peter proclaimed. It is a gospel of action; Jesus does things. In addition, the gospel asserts that Jesus is the Son of God and spends a great deal of time with the last journey of Jesus to Jerusalem and the Savior’s suffering and death there.

Luke, a physician, traveled with the apostle Paul on his missionary journeys, sharing the message of Jesus.

The apostle John refers to himself as the disciple “whom Jesus loved.” John was one of the inner circle of disciples, together with Peter and James. As he records the ministry of Jesus, the apostle adds many insights not recorded by the other gospels. John is a simple and clear statement of God’s grace in Christ, written so that readers might believe and have life in Jesus, God’s Son.

  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1988

Paul wrote 1 Corinthians because the congregation faced a series of problems, including the danger of splintering into factions and even lapsing into paganism. Other problems plagued the Corinthians as well. Paul’s letter provided clear advice. The longest chapter, chapter 15, has become one of the most treasured, because it trumpets the victory of Christ’s resurrection from the dead.

  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 255

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Paul wrote 2 Corinthians after he heard a report from Titus about the Corinthian congregation. In this letter Paul compliments the believers for their progress, encourages them to complete the collection for the church in Jerusalem, and defends his ministry against those in the congregation who opposed him and claimed to be super-apostles.

Galatians, Ephesians

  • Author: Armin J. Panning
  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 222

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Paul wrote to the Galatians because their faith was threatened by false teachers who said that salvation was dependent upon both Christ and works. This false gospel, Paul wrote, was “no gospel at all.” Paul wrote his letter to the Ephesians while he was a prisoner and reminded them of what God’s great power and grace has done for believers.

  • Author: Harlyn J. Kuschel
  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1986

Paul wrote these letters while he was in prison. Philippians is a warm, personal letter expressing great joy in Christ. Paul wrote to the Colossians to help them understand Christian truth and ward off false teaching. Philemon is a short note to Paul’s friend, asking him to forgive a runaway slave who had become a believer.

1, 2 Thessalonians

  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1984
  • Pages: 121

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

When he left the Thessalonians to share the gospel elsewhere, the apostle Paul feared that these Christians would be overwhelmed by false teachers, persecution, and temptations. He wrote two letters to encourage them to remain faithful. These letters offer rich hope and remain good reading for Christians faced with challenges to their faith.

Hebrews

  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 1986
  • Pages: 185

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The letter to the Hebrews asserts that God made his final and complete revelation to humanity through Jesus Christ. The letter provides a bridge between the Old and New Testaments, maintains that Jesus is greater than the Old Covenant, and encourages Christians to persevere in spite of their trials and temptations.

James, Peter, John, Jude

  • Author: Mark A. Jeske
  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 347

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The letters of James, Peter, John, and Jude are often grouped together and called the general, or catholic, epistles because they are not addressed to a single congregation. Peter, James, and John are familiar names to readers of the New Testament. The book of Jude warns us against false teachers.
