Gospel Overtures: Reflections on the Beginnings of the Gospels

One of the most important elements in a good story is the way it begins. In this short course we reflect on the beginnings of the Gospels: Mark 1:1-13, Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2 and John 1:1-18. These texts are like the overture to a symphony, introducing the main themes that will be developed in the rest of the Gospel. The Gospels’ beginnings promise the reader the great prize of understanding – later.
