Outline of the Book of Acts

Acts is another very interesting book in the New Testament that is just after the four gospels. The book starts in a similar way to the gospel of Luke, and therefore on that basis we can conclude that this book was written by Luke, who also wrote his gospel. We get some sections in ActsContinue reading “Outline of the Book of Acts”

Outline of the Gospel of John

John was the last writer of the gospels, his three epistles and Revelation were all assumed to be written late in the first century A.D. Therefore, the Word of God became complete with the apostle John’s writings. John was a disciple and a Jew, and he was one who knew and appreciated the love ofContinue reading “Outline of the Gospel of John”

Outline of the Gospel of Luke

Luke was the only Gentile (non-Jew) writer of the New Testament books, who wrote both this gospel and the Acts. In fact, he also was not one of the twelve disciples of the Lord, or one of the seventy that Jesus Christ had sent for the work of the ministry. Luke was a physician (doctor)Continue reading “Outline of the Gospel of Luke”

Outline of the Gospel of Mark

Mark is the second gospel, written by John Mark. He was not one of the twelve disciples. It is the shortest of the four gospels and he was perhaps the youngest writer of the four gospels and it may well have been the earliest gospel that was written. If we want to benefit from readingContinue reading “Outline of the Gospel of Mark”

Outline of the Gospel of Matthew

The New Testament in the Bible commences with the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Even though Matthew presents Christ mainlyContinue reading “Outline of the Gospel of Matthew”

“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings” (Malachi 4:2).

Outline of Zechariah

“And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced”. John 19:37. This verse is found in Zechariah 12:10, a prophecy made long time ago before the Lord Jesus Christ came to earth as a Man and went to the cross. This interesting book is filled with what is called Messianic propheciesContinue reading “Outline of Zechariah”

Outline of Haggai

It is interesting that there are three prophetical books along with three historical books that deal with the time of the post-captivity of the tribe of Judah. More interesting is that these three books are at the end of their relevant sections, i.e. the last three historical books, and the last three prophetical books. TheContinue reading “Outline of Haggai”

Outline of Zephaniah

The “minor prophets” had one or a few things in common. One of these is that they had visions or saw things. Not all of them did, but most had visions. The prophets’ names also have meanings, and when we understand the meaning of their names, this usually has a link with their messages. TheContinue reading “Outline of Zephaniah”

Outline of Habakkuk

“The just shall live by his faith” (Hab 2:4). The name Habakkuk means “embrace”, or “hug”. The prophet comforts his people and takes them into his arms and hugs them. The verse quoted above has three places in the New Testament, which we will explore shortly, but the message is that the just lives byContinue reading “Outline of Habakkuk”
