Lesson Notes: The Four Evangelists

4 evangelists

The Gospels are the heart of Scripture and are the primary place where we learn about Jesus!  This week, we’re going to focus on them: the authors, audience, lessons and character of each.  Simply read each of the four pages about the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and then quiz your saints by playing the Who’s Who in the Gospel game.

To prepare, you’ll need to cut apart the quiz cards and sort out the ones you want to use.  There are cards at two levels and a few bonus cards with information that’s not included in the text, just in case you have some experts in your “class.”

One of the helpful things about this game is that it’s portable and could easily be played in the car as a review game.  After you have tried it once at home, just store the cards and the answer sheet in a zip-loc in your car.  The next time your family is on a car ride of more than a few minutes, pull out a few cards and see how much your captive audience remembers from the lesson.


What does this have to do with Jesus

In case it’s not obvious, Pope Pius X sums it up nicely:

Since we desire to renew all things in Christ, nothing would please us more than to see our beloved children form the habit of reading the Gospels not merely from time to time, but every day, for in them above all we learn how all things can and must be renewed in Christ.
