“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:3
The Gospels are the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These books teach us facts about Jesus’ life and share valuable lessons we can learn from the true stories of Christ’s life here on earth. To really understand the faith, it’s essential that we read and understand the Gospels. It is through these books that we will come to know Our Lord and truly grasp the depths of His great love for us.
It can be intimidating to dive into these books on our own. It’s a lofty goal to get through all of the Gospels and in order to fully understand what we are reading it’s important to have a guide to provide insight and direction.
The 30-Day Gospel Challenge
That’s why we are so happy to hear about Hallow‘s newest initiative. The 30-Day Gospel Challenge, narrated by The Chosen‘s Jonathan Roumie, will guide listeners through the Gospels by presenting a few chapters each day from July 12 to August 11. Alongside daily Gospel readings, users can enjoy introductions and commentary for each Gospel from theologian and author Dr. Edward Sri, as well as speaker and biblical scholar Dr. Mary Healy. A downloadable Challenge Study Guide and Reflection Questions are also included.Join The 30-Day Gospel Challenge Here!
