 Read a Gospel

Get to know Jesus – some of the things he said and did, the way he lived, the impact he had on people.

One of the best ways to do this is to sit down and read one of the four Gospels. Alternatively, why not go to our Jesus timeline and follow the story of Jesus step by step?

If you’d like to read one of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), Mark is probably the best to start with. Although all the Gospels tell the story of Jesus’ life and work, Mark is thought to be the earliest, and is certainly the shortest.

You can read and print out any of the four Gospels by going to this page.

Try to put out of your mind what you know – or think you know – about Jesus. Come to the story afresh, and let Mark tell you about the Jesus he knows.

“The Gospel according to Mark has continued to inform my life as the root source of my spirituality, my religiousness. The Christ that the Church offers us, the bloodless, placid “Saviour” – the man smiling benignly at a group of children or serenely hanging from the cross – denies Christ his potent, creative sorrow or His boiling anger that confronts us so forcibly in Mark” (Nick Cave).
