Outlining the Gospels’ introduction to the life of Jesus

If I were preaching through my chronological harmony of the Gospels once again, I think my first twenty-two sermons covering Jesus’s introduction, birth, and childhood would look something like this:

  1. John 1:1-5
  2. John 1:6-13
  3. John 1:14-18
  4. Luke 1:1-4
  5. Matthew 1:1-17
  6. Luke 3:23-38
  7. Luke 1:5-14, 18-25
  8. Luke 1:15-17
  9. Luke 1:26-33
  10. Luke 1:34-38
  11. Luke 1:39-45
  12. Luke 1:46-55
  13. Luke 1:56-66
  14. Luke 1:67-80
  15. Matthew 1:18-25
  16. Luke 2:1-7
  17. Luke 2:8-20
  18. Luke 2:21-24
  19. Luke 2:25-38
  20. Matthew 2:1-12
