Esther 1:1-22; Zechariah 11:1-17; Revelation 18:1-24

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. Luke 2:10

We have four Gospel accounts in our Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Why four? The angel answers that question saying, the good tidings “shall be to all people”. The Gospels present a beautiful and complete portrait of the Saviour to all people. Matthew, written for the Jews, presents the Lord as King. Mark, written for the Romans, presents the Lord as the Servant. Luke, written for the Greeks, presents the Lord as Man. John, written for the whole World, presents the Lord as God. God’s gift of His Son is one Saviour Who is perfect for all! —Rex Trogdon

Joy to the world, the Lord is come,
Let earth receive her King.
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing. —Isaac Watts
