Document: Cornelis Vonk, Opening the Scriptures: Matthew, trans. by Nelson D. Kloosterman (Grand Rapids, MI., Christian’s Library Press, 2014).

Excerpt: We begin our discussion of the New Testament with the Gospels, four books that differ remarkably from the other books of the New Testament. For example, the term epistle would not apply to any of the four Gospels. But still, every page of these four books shows the same watermark as all the pages of all the rest of the New Testament. This is the watermark: “Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah.” According to the four Gospels, that truth is unshakably firm. They tell about him as the Messiah promised to the fathers and awaited since the fathers.
