Have you ever read the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John?

People say that they don’t have time to read the four most important books in human history, but the truth is that everyone does. It is simply a question of our priorities. Given the average person’s reading speed and the number of words in each book, about how long does it take to read the Gospels?

Matthew:  1 hour, 14 minutes
Mark:  46 minutes
Luke:  1 hour, 18 minutes
John:  1 hour, 3 minutes

The Four Gospels:  4 hours, 21 minutes

For comparison, you can read:

If we have had the time for any of the things above, what excuse will we have for someday appearing before the Lord Jesus without having read his Gospels? Put first things first, and take time today to begin reading his four Gospels.
