Jesus’ Last Meal in John continued John 13:12: After he had washed their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to them, “… 14: So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. John 13:15: For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

(Matthew; Mark; Luke; or John) Answer: Luke 10:1-20, which begins 1: After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go.

Luke’s Mission of Seventy continued Luke 10:17: The seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, in your name even the demons submit to us!” Luke 10:18: He said to them, “I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. Luke 10:19: See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. 20: Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
Which NT Gospel does not have Jesus select Twelve Disciples or send Twelve out on a “Mission”? (Matthew; Mark; Luke; or John) Answer: John (cf. Matt 10:1-15; Mark 6:7-13; Luke 9:1-6) (continue clicking for further explanation) In the Gospel of John, Jesus does not appoint twelve disciples. Instead Andrew tells his brother Simon Peter, “We have found the Messiah” (John 1:41); Simon Peter calls Philip, saying, “Follow me” (John 1:43); and Philip tells Nathaniel to “come and see” Jesus (John 1:46).
Further Explanation of The Twelve and Mission (1) Matt 10:1-4; Mark 3:7-12; Luke 9:1-6 show Jesus appointing twelve disciples: 1)Simon Peter; 2)his brother Andrew; 3)Philip; 4)Thomas; 5)Bartholomew; 6)Matthew (or: Levi); 7)James son of Alphaeus; 8)Thaddaeus; 9)Simon the Cananaean; 10) James son of Zebedee; 11)his brother John; 12)Judas Iscariot.
Further Explanation of The Twelve and Mission (2) There are nine disciples with identity in the Gospel of John. Seven are among the Twelve in Matthew, Mark, and Luke: (1) Simon Peter; (2) his brother Andrew; (3) Philip; (4) Thomas; (5) James son of Zebedee; (6) his brother John; (7) Judas. An eighth disciple in John’s Gospel is Nathaniel (John 1:45-49; 21:2). A ninth disciple in John’s Gospel is “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (John 20:2; 13:23; 19:26; 21:7, 20).
Which NT Gospel contains a speech by Jesus saying, “I am the Good Shepherd”? (Matthew; Mark; Luke; or John) Answer: John 10:1-18. The statement about the good shepherd begins in 10:11: “I am the good shepherd. (continue clicking for Jesus’ Good Shepherd speech in John) The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12: The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away—and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
Jesus’ Good Shepherd Speech in John continued 13: The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. 14: I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15: just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep.
Summary (1) In this lesson we have learned: 1)Matthew 1:2-17 and Luke 3:23-38 have genealogies (family trees) for Jesus. Matthew’s begins with Abraham up to Joseph through 3 sets of 14 generations. Luke’s goes from Joseph back to Adam, son of God. 2)The Last Meal in John’s Gospel (13:1-30) does not contain, “This is my body,” and “This is the new covenant in my blood.” Instead, Jesus washes the feet of the disciples. 3)Mary’s Magnificat is only in Luke 1:46-55, where she says, “My soul magnifies the Lord.”
Summary (2) 4)Luke’s Gospel contains a Mission of 70 (10:1-20), in addition to a Mission of the Twelve (Luke 9:1-6; cf. Matt 10:1-15; Mark 6:7-13). 5)John’s Gospel does not have Jesus select 12 disciples or send 12 out on a Mission. Rather, seven of the Twelve are present in John’s Gospel, plus Nathaniel and “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” 6)Jesus’ Good Shepherd speech is in John 10:1-18.
