The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
If you haven’t read any of the four gospels, take your pick. Mark is the shortest (Mark has 16 chapters, John has 21, Luke has 24, and Matthew has 28). John, however, can sometimes serve better as a first gospel to read because it is more geared toward reflective reading, whereas Mark can be terse by comparison.)
