Gospel Birthday Meme

Courtesy Quotidian Grace

It goes like this: take the month and year of your birthday and look up the corresponding chapter and verse in each Gospel. So for March 10 we get: (using NRSV )
  • Matthew -- Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
  • Mark -- for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him.
  • Luke -- And the crowds asked him, ‘What then should we do?’
  • John -- Jesus answered him, ‘Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things?


  1. Gee, Gord, your Matthew verse is pretty scary!

  2. Hey John the Baptist, gotta love 'im ;=)

  3. Matthew:For my yoke is easy and my burden is light

    Mark:John's baptism—was it from heaven, or from men? Tell me!

    Luke:For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation.

    John:Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him.

  4. Why just the Gospel? Why not the paslams, too? Or the Hebrew Bible?

    Anyway, hey! Another fishy! (March 14)
