Meeting Jesus In The Gospels – Why are there four gospels?


bible writingThere are four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The gospels are not the same, though some have some overlap between them.

All were first account witnesses or researched directly from first account witnesses (meaning they saw, heard and touched Jesus).  This below is a very narrow differentiating of them. And below an additional resource for more notes.

Matthew  for Jewish Audience. The disciple of Jesus, also called Levi – Tax Collector.

Mark  earliest gospel written, Peter was the resource, to Christian gentiles. focuses on Jesus miracles – shows Jesus as the Suffering Son of God. Shortest of the gospels.

The Gospel Matters!

“…all around the world this Gospel is bearing fruit and growing…”  [Colossians 1:6b]

Dear Heavenly Father, awaken Your people with a renewed awareness that the Gospel matters as much today as it mattered to the Apostles.  Increase our zeal for lost souls so that we will proclaim Jesus’ death and resurrection with extraordinary boldness today.
