I got much more than I bargained for, and even got the best of the bargain! This was also true for the disciples of Jesus, the earliest of whom were brought to Him by a friend or relative. The disciples of our Lord play a very significant role in the New Testament. Each of the three Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) 66 has two. ISBN: X OCLC Number: Notes: Includes index. Description: pages: map ; 23 cm: Contents: Introduction: subject, problems, and approach --Jesus' ancestry, birth, and early life --John the Baptist: the baptism and temptation of Jesus --The first part of the Galilean ministry --The Sermon on the Mount and the Sermon on the Plain - . Some might say that the divinity of Jesus is emphasized more in the Gospel of John than the other three gospels. But the Jesus of John is, in some ways, humanized even more. Jesus weeps (John ). He tires and asks for a drink from the well (John ). On the cross, He thirsts (John ). Jesus and the First Three Gospels human, and religious—emerges as the essential recorded basis for knowledge of Jesus.

The first three Gospels are called “synoptic” because they “see together with a common view” (the word synoptic literally means “together sight”). Matthew, Mark, and Luke cover many of the same events in Jesus’ life—most of them from Jesus’ ministry in . The fourth book, John, is distinctly different from the three Synoptic Gospels, and includes much information not in the other three Gospels. The four gospel books differ in what stories they include and how the stories are told. None of the four Gospels are meant to be a complete, detailed life of Jesus. The first four books of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) are known as Gospels, meaning “good news.”The books are named after their traditionally accepted authors. The first three (Matthew, Mark and Luke) are called Synoptic Gospels because they share many of the same stories, and some common passages have similar or identical wording.
