Part 1—Why four Gospels and not just one life of Jesus?
Part One: Why four Gospels and not just one life of Jesus?
This question arises out of confusing the Gospels with actual history, as though they depict the life of Jesus documentary style. Although often based on actual events, but not by eyewitnesses, they reveal purpose and meaning beyond the ordinary report of “he went there and said this.” Also, the Gospels arose from the specific needs of four communities of Jesus’ followers who were facing issues often very different from one another. Each Gospel was written from these unique perspectives. One Gospel could not possibly serve all four congregations. We will look carefully at each Gospel to determine the life situation it faced and how the Gospel writer addressed it.
