Answer: Four      

  Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke)

  • Matthew's gospel - 
  • AUTHOR, Matthew (also called LEVI), 
  • one of the twelve apostles, 
  • 1068 verses (28 chapters)
  • A.D. 70-80 
  • Matthew’s emphasis – Jesus as the fulfilment of Old Testament prophesy, Jesus as King as prophesied Messiah and descendant from David’s throne.
  • Mark's gospel - AUTHOR, Mark, the son of Mary of Jerusalem. 
  •  referred to as John Mark, in Ac.12:25. 
  • MAIN THEME, “ Christ, the Tireless Servant of God and Man.” 
  • Like Matthew, Mark ends with Jesus commissioning his disciples to spread the Gospel all over the world.
  • 676 verses (16 chapters)  
  • Written in Rome about A.D. 65
  • Luke's gospel - WRITER. Luke (who also wrote ACTS OF APOSTLES) , the beloved physician. 
  •  TO WHOM ADDRESSED. To Theophilus, an unknown person. 
  • 1149 verses (24 chapters) Written in Syria) about A.D. 70-80 . 
  • Luke’s emphasis – Jesus as compassionate and uplifter of the oppressed.
  • Gospel of John - WRITER, The Apostle John. He was the son of Zebedee and Salome and brother of James.
  • 879 VERSES, 21 CHAPTERS. MAIN PURPOSE, To inspire faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. 
  •  KEY VERSE:ch.20:31, “ But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Only Gospel in which Jesus openly claims to be the Messiah. ‘I am the Light of the World’, ‘I am the Bread of Life’ are in this Gospel. This Gospel has a very ‘spiritual’ feel. The Gospel of John tells the story of the life and ministry of Jesus through an insider point of view. John’s emphasis – Jesus as the Son of God and his unique relationship with His Father.
