    These gospels contain a great deal of information about the theology of Christ with some facts of his life included.

Matthew, Mark and Luke are believed to be more accurate than John as they share a larger amount of information as 90% of the book of Mark is included in Matthew. Furthermore, the book of John doesn’t include key events such as the exorcism…

We are not certain if John heard about Jesus…

    signs to a hostile world that He was indeed the Christ. John also reveals to his readers that the reason he includes such occurrences in his Gospel is so that “[they] may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and… have life in his name” (John 20:30-31).

    Christ’s Death and Resurrection in Prophecies Paul in writing many letters to various churches is able to write in great depth on many topics of concern to the early churches.
