    The most important theme found in the three synoptic gospels Matthew, Mark, and Luke is the divine necessity of Jesus; this theme can also be found in the non-canonical gospel of Judas. This theme is an important building block for Christianity. The divine necessity of Jesus is that he must be rejected by man and killed by man. There are many passages in the four gospels that show this theme. In the synoptics, the four most important are, the passion prediction scenes, the parable of the wicked…

    to Jesus. John sits on the right of the Jesus and he is listening what Peter talks to him. His eyes are looking down and his hands are crossed on the table which like he was tied. Peter is the one who stretches his body across the Judas Scariotes. He seems angry and he wants to know more detail, so he passes a person to ask John who is the nearest person sits with Jesus. His left hand touches John and his right hand holds a knife, as if he can have an answer who is the traitor from John, and he…

    John Schwartz’s book, “Oddly Normal” illustrates how his third child showed signs that he was gay at a very young age. The content of the book that made it readable was not because his son was gay or the criticism that him and his wife received as parents, but the style and tactic that he wrote with made it readable for us. In Schwartz’s book, he uses many of the characteristics that John Trimble the author of the “Writing with Style” shows that are what makes a book readable. John Schwartz…

    Jesus’ ethics and morals are still crystallised for Christians today by a virtue of the gospel of Matthew, along with the other synoptic gospels, revealing a deeper understating of the portrayal of Jesus. Mathew’s Gospel is written to mainly satisfy the Jewish beliefs, this may differ to the other synoptic gospels as they all had a specific structure and style of writing to portray Jesus depending on their audience and time. Matthew’s representations of Jesus as being a teacher, a fulfiller of…

    The story of the hemorrhaging woman’s healing interrupts that of the rising of Jairus’ daughter as Jesus makes his way to Jairus’ house. After the woman is healed, the story of Jairus’ daughter is continued and concluded. Since all three synoptic gospels keep the placement of the hemorrhaging woman in the middle of the story about Jairus’ daughter, it can be assumed that Matthew and Luke kept Mark’s original intercalation in order to preserve a theme of one or both of the stories. On the…

    Testament was written in the first century. Some scholars date them toward the middle and others toward the end. Usually, the late dating of the gospels is based on knowledge and predictions around the destruction of the temple. That is since some do not believe in the message of the New Testament––they do not believe Jesus could predict future events––and so the gospels must have been written after AD 70 if they predict these events. This is unfortunate and ignores much of the evidence to the…

    threshold in Luke 3:21. It says “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened. Jesus has officially crossed the threshold into His journey. Jesus had John baptize Him, because no matter how Godly John was, he still stated that he was unworthy to untie his shoes. That shows humbleness in Paul and that’s why Jesus chose…

    When analyzing the four gospels in the bible it is likely that Mark’s gospel was written first. It is agreed that Luke’s gospel borrowed text from Mark, therefore Luke “most probably used Mark as his primary source.” (Muddiman 134) There are instances in which Luke’s gospel differs from Mark, changing some aspects, and omitting others. In these instances, it is possible that some of these are derived from the gospel of Matthew. Furthermore, Luke adds to the gospel of Mark many occurrences which…

Therefore, we have been using certain methodologies such as redactional criticism to help examine these emphases. This particular methodology is meant to determine what's important to authors by understanding how they used their sources. Although this proves effective…

    The Synoptic Gospels illustrates Jesus as an universal savior that came from the heaven as flesh. In Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus is the promised Messiah from the Old Testament, the human son of God, and the universal savior, respectively. To start, Matthew, one of the twelve disciples, wrote the Gospel of Matthew for Jewish Christian. Matthew wrote this book in order to proclaim that Jesus is truly the promised Messiah that is stated in the Old Testament. Matthew proves that Jesus is the…
