A study of the history of Christianity and the four Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John.
This paper examines the teachings of Jesus through the four Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. It illustrates how we can draw conclusions of who he was and what was his message through the Bible. The author states that it is apparent how the Christian church has not always followed the teachings of Jesus and has twisted its words around to justify their actions.
“Christianity is by far one of the most powerful religions in present day, and it has millions of followers. Christianity is based on the New Testament, which explains the life of Jesus Christ the savior. Although there is the Bible to explain the teachings of Jesus, there is actually very little known historically about him. By using the four Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John, one can draw conclusions of who Jesus was and what he preached. These four Gospels differ in style and content, for different men wrote them all twenty to forty years after the death of Christ. By reading the Gospel of Mathew, one can learn the stories of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem, to his death on the cross. After reading, it is noticeable that there are many differences between this Gospel, and the Christianity that grew up in his name.”
