Who wrote the Gospels and Why?
Who wrote the Gospels and Why?
The new testament contains four (4) accounts of the story of Jesus' life, death and resurrection
as presented by Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, The 3 accounts are similar, while Johns bible presents Jesus
in a unique way.
These differences exist because Matthew and Luke got their information from Mark and John got
his information from another source, maybe John did not have access to the other gospels or he chose not
to use them. No one really knows the source of John's gospel and we don't know for sure who wrote the
gospels. Scholars refer to the authors as Matthew, Mark, Luke & John, this may not even be their real
names. The Gospel were not first hand accounts except for Mark.
John did not seem to have known the existence of the other 3 gospels. The Gospels were wrote
about 90 - 100 c.e.
This particular Gospel was compressed from a number oral (and perhaps a few written) stories
and sayings. The composer of Johns Gospel took some stories and arranged them in his own way.
