Since all of the Gospels in the Bible tell the story of the same man, Jesus Christ, why did we need four different accounts? Given the overlap we observe in the Gospels, it may seem as if one Gospel would have been sufficient. In his book, Why Four Gospels, Arthur Pink explains how the four Gospels necessarily work together to paint a multi-faceted picture of Jesus.

Overview

Since all of the Gospels in the Bible tell the story of the same man, Jesus Christ, why did we need four different accounts? Given the overlap we observe in the Gospels, it may seem as if one Gospel would have been sufficient. In his book, Why Four Gospels, Arthur Pink explains how the four Gospels necessarily work together to paint a multi-faceted picture of Jesus. In Matthew, we see Jesus as the Son of David, King of the Jews. In Mark, Jesus is presented as the Servant of Jehovah. In Luke, we see Jesus as the Son of Man, Adam's descendent. Finally, John presents Jesus as the Son of God, emphasizing Jesus' relationship with the Divine. Christ fulfilled four distinct roles during his time on earth, and these four roles are illustrated in the four distinct Gospels. Pink's Why Four Gospels will give Christians a better understanding of Jesus' earthly ministry. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer
