Many people are confused about the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. People think that there are contradictions between the books. Sometimes people do not understand that each Gospel is following a theme. One way of looking at the themes the Gospel’s present is: Matthew is about “King Jesus”, Mark is about “Jesus as Servant,” Luke is covering the theme “Jesus as Man,” and John, “Jesus as God.” The reason for the books covering some different material is to talk about these themes. This is the way the Lord intended; however, it is not wrong to study the books as being part of the whole Gospel as well. Even as a person puts together a jig saw puzzle, when it is finished it makes a complete picture. So, too, when we put all the pieces of the puzzle together they make one beautiful perfect picture of Christ.
