The first 4 books of the New Testament, chronicling the life of one Jesus Christ.

Matthew - Matt compares Old Testament scripture with Jesus' deeds to appeal to Jews.

Mark - The oldest Gospel written for the Romans and portrays Jesus as the miracle worker.

Luke - Written for Gentiles and portrays Jesus as a Nice Guy who preached kindness and charity. Has the most in-depth look into his origin story and contains the most parables

John - The most introspective Gospel and written for Christians.


Tropes used in The Four Gospels include:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Notes

  1. Many Jews were pretty much sick of the Romans by this point and had no desire to pay taxes to support Roman idolatry and hedonistic living. The last thing they would have wanted to hear was a command to pay their taxes. If Christ had said that this was unnecessary, though, well ...
  2. If Christ had said that she shouldn't be stoned, the Pharisees would have accused Him of violating the laws of Moses. If He had said that she should, He would likely have been turned over to the Romans, who didn't allow the Jews to perform their own executions.
