Position Paper 2: Jesus in the Gospel of John and Mark All of the Gospels describe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, but each author illustrates the stories differently. Scholars believe Mark is the first Gospel written and is symbolized by a lion to denote Christ as powerful and fast-paced. The Book of John, understood to be the last gospel composed, is perceived as an eagle because the story differs greatly and is often more developed than the other Gospels. Comparing John 2 to the Gospel of Mark will depict unique themes and characteristics of Jesus.

In the Bible, the four Gospels push different ideologies, views, lessons and different stories that center around the central figure of Jesus. The Gospel of Luke main themes center on Universalism, social justice, compassion for outcasts, the role of woman and the Holy Spirit.(Hauer and Young) These parables are able to connect to the context of when Luke was able bring these stories together in 85 CE. The Gospel was most likely written in Greek speaking area located in the Roman empire.(Coogan et al.) This time of stability allowed for the proliferation of Christianity and Gospels such as Luke. The passages that will be discussed will mainly focus on compassion for outcast seen in Luke 16:19–31 and warning against greed in Luke 12:13-34. Luke 13:6-9 focuses on a fig tree talks of the opportunities people and if they use them properly. Finally, the last parable is 7:11-17, which focuses on holy spirit and the possibilities for miracles and the importance of life. These parables in Luke are able to give a social justice commentary that can make a person feel compassionate for the poor and the reckoning they would receive in the afterlife if they didn’t follow Jesus’s teachings. As, well the story is able to push across a message that will everlasting importance to people. This has led to the Gospels of Luke becoming one of the main 4 Gospels and one of the most highly regarded of the Gospels. (Hauer and Young)
Mark is said to be the oldest written gospel but the literature never mentioned the author’s name. Mark was a rather powerful story of Jesus, which includes Jesus’ development through his path of becoming the anointed one (Millar, 2010, p. 19). However Matthew is very similar yet contrasting to marks gospel; the gospel was a very influential gospel until the modern times. The Gospel became powerful because Matthew claimed to be the first follower of Jesus and the gospel was part of the New Testament (Millar, 2010, p. 61). In addition it covered almost mark’s entire gospel making mark’s Gospel unnecessary. This paper will aim to comparing and contrast Gospel of Mark and Gospel of Matthew; although both the Gospels are very similar they portray

Jesus Is The Teacher - What Is He Teaching You Today? When we open the New Testament, we find four books called "gospels" - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. All four present compelling accounts of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, the long-awaited Jewish Messiah (the
Luke’s Gospels The synoptic gospels have a major similarity in their writing and the content written. Dr. Luke’s writing was different from the rest of the gospels because he tried to give a humanly explanation. He portrays Jesus in his perfect human nature basing on the ministry that he came to save all human beings. Mark has portrayed Jesus as a divine servant of God. He gives no explanations of what he was doing. Mark 14:3-9 explains about a woman who went to see Jesus in the house of Simon the leper. The woman anointed Jesus’ head but those present thought it was a waste. Jesus then replied telling them, “She has done what she should have for she has anointed my body for burial (mark 14:9). Luke 7:36-50 on the other hand talks of a woman
The fourth Gospel, book of John, has been attributed to the apostle John (Harris, 2011, pg. 232). The apostle John was the son of Zebedee, and brother of James which are fishermen. They created a circle, including Paul and followed Jesus closely throughout all his transgressions. It was not until years later, leading churchmen accepted as John’s composition (Harris, 2011, pg. 233).
In the Gospel, it tells the story of Jesus’s ministry, death, and resurrection (Harris, 2014). It tells a story about Jesus’s actions and teachings to others. The Gospels do not represent a complete life of Jesus, how did he become the type of man he was. There are four Gospels that are included: Matthew, Luke, John, and Mark.
All the Gospels tell the same story but just to different people. Of the four Gospels John presents Jesus as God the most. These were written after the life of Jesus, Johns main focus was not just on who Jesus was but more of what Jesus did. So John was giving the Jews truth why they don't have to live under the law and why Jesus did what he did. For me personally, I would struggle with sharing the good news and the love of God and not seeing any instant fruit. But I have come to the conclusion that God doesn't answer on our timing but on his. Also that I might not see instant fruit from inviting someone to church or praying for someone, but I know the least I have done is plant a seed in their heart. It is not my job to make someone accept
