All four of the Gospel accounts, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, share details about Jesus in a particular point of view.

  • Matthew portrays Jesus as the King and Messiah — he focuses on what Jesus said.
  • Mark shows Jesus as the Servant of God and he simply speaks of what Jesus did.
  • Luke shares Jesus as the Son of Man and therefore has much to say about what Jesus felt.
  • And finally, John presents Jesus as the Son of God giving emphasis to who Jesus was.
