The Gospel tells the inspiring story of Jesus birth, his ministry, his ˜trial before Pilate and the agony of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. This Gospel inspired one of the finest Biblical films ever made, Pasolinis ˜The Gospel According to St Matthew, which did not use actors but ordinary Italians.
The writings of the Church Fathers suggest the Gospel of Mark was the source for the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, though Mark gives no account of the genealogy of Jesus. An important theme is the fact that the disciples are all too human and have trouble understanding Jesus parables.
The Gospel of Luke tells the traditional story from Jesus birth to his Crucifixion and Resurrection. Luke may not have been an eye witness of Jesus Ministry but wrote after the events, having gathered the best information he could. He may well have been a doctor as he placed a great deal of emphasis on healing, and describes eighteen instances of healing.
This Gospel is often called the prophetic one and John deals more with the relationship of the Son to the Father than the other Gospels. A fragment of the manuscript is accepted as being the earliest surviving Gospel. John is also supposed to be the author of the Book of Revelation.
