Why Four Gospels? - Enhanced Version

4.23  ·  Rating details ·  39 ratings  ·  7 reviews
Since all of the Gospels in the Bible tell the story of the same man, Jesus Christ, why did we need four different accounts? Given the overlap we observe in the Gospels, it may seem as if one Gospel would have been sufficient. In his book, Why Four Gospels, Arthur Pink explains how the four Gospels necessarily work together to paint a multi-faceted picture of Jesus. In Mat ...more

Shelves: christian
Great book. Really easy to follow.

Main highlights were:
Matthew: Focused on Jesus' royal lineage. Aimed at Jewish readers
Mark: Focused on Jesus' servanthood. Aimed at those who serve in the Church.
Luke: Focused on Jesus' humanity. Aimed at all men + women.
John: Focused on Jesus' divinity. Evangelical focus.

Pink is great at highlighting their differences, but also how they aid each other in allowing the believer to understand the depth of Jesus' life. Really liked his focus on numbers, never read

Outstanding book! So helpful in understanding not only why we have 4 Gospels, but also the nuances between them!

This was the first book that I have read by A.W. Pink and it has me looking forward to reading more of his works. It was a great introduction into the purposes of the four gospels in the New Testament. There were some sections that I felt stretched the text a bit as far as the context of what it meant. That being said, there were several eye opening points that really help build the faith of the reader about the divine inspiration of the books from beginning to end. I recommend on that level alo ...more

Although the writing can at times seem tedious or redundant, the book is valuable for its in-depth look at the gospels. Pink explains the reason for 4 gospels thoroughly in terms that any reader can understand. Further, he provides detailed examinations of each of the 4 gospels, so that the purpose of each is better illuminated. I recommend this book to anyone who is trying to enrich their understanding of the gospels; the book can also boost faith, as Pink's explanations show explicitly the div ...more

I thought this book was great! I absolutely love how he explained how Christ was portrayed in each of the gospels, what things were included in each, and which were left out. His comparisons and contrasts for a story/parable that was in multiple gospels was helpful in really understanding what he had written about previously. I took notes even! :)

It is short enough to attract any reader, it is profound in its significance, and I really enjoyed.
