The first three gospels are so similar in content and organization that they are called the Synoptic Gospels. Synoptic means “seeing together” and these gospels present the ministry of Jesus using similar (and at times almost identical) stories. We will examine what the similarities and differences in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke can tell us about the authors and the messages they are trying to convey.
