 ==== ====GETV Network; Gospels Finest Musichttp://www.youtube.com/GETVNETWORK ==== ====Among first four books of the New Testament that proclaim the "Good News" brought by JesusChrist, also known as Gospels, the first three are so alike that many passages can be placed sideby side. These three books, the Gospels according to Saints Matthew, Mark , and Luke are oftenreferred to or called "Synoptic Gospels". Word "Synoptic" comes from Greek and literally means"with one eye". The term indicates that synoptic gospels should be viewed and studied as it werewith "one eye", they should be seen together due to many factors; describing same events fromlife of Jesus Christ, using same sources and even relying on each other. The Gospel of Saint Matthew. The Gospel according to Saint Matthew in its present from was most likely written after thedestruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. This gospel is very different from either Luke or Mark in it'spractice to quote Old Testament in connection to Jesus' teaching and miracles.

The Gospels of both Saint Luke andSaint Matthew are better understood in the light of Mark's gospel due to their direct reliance ondata of Mark's gospel. Relying on the suggestions of Clement of Alexandria and Origen, many ofmodern scholars hold that the gospel was written in Rome. The Gospel of Saint Luke. The third gospel distinguished by quality due to the attractive personality of its author, whichshines through his work. Luke is a man, who at the same time is a gifted writer as well as man ofmarked sensibility. Luke dedicates his two books, his gospel and The Acts of the Apostles, toTheophilus, a names which in Greek means "God's Friend".
