The Gospels

The Gospels are the four books of the New Testament that recollect the life of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Though they contain elements of Jesus' human birth and eternal existence, they focus primarily on the last three years of his life.

The Gospels retell Jesus' ministry, including his teachings and miracles. Additionally, they spend a significant amount of time narrating the events of his final week, climaxing in Jesus' death and resurrection. While the events are similar across all four books, each Gospel describes those events while focusing on a specific perspective of Jesus' humanity and divinity.
