Explaining spiritual truths with spiritual words How did the Apostles explain the Spiritual truths written in the Bible? In I Corinthian 2: When we tell you this, we do not use words of human wisdom.
The content of each gospel can never be found to contradict but always be found to corroborate the other gospels and all Scripture in every relevant and comparable instance when interpreted correctly via the normative rules of language, context and logic - a result which is beyond the capacity of finite and flawed man.
Hence the gospels corroborate themselves as historically valid and trustworthy. For throughout history, no group of individuals, no matter how brilliant, or well intentioned or well organized, has ever been able to produce separate, flawless accounts of events of the complexity and number of those surrounding Jesus Christ such as done by the gospel writers.
Their inerrant quality, hence their perfect corroboration without contradiction with the rest of Scripture revealed when compared properly within the framework of the normative rules of language, context and logic with one another and the rest of Scripture is something which is beyond the capacity of finite and flawed man without divine inspiration.
This comparison is especially significant when the gospel content is compared with Old Testament prophecies about Jesus which resulted in perfect fulfillment in every comparable instance! No group of individuals, no matter how brilliant, or well intentioned, or well organized, has ever been able to produce the flawless accounts of events of the complexity and number such as those surrounding Jesus Christ as the gospel writers did.
The quality of the gospels corroborates their historical validity and trustworthiness. The authors of the gospels - three of whom were eye witnesses, two of whom were of the twelve disciples, and one of whom provided multiple eye witness accounts, Lk 1: Hence the writers did not need a secret source or oral tradition or collaboration or vivid imagination.
They only needed to write down precisely what they had witnessed and had been proclaiming all those years.
There is a convincing absence throughout history of tangible proof of collaboration or invention which might have produced the gospel accounts. If any collaboration or invention occurred, the question must be asked why evidence is lacking of someone who lived during the alleged historical time when the actions of Jesus were purported to have occurred according to the gospels, who had objectively testified that what was written in the gospels was not historically accurate.
Note from the diagram above, that almost all of Mark's content is found in Matthew and Luke. Mark's content focused on Jesus' actions and parables, especially His miracles, which had its key purpose to address the crowds as to who Jesus was as opposed to instructing those who aspired to be Jesus' disciples.
Furthermore, the gospels of Matthew and Luke have a large amount of material in common that is not found in Mark - much of which is teaching as opposed to miracles and parables. Hence one may not logically conclude that Mark was the key source for the content of Matthew or Luke.
The frequency of the appearance of similar excerpts of Jesus' actions in Matthew, Mark and Luke, especially miracles and parables is not necessarily attributable to Mark as the source as some contend, or to any source other than Jesus Himself.
For the possibility has not been ruled out that these commonalities are due to them being the most notable, significant excerpts of Jesus' actions relative to the particular purposes of each author when he wrote what he wrote - especially after decades of each author's proclamation and teaching the truths about Jesus Christ before each put it in writing.
So it is evident that the authors of the synoptics were motivated to proclaim and write about a number of common purposes which often prompted them to select the same or similar excerpts from the actual actions and teachings of Jesus Christ which purposes, in the final analysis, were the purposes of Jesus Christ leading to the commonalities in their respective writings.
On the other hand, where the gospel authors differed in their selection of a purpose of Jesus Christ to proclaim, it can be expected that the excerpts of Jesus' actions and teachings that the author selected, were likely to be different from the content of the other gospels.A Comparison of 9 Bible Translations Page 1 of 2 pages Navigate: Translations Compared Translation name & abbreviation As the basis for this comparison, BibleBell selected a number of Bible verses covering 1) The virgin birth & deity of Lord Jesus; 2) Basic Bible terms and doctrines.
