The Four Faces of Jesus
"Four Gospels have been in the New Testament from the very first time anybody thought to ask which writings should be included in it. The reasons why the earliest Christians choose to keep all four Gospels in the New Testament are not known. But because they did so, we now have four slightly different witnesses to Jesus. Just as several witnesses called in a court case give their individual perspectives so that truth might emerge with greater clarity, so too, the four evangelists provide four different perspectives of Jesus. Between them, we see Jesus in four dimensions, as it were. In fact, at one stage I had called my book on the four Gospels, “Jesus in Four Dimensions.” The editors decided that The Four Faces of Jesus would be a better title, and indeed, this title expresses the same idea—that each of the Gospel writers has a unique witness to Jesus and His message. What do they all think is important?"
