    As diverse and multicultural as today’s society may appear, the majority of individuals have still heard of the gospels that help make up the Holy Bible. Although there are many in the Bible, the four canonical gospels, Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John, are perhaps the most widely recognized. These four, although composed by different individuals, share many similarities in common such as how those who encounter Jesus after his resurrection behave. Even certain traits that characterize Jesus himself after resurrection are somewhat related.…

    Peter: Character Study

    • 22 Pages

    In the New Testament the “twelve” are mentioned a total of four times (Matt 10:2-4, Mark 3:16-19, Luke 6:14-16. and Acts 1:13). The man that is listed first every time may take some people by surprise, as that man is Simon Peter. When it comes to Simon we have a lot of information about this man that would later come to be called Peter. Some things we know about Peter was that he was a Galilean fisherman, he became the chief spokesman of the Apostles, and he was one of the two strongest personalities in the New Testament along with Paul. So where does the name Peter come from anyway? The name Peter comes from the Greek “petros", which means rock. More often than not when we think about how Peter got this name we often look to Matthew 16:18, but if we look at John 1:42 we will see that Jesus gives Peter this name at their first meeting. John 1:42 states; “He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "You are Simon the son of John; you shall be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).” One common theory about how Peter gained his name is that he…

    When one picks up the Bible and reads the first four books of the Bible they see many similarities, but also great differences. The first three books are referred to as Synoptic Gospels; this is because they contain many of the same stories, often in similar wording and sequence. John however is much different; the details, wording, and events highlighted by John are unique. In the following paper a comparison between Matthew’s Gospel and John’s Gospel will be found.…
