There are four different gospels for a reason. Each
writer wrote to a different audience in a different time and
for a different reason. For this reason, each gospel
writer may include certain details that other writers did
All four gospels are meant to complement each other but
the first three gospels are known as the synoptic gospels.
This means that they look alike. They contain many of
the same stories and details as each other. John was
written later and was meant to fill in some gaps that the
other gospels did not contain.
