The is an excellent resource for helping students gain a better understanding of how the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were written. Students will be able to explain that each Gospel was written from an different perspective about the same event, that is, the life of Christ. Included is a profile of each gospel writer, an explanation of the "Q" source and additional comments about the Gospels.
The second slide "traffic accident" illustration should be used to help students understand the different perspectives that the gospel writers wrote from. Take time to have students do a thought experiment about a traffic accident or sporting event and the different perspectives that would most likely result from multiple witnesses.
Primary source for this presentation is the 8th grade text Walking with God and His People.
