The Fourth Day of Christmas

Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.

Luke 1:1–4

Matthew. Mark. Luke. John.

Perhaps the easiest of the numbers to figure out.

Each of the four gospels tell us the story of Jesus, yet each in their own unique manner. They are the stories of the eyewitnesses. Of those who walked with him.

The origin of the word gospel means “good tidings” or “good news.”

Surely the writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are good news for all of us.
