Unformatted text preview: Daniel Bauer Fr. Golitzin Religion Midterm Paper March 5, 2008 The Passion I t seems like it would be very hard for the biblical accounts of Jesus death and resurrection to be very different within four completely different books, but that is not the case. In fact there are many differences within the books for many reasons. Many people must understand that before the Bible and these books were written all these accounts were based off oral tradition and the accounts of witnesses, but there are similarities and it is not like each book is completely different but each book has its own themes highlighted and different points of view present. For example, in a broad sense the whole book of Matthew is unknown who the author is historians can only speculate whether it is the apostle of Jesus himself or someone with that pseudonym. Much of the material peculiar to this Gospel is concerned with the Jews or with the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies (Matthew preface). Mark focuses a lot on presenting Jesus as the true Son of God and highlights a lot of these actions that separates him from the others. Luke is known as the historian. His gospel is more of a historical account with focus on specific dates and times and other details that are important to his style.

There are 4 main parts that make up the Passion Death and Resurrection of our Lord: The Last Supper, followed by Jesus' arrest and trial, his sentence to crucifixion and preparation for death, to his death and burial. The Last Supper is the very beginning of the passion account in all the gospels. There are not many discrepancies between the gospels on this. There are just many different references used throughout all the books. In Matthew, the book of Isaiah is heavily mentioned. In the International Bible Commentary they note the strong influence that Isaiah has "The language of v. 28 draws heavily on Isa 52:12, for Jesus is that Servant who will pour out his soul to death and bear the sin of humankind" (IBC 1322). The Commentary goes on to explain the similarities between Jesus' suffering and the suffering Servant within Isaiah. "...In Isaiah 53 the Servant's suffering, death, and resurrection are seen as the means for extending that kingdom to all. This is not resurrection are seen as the means for extending that kingdom to all....
