1 Gospel Essentials The Four Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John from the New Testament portray the works of Jesus Christ as good news. Gospels, meaning “good news”, helped shape the Christian Worldview by telling the story of Jesus; his words, his death on the cross, and his resurrection. The Gospels are where Christians gain most of their knowledge on Jesus Christ. Jesus provides parables to his disciples to spread the Word of God.
