The Gospels Reveal Christ

Speaking of the first four books of the New Testament (the Gospel according to Matthew, the Gospel according to Mark, the Gospel according to Luke, and the Gospel according to John), these words were written by the Bishop J.C. Ryle:

“Now the Gospels were written to make us acquainted with Christ.  The Holy Ghost has told us the story of His life and death,—His sayings and His doings, four times over.  Four different inspired hands have drawn the picture of the Saviour.  His ways, His manners, His feelings, His wisdom, His grace, His patience, His love, His power, are graciously unfolded to us by four different witnesses.  Ought not the sheep to be familiar with the Shepherd?  Ought not the patient to be familiar with the Physician?  Ought not the bride to be familiar with the Bridegroom?  Ought not the sinner to be familiar with the Saviour?  Beyond doubt it ought to be so.  The Gospels were written to make men familiar with Christ, and therefore I wish men to study the Gospels.”
