Synoptic Gospels

Redirected from Synoptic gospel

The Synoptic Gospels are the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and Luke. They are so-called from Greek συνοψις, synopsis, "a seeing-together", because they tell the story of Jesus from a similar point of view, often using the same stories and even the same words. The fourth Gospel, John, tells the story of Jesus from a radically different point of view and so is not a synoptic Gospel.
