The Synoptic Gospels
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
So the rhyme and song goes.
Upon closer examinations,
Studies and observations,
The order should be
Mark, Matthew, Luke and John.
Really the order does not matter
A gospel is discovered
The story of Jesus
Just gets better.
Still, I challenge thee -
Take a closer look
And see if you see what I see:
Mark tells us, “Listen! Listen! Wait! Wait!”
Jesus is returning!
Matthew instructs, lays down the rules.
Practice your faith.
Help those less fortunate than you.
Glorious Luke promises golden gates and skies of blue.
But for me when I am facing a dark night,
It is the Book of John I turn to in order to feel the light.
