Christian Origins, Paul, Early Church Doctrines, Monasticism
Reading: Ch. 3 “The Christian Tradition,” pp. 131-174
October 25th, 2010.
100 C.E. distinct Christian literature began to develop, floating around various
accounts of Jesus’ life and were to be collected into new kind of scriptureNew
Testament
Primary sources are biographically narratives called the Gospel
May have been written account of Jesus’ sayings that have been compiled into one
document, translated into Greek, known as Q Gospel
Gospels reproduce Jesus’ saying word for word Q Gospel
Relied on oral tradition generated by witnesses or complied from common sources
whereas Jesus and his companion spoke language Aramaic, all of Gospels
composed in Greek
Gospel of Mark oldest and shortest, roughly 64 C.E. (30-35 years after Jesus
death)
Marks account of Jesus’ life may have been based on recollections of St. Peter
who died in Rome
Gospel of Mark talks little of Jesus’ early life and begins with his Baptist
Gospels of Luke and Mathew are longer
Gospel of Mathew seems to self consciously addressing Jewish audience, as seen
by the language hes using
Gospel of Luke shows different kinds of language and religious emphasis, that

Gospel of Luke and Mathew borrow a lot from Gospel of Mark
Gospel of Mathew contain 600 versus from Gospel of Mark
Lukes Greek is better than Marks but there are certain common feature that they
seem to recognize.
Both Mathew and Luke talk about Jesus’ miraculous virgin birth, speak of
messianship of Jesus and put forward the idea that Jesus is the fulfillment of
Hebrew prophecy of the messiah coming to redeem humankind
All three Gospels called Synoptic Gospels
Last Gospel is Gospel of John composted at turn of 1st century
John much more interested in extrapolating theological implications of Jesus’ life
and death
His language much fore vested in metaphors and his decidedly mystical bent, e.g.
begins with “in the beginning was God and…”
John interested in question of salvation
In Johns Gospel Jesus is the son of God in more ways than
In Johns Gospel we get this father figure who manifests himself
Themes of Jesus’ Teachings:
Kingdom of Heaven is near
