Forced Choices: the Gospels

Last week’s forced choice pit J. R. R. Tolkien against C. S. Lewis. And, although Tolkien led big at the beginning, Lewis slowly caught up, before pulling ahead for good late in the week. So, after one week, the tally stands at Lewis 55% and Tolkien 45%.

Since we’ve been talking about Matthew a lot this week, I thought it would be appropriate for today’s Forced Choice to focus on the Gospels. So, make your choice. Which Gospel do you like better? Feel free to make a comment explaining your choice, but you don’t have to.

  1. This one was hard but I chose Luke because of it’s earthy themes (e.g. How the Gospel addresses the poor and down trodden).

    • I had a hard time choosing as well. I almost went with Mark because he’s got the coolest name. But, in the end, I had to go with John. The synoptics are great, but John’s always been my favorite.

  2. I say John too!

  3. I became a believer 9 years ago and obtained my first Bible 8 years ago. Matthew was the first book of the bible I ever read; amazing to think it was only 8 years ago that I read a book of the Bible. With that said, I choose Matthew.

  4. Mark, everyone else but John are just poor Copycats. It’s like Star Trek (Mark) v Star Wars (Matthew and Luke) as told by someone who never say the movies

  5. John, cause he is not Mark.
