How does Jesus die in Luke's compared to Mark and Mathews
All Mathew and Mark, it says that Jesus said `My God, my God, why
have you forsaken me?' Unlike Johns where it says `Father, into your
hands I commend my spirit.'
In Luke's, after when Jesus says his final words, no wine is given to him.
Let alone on a sponge carried by a stick, which is mentioned in Mark and
Both Mark and Mathew quoted the people. `Wait; let us see whether
Elijah (who the people thought were God) will come to take him down.'
Unlike Luke's Gospel, when his chapter has ended.
Finally, Mark and Mathew were different right at the end, where
Mathew said the `tomb also opened', but Mark didn't say anything after
`the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.'
What impacts would this have on Christians?
Christians could have an impact of; Luke is either not bothered, or the more
likely option, Luke does not feel as if he was there at the time so he cannot say
anything he didn't witness or hear! Some Christians may think that Mathew
especially, and a bit of Mark went into a bit too much detail e.g. `...and many
bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.'
