"Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias" - Secret of the Gospels

Secret of the Gospels

Christ Jesus preached for about three years.

But only 100 or so episodes are described in each Gospel.  It is strange.  Since three years is almost 1,000 days, there must have been  1,000 episodes written in each Gospel.  Or each of the four Gospels must be significantly different in their contents.  However, the contents of the four Gospels are roughly similar to one another.

(Refer to

It means the basic sources of the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John must be the same.

Furthermore, it is also strange that they are called the Gospel according to Matthew, that according to Mark, that according to Luke and that according to John.  Why aren't they called the Gospel by Mathew, etc.?

Those Gospels must have been originally written by a very authentic person, and Matthew, Mark, Luke and John must have just re-written or edited it.  Mathew, etc. were probably afraid that they were wrongly identified as original authors.  And they were also afraid to reveal the name of the original author.

Taking into account various conditions, the original author seems to have been Jesus who seems to have left Jerusalem for Qumran after the resurrection when the holy spirit having been given to Him by God on the River Jordan left Him. 

Jesus who returned to a natural man must have written a memoir of His mission in Qumran.  But He had to write about Himself in the past mission  in the third person, since Jesus as a natural man was different from Christ Jesus who had been engaged in the holy mission with the holy spirit. 

Therefore, the four Gospels based on this original memoir by Jesus are very authentic, so that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John could not claim their authorship.  It also means that they must have known or believed that the original source had been written by Jesus Himself.

This must be one of secrets of Christianity.
