From Our Partners. Luke had been a physician, but he left that profession to travel with Paul.
In the first few verses of his book, Luke says that he is going to write the things that eyewitnesses and other teachers of the gospel had to say about the Savior. Apparently he had the opportunity to talk to many who were present when the Savior taught or performed miracles. One of the most amazing stories Luke wrote about was the birth of the Savior.

Elder Bruce R. Who were the other people Luke interviewed about Jesus Christ? The list would have been long. Many of the people who knew the Savior would still have been alive and would have remembered such important times in their lives. Paul mentions that about people saw the Savior after His Resurrection and that most of them were still alive when he was writing to the Corinthians see 1 Corinthians John, or John the Beloved as he was known, served as one of the Apostles.
His book was probably written last, as John seems to have already read the other Gospels before he wrote his own book. Often, instead of telling his version of an event or parable the others had already written about, he writes about things the other writers did not include. It seems likely that he had some of the writings of John the Baptist. John was writing to members of the Church, who already knew something of the Lord.
In the last five verses of his book, we find out what happened to John.

But John was most likely warning people not to add anything to his writing only in the book of Revelation. Eventually the four Gospels were joined with other valuable writings such as the letters that Paul and others wrote. Other original Apostles also wrote things that were copied repeatedly.

Remnants of these writings survive, but it is difficult to determine which are authentic. When the New Testament was gathered into a single book, these writings were not included.
After the four Gospels, the book of Acts records the events following the Ascension of the Savior. Most scholars agree that Luke wrote the Acts of the Apostles. Nearly all the rest of the books in the New Testament are letters, or epistles. Paul wrote most of these, but also included are letters written by James, Peter, John, and Jude. The book of Revelation, written by John, concludes the collection we now call the New Testament.
You get a more in-depth understanding of events or parables when you read about them everywhere they are written. Try looking up the baptism of Jesus. You will see that it is mentioned in all four Gospels. John has the most unique material in his book. About 90 percent of the information in the book of John is not in the other three Gospels.
