About This Quiz

A doctor, a tax collector, a fisherman, and a teenager. Which one are you? Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are some of the most famous followers of Jesus Christ that we know of, but they also wrote some of the more popular books in the Bible, especially if you favor the latter half of the good book.

The first fours books of what we've come to call the New Testament are known as the Gospels. They were written by these four men, each of which had their own experiences with Christ. Two of them, Matthew and John, were members of the Twelve Apostles. Mark had very close relationships with two of the twelve and found his love for Christ because of his mother. Luke, on the other hand, had never met Jesus but became a follower after Paul taught him about the ways of Christ. 

What we want to know is which one of these men you are. Were you the one who was closest to Christ? Did you help one of his Apostles during a very tough time? Or were you the one who wrote about his life based on the experiences of others? It's time to find out which of the Four Evangelists you are!
