Plaque with Agnus Dei and Four Evangelists, probably 9th century - German or North Italian

This website lists the four gospels of the New Testament side by side, so you can easily find all versions of the stories, parables and teachings. The different gospels are in different orders, so I have taken the order of Mark, which is the shortest gospel. The divisions (below) are to reduce the size of each page to make them quicker to load. The descriptions are not accurate, e.g. not all the parables are on the Parables page. The text is the Authorised Version, commonly called the King James Bible. This is one of the great works of English literature, and has been widely quoted.

If you would prefer to read the gospels in their correct order, here they are, with internal links to similar stories in the other gospels: Matthew - Mark - Luke - John
