Synoptic Gospels
The gospels of Matthew , Mark , and Luke are referred to as the SYNOPTIC GOSPELS because they include many of the same stories, often in a similar sequence and in similar wording. They stand in contrast to John , whose content is comparatively distinct. The term synoptic (Latin : synopticus; Greek : συνοπτικός, translit. synoptikós) comes via Latin from the Greek σύνοψις, synopsis, i.e. "(a) seeing all together, synopsis"; the sense of the word in English, the one specifically applied to these three gospels, of "giving an account of the events from the same point of view or under the same general aspect" is a modern one. This strong parallelism among the three gospels in content, arrangement, and specific language is widely attributed to literary interdependence

Kingdom Of God
The concept of the KINGSHIP OF GOD appears in all Abrahamic religions , where in some cases the terms KINGDOM OF GOD and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN are also used. The notion of God's kingship goes back to the Hebrew Bible , which refers to "his kingdom" but does not include the term "Kingdom of God". The "Kingdom of God" and its equivalent form "Kingdom of Heaven" in the Gospel of Matthew is one of the key elements of the teachings of Jesus
Jesus
in the New Testament
New Testament
. The Gospel of Mark indicates that the gospel is the good news about the Kingdom of God. The term pertains to the kingdom that Jesus

Oriental Orthodoxy
ORIENTAL ORTHODOXY is a communion of Eastern Christian churches that recognize only the first three ecumenical councils – the First Council of Nicaea in 325, the First Council of Constantinople
First Council of Constantinople
in 381 and the Council of Ephesus in 431. The Oriental Orthodox churches maintain their own ancient apostolic succession with miaphysite Christology , rejecting the definition of the two natures of Christ (human and divine), known as the Chalcedonian Definition , issued by the Council of Chalcedon in 451. Over the following two centuries, one by one, they discontinued their communion with the adherents of Chalcedonian Christianity , and developed separate institutions that together did not participate in any of the later ecumenical councils
