The Canonical Gospels Students are required to write a short (1100 word) critical reflection on the cultural and social circumstances that led to the emergence of the “Fourfold Gospel” – specially, students are asked to address the question: “What possible cultural and/or social circumstance within early Christianity may have influenced the acceptance of a canon with four gospels rather than a single gospel? As this is a “critical reflection”, students are expected engage with, and provide citations from, the set readings from weeks 1-4. All citations must be formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style 17. In a separate attachment I have included: Lectures Weeks 1-4 Readings Weeks 1-3. Again, please only use the resources provided in the Lectures and Readings as that is what the assignment specifies. The 1100 word critical reflection excludes the footnotes and bibliography. Thankyou again for your recent work on the Concept Map and Commentary on the Trinity. It is most appreciated. I am sorry I haven’t left feedback, but I will get around to it. I have peace of mind knowing you are helping me. Please do not exceed 1100 words….the limit is actually 1000 words. Thankyou so much again.
