Matthew Sounding Like John

Matthew and John tell Jesus’ story in very different ways, using very different language. In Matthew 11:27, however, Jesus sounds very much like he does in the fourth gospel.

All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

  1. It is more accurate to say that John sounds like Matthew as the author of John developed sayings of Jesus into discourses as a means of offering his theological interpretation of Jesus Christ.
