In Christian tradition, the Four Evangelists are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the authors attributed with the creation of the four Gospel accounts in the New Testament. Convention has traditionally held the authors to have been two of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, John and Matthew, and two 'apostolic men', Mark and Luke.


Matthew - a former tax collector who was called by Jesus to be one of the Twelve Apostles

Mark - a follower of Peter and so an 'apostolic man'

Luke - a doctor who wrote what is now the book of Luke to a friend Theophilus. Also believed to have written the book of Acts (or Acts of the Apostles) and a close friend of Paul and Tarsus
John - a disciple of Jesus and possibly the youngest of his Twelve Apostles


They are called evangelists, a word meaning 'people who proclaim good news', because their books aim to tell the 'good news' (gospel) of Jesus.
