In our last poll, we asked “Which Gospel account do you connect with the most?” There was a clear preference—well over half of you picked one particular Gospel writer. Here’s the breakdown of votes:
Which Gospel account do you connect with the most?
John: 57% (1,145 Votes)
Matthew: 20% (400 Votes)
Luke: 18% (371 Votes)
Mark: 5% (93 Votes)
I think it’s safe to say that this one was a landslide in John’s favor, with 57% of the vote; poor Mark came in at 5%.
What I find most interesting about these results is how they echo the results of another poll several months ago. When we asked “Which Gospel would you recommend starting with to someone new to the Bible?” John took the majority vote there too:
Which Gospel would you recommend starting with to someone new to the Bible?
John: 63% (633 votes)
Matthew: 19% (206 Votes)
Mark: 9% (100 Votes)
Luke: 9% (99 Votes)
If you’re curious about why this particular Gospel is considered such an approachable, readable account, why not read the Gospel of John at Bible Gateway?

This week we’re going to switch gears a bit and ask a different question about your Bible reading: How many times have you read through the entire Bible? And we mean the entire Bible—Genesis through Revelation, without skipping a single verse:
