The Gospel according to Mark is the second of the four canonical gospels and of the three synoptic gospels. It tells of the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death and burial and the discovery of Jesus’ empty tomb.
The Gospel according to Luke, also called the Gospel of Luke, or simply Luke, is the third of the four canonical Gospels. It tells of the origins, birth, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. Luke is the longest of the four gospels and the longest book in the New Testament.

The First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians, probably written about 55 C.E. at Ephesus, Asia Minor, deals with problems that arose in the early years after Paul's initial missionary visit (c. 47-48 C.E.) to Corinth and his establishment there of a Christian community.
In Paul's second letter to the Corinthians, he again refers to himself as an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God and reassures the people of Corinth that they will not have another painful visit, but what he has to say is not to cause pain but to reassure them of the love he has for them.
Letter of Paul to the Galatians, also called Epistle of St. Paul the Apostle to the Galatians, abbreviation Galatians, ninth book of the New Testament, written by St. Paul the Apostle to Christian churches (exact location uncertain) that were disturbed by a Judaizing faction. Paul probably wrote the epistle from Ephesus about 50-52 C.E. to a church he had founded in the territory of Galatia, in Asia Minor.
The Epistle to the Ephesians, also called the Letter to the Ephesians and often shortened to Ephesians, is the tenth book of the New Testament. It was authored by the Apostle Paul about 60–61 C.E. in Rome. Unlike several of the other letters Paul wrote, Ephesians does not address any particular error or heresy. Paul wrote to expand the horizons of his readers, so that they might understand better the dimensions of God's eternal purpose and grace and come to appreciate the high goals God has for the church.
