Jesus experienced physical suffering when he made his way to Golgotha or 'The Place of the Skull'. Mark 15:22. Several Christians argue that mark wrote so much about suffering as he wanted to emphasise what it meant to follow Christ, furthermore, by becoming a Christian, you will probably have to suffer for what you believe. Those who do suffer hideous and torturous deaths, like Jesus, will also share in his resurrection. Christianity wouldn't have lasted this long, without the belief of being resurrected, resurrection also proves that Jesus is/was the Son of God, again which proves that God had the power to raise his son from death.
Ultimately, both Matthew and Luke’s gospels have different and and even inaccurate historical information in their birth narratives of Jesus. However, as you saw from the two main examples I gave, the chances are that both authors were more focused on showing the reader just how important Jesus was going to be in relation to Gods kingdom, the Jewish people, as well as the Gentiles. In the end, the gospels were probably not written more to show deeper meaning than accurate historical information. Works Cited Coogan, Michael D., et al.

Explaining His mission to the listeners he requires them to adjust and raise their expectations of Messiah . Jesus is much more than they had anticipated and God's mean of deliverance is through death. Jesus knew that He was misunderstood as Messiah and corrected their view in the gospel of Mark.

1:10). By the death of His only Son, he has reconciled the believer to God, thus reversing the spiritual separation and alienation that had occurred because of sin. Through His resurrection, God defeated and broke the power of Satan, sin and physical death. Even though believers in Christ have the resurrected life safety, they still go through the experience of physical death. But believers deal with death differently than unbelievers.
This influence was noticeable throughout all of the books in this series however it does not make the story automatically anything more then a great story. There are several basics of the Christian faith that C.S. Lewis believed and that are demonstrated in his writing. A few of the beliefs visible in these books are as follows: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the creation of the world and evil entering the world after creation had occurred not at the same moment it was created, and that there will be an Antichrist who will war with the spiritual forces of good.

Jesus predicts his death a number of times throughout Mark’s gospel and Christians have two ways of interpreting this. Either they are the words of Jesus, or Mark constructed them to emphasise the suffering and death of Jesus.
Paul used vital information and personal experiences in this passage to prove that resurrection occurs not only in Christ but in man as well. He first uses sections 3-11 to try and explain how much the gospel is vital to understanding resurrection and it’s historical importance. Paul shows all confidence in the gospel because of the facts of Jesus’s resurrection. The second section is Paul trying to explain the repercussions if resurrection didn’t exist. He explains that all apostles would be false witnessed and they would still be living in their sins.
This was his understanding and one of the reasons why he needed to write about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Paul spoke a great deal about the risen Christ, but there are some key passages that reveal Paul's understanding of the resurrection.
