Just as the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ, the New Testament is all about Jesus Christ, and conveys to us the ultimate truth of the Divine Revelation. The four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John within the New Testament, are the heart of sacred scripture because they are the primary witnesses of the life and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Because of this, they hold a very unique place in the Church.

At the Last Supper with his apostles on the eve of his passion Jesus anticipated, that is, both symbolized his free self-offering and made it really present: “This is my Body which is given for you” (Luke 22:19), “This is my Blood which is poured out...” (Matthew 26:28) Thus he both instituted the Eucharist as the “memorial” (1 Corinthians 11:25) of his sacrifice and instituted his apostles as priests of the new covenant.
