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.
