Abstract The purpose of the investigation is to compare and contrast the fourfold Gospel with four categories for understanding the motif of disagreement within the Greco-Roman literary tradition. I examine 16 Greco-Roman authors using more than 40 separate texts in order to document the case for the convention of disagreement., Under each rubric discussed, I undertake a comparison with and contrast to the fourfold Gospel. The net result of this investigation concludes that, in contrast to the four examined literary criteria, the authors of the fourfold Gospel should not be charged with intentionally contradicting each other.
