The evidence in the gospels leads to the conclusion that when a gospel was intended for Jews, the author based its structure on the 5 books of the Jewish Law.

This book also explains why Roman authorities would have looked favorably on the gospels. Are the Gospels Dramas? This book says YES.< Less
