To answer your Q about me not being on Ask much lately, i've been busier lately and a little burnt out. Also there seems to b fewer good questions (or its probably just my mood). I'll get back on track.

I'm not sure if this would be classified as a feature, but more of a fact, but did you know that the four main gospels weren't even written by the people they were named for? They were written by their followers.

Well of course thats what they're going to be marked as. It was common in the time period those books were written to title a work that you wrote with the name of someone who is an important figure. Do some research on it, you can find that most modern scientist today believe all of the works were written by their followers. If you had a clue of what went on in that time period, you would understand.

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were followers. Why would someone else do that?
Report as
They were followers of Jesus, but even after Jesus died, they became well known and had their own followers, and they continued to preach what they believed Jesus' word was, and their followers just wrote down what they said.

The Gospel of Matthew was written primarily for the Jews and emphasized how Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of a kingly Messiah. Mark was written primarily for Roman or Gentile Christians, so it includes few Old Testament prophecies, and explains many Jewish words and customs. Jesus is portrayed in Mark as the Divine Servant. Luke was also written primarily for Gentile believers, as it also explains Jewish customs and uses Greek names. Luke set out to write an orderly narrative of the life of Jesus, and presented Jesus as the Son of Man, emphasizing His full humanity. John's Gospel emphasizes Jesus as the Son of God, and includes more of Jesus' revelations about Himself than any of the other gospels. It also gives a much more detailed picture of the events during Jesus' last days.http://www.gotquestions.org/harmony-Gospels.html
