While there are some passages in the Gospel of Mark that seem to counter the image of the philosopher—namely, the passages that describe Jesus’ emotions—the character of Jesus is often portrayed in terms that are analogous to Graeco-Roman descriptions of the ideal philosophical sage, especially Stoic ones. Similarly, Matthew’s Jesus is frequently characterized in a manner resembling the image of the philosophical sage. More so than in the Gospel of Mark, this applies even to Matthew’s description of Jesus’ emotions, some aspects of which do not correspond to typical images of the philosophical wise man. Also, in Luke the character of Jesus is consistently portrayed in a way that resembles Graeco-Roman descriptions of the ideal philosophical sage. This includes the description of Jesus’ feelings. Of the three Gospels, Mark, Matthew, and Luke, Jesus is most clearly characterized as a philosophical sage in the Gospel of Luke.
