Luke 1:3-4

Luke 1:3-4 It seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.

So Luke starts his gospel. Do we have an orderly accout that enables us to be certain about what we have been taught? Are the different narratives that we hear, read and believe different - and therefore, dissonant and uncertain - or do the strands of our faith cohere in a logical and consistent pattern so that we can be certain of what we believe?

To adapt an old Chinese saying it depends which of the two dogs sitting on you shoulders you listen to, if you listen to the black one then the differences in the accounts will speak of confusion and deceit thereby weakening ones certainty. However if you listen to the white dog they will strengthen ones certainty and thereby faith also.
