For instance, the temptation in the desert. It was only Jesus and Satan there. Who could have recorded that?

Or the prayers of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane? Jesus went up alone while the disciples slept. Who could have recorded the words He spoke there as an eye witness?

    The simplest explanation is that Jesus told his disciples afterwards. – curiousdannii Nov 20 '18 at 0:31
  • That seems simple enough. Although for Gethsemane His disciples would have definitely had to ask Him post resurrection. – Jair Crawford Nov 20 '18 at 0:37
  • @JairCrawford Could have also been in Gethsemane when he told them to pray. “Teacher, what have you been praying about?” “I’ve been praying: ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.’ Now pray, and stay awake this time!” – Thunderforge Nov 20 '18 at 3:38
  • The answer lies on the Spirit of Truth and who is Wisdom. Jesus said he will pray to the Father to send "another advocate" to testify to the fullness of Truth of who Jesus is, and also the another advocate will remind all the Apostles of the Truth.The answer is who assisted the Gospel writers on Jesus accounts. Read Ven.Mary of Agreda there is one person who assisted all the Gospel Writers, even instructed them not to write anything about Her only what is need to glorify Jesus. Who is the Spirit of Truth, that is a person who is Anointed by Wisdom. as Wisdom1:7 knows & heard all things. – marian agustin Nov 20 '18 at 13:10

    It is not claimed by anyone that any of the Gospels is only an eyewitness account. All of them contain at least something that the author could not have seen for himself. – DJClayworth Nov 20 '18 at 21:04
