Differences in the Disciples Wording Is Additional Proof and Adds Credibility that Jesus Is Son of God

When the disciples report things, they may differ in details or wording and be basically the same as evidenced in the Lord's Prayer shared by Matthew and Luke below. 

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debs, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:7-13

And it came to pass, that, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught His disciples. And He said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Luke 11:1-4


Additionally, different disciples tell parts of an experience with Jesus, but each heard or saw particular parts depending on where they were at the time which when pieced together gives a more complete picture of what happened, making their witness of Jesus much more credible!

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and He healed them. Matthew Chapter 21: 12-14 [Matthew adds that after throwing over the tables, the blind and lame came to Jesus to be healed.]

And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. And He taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine. Mark 11:15-18 [After casting out the money changers, Mark overhears the scribes and chief priests plotting ways to destroy Jesus, because they were jealous of those who accepted His doctrine, possibly during the time the blind and lame came to Jesus to be healed.]

And He went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. And He taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy Him, and could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear Him. Luke 19:45-48 [Luke, too, overhears the chief priests and scribes being jealous of those who were attentive to Jesus and plotting ways to destroy Him.]

And the Jews' Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not My Father's house an house of merchandise. And His disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten Me up. John 2:13-17 [John adds details that add and lets the reader know that this occurred near the time of the Jew's Passover. He adds more details as to the types of animals being sold and how Jesus drove the animals out with a scourge of small cords.  Additionally, John provides information that lets the reader know that Jesus actions were in fulfillment of scripture of the first part of Psalm 69:9.]

Together, the disciples add details that give a much more complete picture as to the time of year, what all was being sold, how Jesus was healing the blind and lame while the chief priests and scribes plotted ways to destroy Jesus, because many believed His doctrine.
