Matthew’s genealogy goes through Solomon and is "Jewish" in content, Judah was the lion

Mark is bullish in writing, straight to the point and emphasizes Jesus’ miracles.

Luke's genealogy goes back to Adam and he was a physician (people)

John is unlike the “synoptic” gospels just like an Eagle occupies a different sphere to the others, he details Jesus’ heavenly identity.

These are the four “living creatures” of Israel, the leading tribal emblems.

Revelation 4v6-7: “And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.”

4 gospels? Surely there are more:

Gospel Of Thomas - https://www.gospels.net/thomas/

Gospel Of Mary - https://www.gospels.net/mary

Gospel of Judas - https://www.gospels.net/judas

Gospel Of Philip - https://www.gospels.net/philip

Gospel Of Peter - https://www.gospels.net/peter

I always find it strange that we firmly believe in Jesus and his 12 disciples but then only take the written Gospels of 4 of them and reject the rest.

There were many fabricated writings in the Middle Ages, written to support new and false doctrines, the original four are consistent with previous scripture and what actually happened since.

How can Jesus be the messiah if he failed to fulfill the Biblical prophecies?

He can't, which one(s) do you think he failed to fulfil?
