Parallel Gospels - A Synopsis of Early Christian Writing

Parallel Gospels: A Synopsis of Early Christian Writing is an indispensable guide that enables readers to examine more easily how and where the early Christian gospels--Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Thomas, and Q--agree and disagree. Using his own unique approach to translating the original Greek texts into English, Zeba A. Crook offers the most literal, word-for-word translation available, helping readers to compare the structure, order, style, theology, and vocabulary of each gospel with the others.

FEATURES:

* The word-for-word translation (one English word for every Greek word) allows readers who are not proficient in ancient languages to accurately compare the various versions of the gospels

* A detailed Introduction explains the purpose of this book, while a "How to Read a Synopsis" section outlines how to use it

* Synoptic Study Guides clarify and expand on concepts covered in the gospels and in biblical scholarship

* A Glossary of Greek Terms enables students to look up every English word in the translation and find the Greek word behind it
