“Luke’s introduction reflects the Greek Historical literature that he was so familiar with. John’s introduction, on the other hand, reflects the Jewish wisdom literature7 of his culture.” (Page 16)

“the Samaritan woman, the sinful, uneducated, foreign outsider” (Page 102)

“Jesus and his disciples celebrated the actual Passover. John knew that.” (Page 558)

“This call may seem too sudden to merit such a response. But we must remember that these four have already traveled with Jesus for about a year now (cf. Jn 1:35–51) and have just witnessed a miraculous catch of fish. Jesus enters into their domain and proves his power. He now calls them into his domain to be empowered to fish for men. What else is there to do when such a one as Jesus calls you to his vocation?” (Page 123)

“This is only the second event of the life of Jesus to be recorded in all four Gospels. The first was the feeding of the 5,000. The disciples know something significant is about to happen. Jesus walked wherever he went. Yet now, less than two miles from his final destination, he mounts a donkey?!” (Page 492)

    I am currently undertaking a one-year study of the Harmony of the Gospels using all 10 available Harmonies in my library. I enjoy Mark Moore's "The Chronological Life of Christ, revised ed." It is the Harmony I start my daily study with. There is one thing I do not care for, though. In an effort (I assume) to make his book more relatable to today's younger generation Mark Moore often uses contemporary somewhat juvenile popular language in his commentary. Here are some of the many examples of his comments. On Jn 4:43-45: "Small town boy goes to the big city and beats up the big-wigs." or "...he comes to Galilee with a little fame under his belt..." (pg 111). On Lk 4:16-31a: "Here he went to school, learned a trade, competed in sports, etc. He was the hometown boy, making it big." (pg 114). Although not a big issue, I personally prefer a more scholarly tone. Another thing I immediately noticed is the fact that "The Chronological Life of Christ" appears to somewhat follow the outline, method and pattern employed in "The Four-Fold Gospel" by Philip Y. Pendleton and John William McGarvey. Matter of fact, frequently the commentaries in both Harmonies appears very similar, almost as if some phrases have been copied and slightly paraphrases from "The Four-Fold Gospel" Harmony's commentary. The introduction to Mark Moore's work states that it is based on the "NIV Harmony of the Gospels" by Thomas and Gundry and makes no mention of using "The Four-Fold Gospel", though, which is a much earlier work. In all, "The Chronological Life of Christ, revised ed." is still worth reading. It is is not the first work to put the Gospels in chronological order, but aside from providing a deeper understanding of Christ's life and ministry, it offers a lot of additional religious, historical, and cultural information of interest. I would recommend this work to others.

    The up and down of this text by Mark E Moore: The down side: Moore restates the verses again after quoting the passages offering little insight into the parables or other meanings derived from the words and actions of Christ. The up-side: This same practice by Moore serves a valuable purpose. It is a functional 'classroom' text allowing a review of the scripture, 'some' critical analysis, but most importantly it opens the door for the instructor of any class to control a lot of the details. Even of more paramount pertinence, Moore's approach allows the class to contribute in discussion and get things moving in this venue. In other words, the down-side is also the up-side in this regard. For classroom purposes, it is excellent.

    This is an absolutely outstanding book. It rearranges events in Jesus's life in chronological order, which doesn't sound particularly impressive -- but, using multiple source materials, Dr. Moore reaches conclusions that offer new insights into both Jesus's life and the affect it had on those around him. The result is not only a compelling read (flowing more like a novel than a traditional biography), but an almost visceral experience. The book shows how events and interactions, dispersed in bits across the Gospels, came together in "real" time. As a result, Dr. Moore brings to life the changing dynamics of first-century Israel -- generating a palpable sense that "you are there" as things progress toward an inexorable end. Very highly recommended!
