A Harmony of the Synoptic Gospels for Historical and Critical Study

by ,

Charles Scribner’s Sons 1917


A Harmony of the Synoptic Gospels, by Ernest DeWitt Burton and Edgar Johnson Goodspeed helps students of the Bible ascertain the relationship between the three Synoptic Gospels. The purpose of the Burton and Goodspeed Harmony is not mere harmonization of a historical order of events. Rather, it exhibits the facts of parallelism as they stand in the Gospels, both facilitating and promoting the historical study of the Gospels. The harmony contributes to a better understanding of the relationship of the Gospels to one another, and to a fuller knowledge of the life and teachings of Jesus.
