New Testament Studies, vol. 2: The Sayings of Jesus


G. P. Putnam’s Sons, Williams and Norgate 1908

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“In St. Matthew are found about 112 words, and in St. Luke (without the Acts) about 261, which occur in these gospels and do not occur elsewhere in the New Testament.” Harnack prefaced New Testament Studies, vol. 2: The Sayings of Jesus with those words, analyzing the instances of each of those words within those two gospels. Adolph Harnack’s linguistic and historical investigation of Matthew and Luke are thought-provoking and provide a fresh way to see the words of Jesus as told in those two New Testament resources.

About Adolph von Harnack

Adolph von Harnack born in 1851 in Estonia, lived a life devoted to the study of church history and theology. He became a professor at age 24, and taught at the Universities of Leipzig, Giussen, Marbarg, and Berlin until his retirement at age 70. Although he was widely considered to be one of the most influential members of the Protestant church at the turn of the twentieth century, the Church of Germany believed his theology to be off-base and did not allow him to become an accredited clergyman. Harnack’s passion for the history of the Church led him to pen numerous resources on the matter, his most famous work perhaps being What Is Christianity? He continued his studies and writing until his death in 1930.
