The Corrections of Mark Adopted by Matthew and Luke


A & C Black 1901

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this volume, Edwin A. Abbott presents evidence that Mark was a common source used by Matthew and Luke. He attempts to account for the rise of variant readings in the Synoptic by appealing to Hebrew sources. For example, where one Gospel mentions “Idumaea” and another “Syria,” Abbott concludes that these readings came from a common Hebrew source that simply read אדם, which refers to either “Idumaea” or “Syria.” Abbot bases his interpretation of the textual history of the Synoptics on commonly recognized textual phenomena in the Hebrew Bible and Septuagint. He then applies these observations to the Synoptics in order to demonstrate the priority of Mark over Matthew and Luke.
