The Common Tradition of the Synoptic Gospels in the Text of the Revised Version

by ,

Macmillan and Co. 1884

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This volume offers a harmony of the Synoptic Gospels in columns of aligned text. A unique contribution of this work is the bold text in each of the Synoptic accounts that delineates what is known as the “Common” or “Triple Tradition” in Synoptic scholarship. This tradition, the authors argue, predates any of the Gospels and is the closest thing to the original account of Jesus of Nazareth. Edwin A. Abbott and William George Rushbrooke present this harmony after providing the reader with an extensive introduction to the Synoptic problem.
