In this volume, Scot McKnight writes an introduction to the Synoptic Gospels as a whole, illuminating their distinctive historical and theological features and their importance within the New Testament canon. Afterwards, three New Testament scholars offer study guides for the Synoptic Gospels; Christopher M. Tuckett writes on Luke, W. R. Telford on Mark, and John Riches on Matthew. Highly readable, this volume is recommended to the New Testament student, as well as anyone interested in the background and content of the Synoptic Gospels.
