More About Gospel Parallels by Burton H. Throckmorton Jr
Burton Throckmorton Junior's 'Gospel Parallels' is a peek into an unknown world for every reader. Most of us can only dream of poring over an ancient codex, finding and decoding an ancient scrap of papyrus or gently easing through pages of vellum which contain the secrets of the known world. This book means that we can retain those dreams but not let them impede us in our search for knowledge. The Gospel Parallels are able to give the theologian and the general reader a view on the earliest translations of the first 3 gospels as well as a pertinent overview of non-canonical figures and pieces of work. This allows the book to feel truly historically situated and gives access to a unique level of contextual information. This is a guide to the most contemporary writers who wrote about Jesus as a very personal figure who spoke, taught and walked the earth, and as such have their own perspectives, sometimes demonstrated by small literary changes. The emphasis can be seen completely transforming through tactical additions and exclusions. The reader can see before their eyes how Matthew was a dominant influence on Mark's Gospel, while Luke was in turn influenced by Mark in his telling. The reader will be able to see where the fathers of the Christian Church chose to edit one another and vicariously join in with their theological bickering on the page. The layout of this book is particularly easy to use for the theological student, allowing quick comparisons and contrasts to be made.
