Description: In this book Meynet offers an entirely new perspective on the study of the Synoptic Gospels, adding further insights within the growing body of modern research into the meanings of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Utilizing the rhetorical method of analysis, of which he is a leading proponent, Meynet studies the composition of the Gospels as they were written and makes it possible to understand them in systematic and until now unexpected ways. The author does not approach these Gospels on the basis of introductory questions, but instead combines critical analysis with the evangelists own persuasive intentions
