A Gospel Synopsis of the Greek Text of Matthew, Mark and Luke: A Comparison of Codex Bezae and Codex Vaticanus
Read-Heimerdinger, Jenny and Josep Rius-Camps, editors

Leiden: Brill, 2014 pp. xxi + 315. $240.00

Series Information
New Testament Tools, Studies and Documents, 45


Description: The aim of this new Gospel Synopsis is to enhance the study of the Synoptic Gospels and provide insights into the synoptic problem through a clear presentation of the Greek text. Jenny Read-Heimerdinger and Josep Rius-Camps set out the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke in turn, comparing each line by line with the other two. A further innovative feature is that the text is presented according to two important Gospel manuscripts, Codex Bezae and Codex Vaticanus, rather than the usual eclectic edition of the Greek New Testament. Thus, not only are the differences between the Gospels clearly visible but also, the complexity of their relationship is more easily identified through the comparison of two divergent manuscripts representative of distinct traditions.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches
