About the Book

This well researched and scholarly presentation of The Gospel of the Four shows how all four texts parallel each other intrinsically without the anomalies frequently and erroneously mentioned by many even devoted believers. It is a complete synchronisation of the Synoptic Gospels with the Gospel of John, which takes account of all the relevant arguments relating to this particular subject. The author carefully identifies and distinguishes differences and similarities in the four narrative accounts of the life and ministry of Jesus and provides passages in quotation and chapter and verse references revealing the fact that Jesus made several different visits to towns in Galilee and Judea, purged the temple on two occasions and gave the Sermon on the Mount more than once. An examination of the timing and nature of the miracles also provides fresh insight into that aspect of the ministry of Jesus. This is a considerable work of New Testament scholarship, which will surely stimulate Christian scholars and layman in their search for additional truth. The mass of detail and cross referencing should not act as a deterrent to the general Christian reader because the author has taken great care to present his argument and postulations in a coherent and accessible format and style. Regardless of whether readers agree or disagree with some or all of the author’s assertions, this work will undoubtedly help some to find new truth. The author wishes no more than to shed further light and help, “…to give knowledge of salvation to His (God’s) people by the remission of sins. Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the Sunrise from on High has visited us. To give light to them who sit in the darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:77-79).
