BIBL 593 The Synoptic Gospels


This elective will offer a historical and literary — critical examination of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, with attention to how the Synoptic Gospels may be taught and preached in the church. Students will study the “triple tradition” in parallel version (Throckmorton or Aland), with a Greek language optional hour. Written work will include a book review, research paper or sermon series. Texts, in addition to gospel parallel, will include Stein’s Studying the Synoptic Gospels and commentaries chosen by the student with consent of the instructor.
