RELATIVE ORDER OF THREE SYNOPTICAL
GOSPELS. [The Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke are arranged in three parallel columns in the following tables, in their relative order. There are five tables. On the outer margins of each table are consecutive numbers, for more easy reference to any parallel passages required. Each table is numbered in Roman numerals. Observe the following direction :
• Put before any text shews that no parallel passage occurs in the other two Gospels._?, ? or 1,3 or 2,3 indicate the columns in which parallels occur. The headings introduced, e.g. M. I. 6; L. 1. 8, refer not to chapters and verses, but to the table and the marginal numbers opposite the line in which the passage referred to is to be found.-Ed.]
NOTE. Mark is the most strictly chronological. Luke follows him closest where he is so; but the middle of the gospel is a collection of instructions not chronological, but morally connected.
Matthew orders his materials, or the Holy Spirit by him, to shew the dealing with the Jews, as come to them according to promise, and the change to the new thing; and, though prophetically speaking of Church as well as kingdom, leads Christ, at close, to Galilee, with the residue, and does not follow the history to the ascension, but he alone gives the history of the resurrection itself. Harmonies lose the distinctive power of the gospel.
I believe Mat. xxviii. 1, to mean the evening of Saturday, crepuscule of evening not morning; ver. 5 is a new paragraph. Luke xxiv. 34 alludes to the appearing to Peter, of which Paul speaks. Luke's account as to women is quite general. Mary Magdalene was at the sepulchre when it was dark. Peter and John go, and go away home. Mary remains and sees Jesus. When the women come they see the angels and flee. Mary Magdalene, taught of Jesus, goes and tells disciples. As the others went, Jesus meets them, and desires them to tell disciples He was going into Galilee. Mary Magdalene was to tell them He was going to the Father. It was only in their flight the women said nothing to any one. After meeting Jesus they we: probably re-assured ; and, at any rate, afterwards they told the angels told them, as we learn from the Lord goi ; } Emmaus, and see Luke xxiv. 9. But he unites all in a me statement, as often, and adds other women. Ver. 12 the Greek has not “ then." The accounts are very refer to object of gospel.
