Early Christian Writings
"All of Early Christianity: The New Testament, Apocrypha, Gnostics, and Church Fathers."
By Peter Kirby

The Five Gospels Parallels
"...is designed to be a teaching tool for introductory level classes in New Testament and Christian Origins. For this reason, and because of the particular constraints of HTML, it does not offer the same level of detail as a printed synopsis (i.e. Throckmorton 1979, 1992; Aland 1985). Its advantage is that it allows more "play" than a printed synopsis and that it presents the materials in the same order as the canonical Gospels."
Edited by John W. Marshall, Dept. for the Study of Religion, University of Toronto

"Download a paper presented at the 1999 SBL International Meeting in Finland (with four additional pages of hand-out appended...download a paper presented at the 2001 SBL International Meeting in Rome."
Another solution to the Synoptic Problem..."It affirms that many short reports in Aramaic, the Aramaic Logia, were composed by the apostle Matthew during, and soon after the ministry of Jesus...The LTH therefore entails that virtually all the contents of the synoptic gospels were derived from the Greek Logia, and that the Greek Logia together formed a document that was larger than any synoptic gospel."
