Book Description

Review A Scholars Version translation arranged to allow close comparison of parallel passages while gaining a more complete and thorough understanding of Biblical events, The Complete Gospel Parallels is highly recommended for any student of scripture, be they scholar or the non specialist general reader. --Midwest Book ReviewBy the descriptive complete the authors mean that this study resource not only includes the parallels among the canonical gospels but extends as well to extra-canonical texts such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Peter, Q, and other pertinent fragments. The authors offer a fresh translation of the texts and lay out the parallels in a simple and efficient manner, with sigla indicating primary parallels and, in different accents, more distant potential connections with other texts.

This will be a very helpful resource for those interested in easy access to the extra-canonical parallels. --The Bible Today Read more
