  Synoptic Gospels - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Synoptic Gospels is a term used by modern New Testament scholars for the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, and Luke of the New Testament in the Bible.
They are three of the four gospels, of which the Gospel of John is not included due to his different style and approach to the subject matter.
Furthermore, the two source hypothesis argues that all three Synoptic gospels used a common source referred to as the Q Manuscript, and, although as yet this hypothetical document has not been found or identified amongst early Christian texts, it appears to have some similarity with the ancient noncanonical Gospel of Thomas.

 Gospel of Mark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Gospel of Mark is traditionally the second of the New Testament Gospel, ascribed to Mark the Evangelist.
The gospel itself is anonymous, but as early as Papias in the early 2nd century, a text was attributed to Mark, a disciple of Peter, who is said to have recorded the Apostle's discourses.
Finally, some scholars dispute the connection of the gospel with persecution, identified with persecution at Rome, asserting that persecution was widespread, albeit sporadic beyond the borders of the city of Rome.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Synoptics
John the Baptist, is chiefly confined to Galilee, and is set forth in certain epochs, as the early Galilean ministry, the crisis in Galilee, the ministry in Perea and Jerusalem, and the tragic end in the Holy City followed by a glorious Resurrection.
It is undoubted, too, that the general background of the Gospels is Semitic in thought and forms of expression, and even that Semitic documents (for instance, Christ's genealogies) have been used by their authors.
One work like our Gospel of St. Mark, if not identical with it, is the source of the narratives common to the first three Gospels, and the other, containing the Sayings of Jesus, is the source of the didactic matter common to St. Matthew and St. Luke.

 Synoptic Gospel Survey
I am covering the synoptic gospels separate from John as they cover common material and have a common emphasis separate to a degree from John.
In particular my impression is that the synoptics focus on Lordship of Christ and quality of faith issues, whereas John focusses on Christ as Savior and the object of faith issues.
The synoptics clarify the Jewish roots of the faith and like the Jews wandering in the desert before entering the promise land, they deal with material appropriate to prepare one to understand the gospel of John and the letters.

 Synoptic Gospels Primer - Gospel Outlines
The fact that 2 or 3 gospels repeat several blocks of stories or sayings in the same order is evidence of the dependence of the author of one text on another.
So when one or two gospels diverge from the sequence of material in the third, it is evident that some author(s) deliberately edited the original source by inserting, omitting or transposing certain items.
These Synoptic Gospels Outlines are prepared as a tool to further study of the Synoptic Problem.

 The Gospel of Thomas
The Christology and Protology of the Gospel of Thomas
If Thomas were dependent upon the synoptic gospels, it would be possible to detect in the case of every Thomas-synoptic parallel the same tradition-historical development behind both the Thomas version of the saying and one or more of the synoptic versions.
The gospel, therefore, charts the course of salvation as a study in interpretation, providing the elixir of life to those for whom the secret of the kingdom is disclosed in the interpretation of Jesus' words.

 BOOKS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT: THE GOSPELS
Gospel is a translation of the Greek word "euangelion" which means "good news." About 50 gospels were written in the first and second century CE; each was believed to be accurate by various groups within the early Christian movement.
Since they regard all of the gospels as inerrant (free of error) and inspired by God, it matters little who wrote them, when they were written, and which author had access to which documents.
This is a gospel that was written by a member of a Gnostic Christian group.

 Synoptic Gospels   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
David Dungan’s text sets the study of the Synoptic Problem within a larger framework of theological, ecclesiastical, ideological, and technological history, showing how the seemingly provincial issue of the interrelationship among the Gospels reflects and was influenced by much larger issues in cultural and intellectual history.
For over a century Gospel scholarship has accepted a hypothetical document called Q as one of the major sources of the Synoptic Gospels.
Commentaries further enhance the gospels by explaining their meaning, along with historic dates and a complete section rendering the four gospels as a single unit in easy to read, uncluttered and unbiased English.

GH was also called “the Gospel according to the Apostles”; “the Gospel according to the Twelve”; and “the Gospel according to Matthew” and one of these may have been its name among the Hebrews who used it.
Eusebius refers to GH as “the Gospel that is spread abroad among the Jews in the Hebrew tongue” (Theophina 4:12 on Mt. 10:34-36) and “the Gospel [written] in Hebrew letters” (ibid on Mt. 25:14f).
The Gospel of Luke was drawn largely from GH and was composed to present the message of Yeshua to the Sadducees.

 Mark's Use of the Gospel of Thomas
One of the most interesting facets of the study of the Gospel of Thomas, the Coptic manuscript that has made such an impact on Biblical studies at the end of the present century, is that so many sayings in the canonical Gospel of Mark are also found in Thomas.
Throughout chapters 1-8:22 and 11-12 of the Gospel of Mark, whenever Jesus speaks to his associates or when he is said to speak in parables, a full 75% of the time he does so with words paralleled to one degree or another in the Gospel of Thomas.

 The Synoptic Problem
The Gospel of John is not included in the "Synoptics" because it approaches the subject of Christ from a different standpoint.
"The Synoptic problem is the problem of stating what the literary relationship among the Synoptics is in such a way that their similarities and differences are explained"(Moreland 152).
It indicates further that the Gospel was taken to Rome and to the uttermost parts of the earth.

As long ago as 1778 G E Lessing attempted to solve the synoptic problem by proposing that the gospels were different translations of an original Aramaic gospel—the story of Jesus told by his companions and early Jewish followers.
But the best explanation is that two of the gospel writers used the work of the other, and, where they used it, they copied it virtually word for word.
We have seen that, in the sections common to all three synoptic gospels, passages are constructed too similarly to be independent.

 The Logia Translation Hypothesis Homepage
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.
Moreover, it is probable that some of the wording of the text of the synoptic gospels as we have received them is the result of assimilation of the original wording of the text of one synoptic gospel to the wording of another.
Many other instances of duality in the synoptic gospels are similarly, according to the LTH, the consequence of the translator of the Aramaic Logia deliberately re-using wording of material he had already translated in order to expand other pieces of material.

 A statistical approach to the synoptic gospel problem
Briefly, the synoptic gospels are Mark, Matthew, and Luke.
The study also leaves open the possibility that Mark, our earliest gospel, is itself based on earlier works, and I think this seems likely.

 The Problem of the Fourth Gospel: Chapter 5
Let it be borne in mind that preference for the Synoptic representation as against 'John' is not invariably bound up with, dogmatic prejudices—with the view that the historic Jesus never outsteps the limits of the purely human—but that it is compatible with a recognition of the claims made by the Johannine Christ.
It is open to doubt whether the Synoptic and Johannine representations are so mutually exclusive as to necessitate a categorical 'either—or'; and the probability is that the discrepancy may be in part accounted for on the theory of diversity in respect of choice of matter.
In the Fourth Gospel he disputes as the dialectician; ambiguous is his language and mystical his style; he deals to such an extent in obscurities that even very learned people are quite in the dark as to the real significance of many of his words.

 rs10: Reflection on a Synoptic Gospel Passage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Studying the gospels as distinct efforts to tell the story of Jesus in different ways is new to many of you.
It may have parallels with other passages in other gospels (for instance, the crucifixion scene that is shared by all three) or it may be a passage found in only one (for instance, the Annunciation).
If your passage has parallels, you may wish to contrast the role its parallel plays in other gospels (even, optionally, John), but this is of secondary importance compared to the primary task of showing the roles it plays in its own literary context.

By the second century, believers saw the difference among the four Gospels as a scandal, and pagan philosophers were focusing their counterattack on it.
Dungan (religious studies, Univ. of Tennessee) considers the problem of the three Synoptic Gospels in terms of four components: the composition and sources of the Gospels, the question of the canon, text criticism, and hermeneutics.
Others have given sketchy accounts of the debate over the synoptic gospel before 1800, but Dungan sets forth a structured history from its inception in the second century and elucidates for the first time the political and economic agendas that informed biblical interpretations.
