A New Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels
CATEGORY: Biblical Studies
Meynet offers a new perspective on the study of the Synoptic Gospels adding further insights within the growing body of modern research into the meanings of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Utilizing the rhetorical method of analysis, he studies the composition of the Gospels and makes it possible to understand them in systematic and unexpected ways.
“This is indeed a trail-blazer in Synoptic studies. The fact that the French original is made available in English within a year of its publication is remarkable. This means that the inﬂuence of this novel approach to the Synoptics will be far reaching in the scholarly community”. — Academia
