Author Peter B. Jones has written a distinctive book for those who seek to understand more about the four Gospels of the Bible. Because the four Gospels are usually read separately, it often becomes difficult for readers to follow the differences and similarities inherent in each of the four GospelÂs accounts. But thanks to 17 years of effort by Peter B. Jones, that task of reading the four accounts has become less of a challenge.
The book, titled The Gospel of the Four, is a well-researched and scholarly presentation of the New Testament that sheds new light on the four Gospels by streamlining their teachings. Comparisons between the journeys, teachings, and incidents in the four Gospels are made easier.
The Gospel of the Four sets forth several theories about the writings of the four Gospels, such as how the texts surrounding the Nativity, the Passion, and Resurrection accounts do not contradict each otherÂfor example, why Matthew and Mark have Âafter 6 daysÂ before the Transfiguration, whereas Luke has Âafter 8 days.Â Jones carefully identifies and explains the differences and anomalies between the four Gospels frequently mentioned by believers with detail and verse cross-referencing that allows the readerÂbe they scholar or laymanÂto easily access and understand new and important information regarding the four Gospels.
Christine F. Payne, a reviewer of The Gospel of the Four, said, ÂThis book saves a lot of time; instead of finding one Gospel reference and then thumbing through one's Bible searching for the same quote in another gospel, in this book they are all grouped, enabling the student to make detailed comparisons. Coupled with scholarly observations and not without some new controversy, this reference work provides inspirational and thought-provoking reading.Â
Peter B. Jones hopes to stimulate Christian students in their search for additional knowledge, and help them sift truths from untruths. The author also hopes his book will give the subject the proper credence it had from its original conception and create one natural, flowing Gospel. The book includes a 17-page appendix, consisting of a complete chronological chart of how the scriptures in the four Gospels successively parallel each other, which also highlights the actual number of the fifty miracles of Jesus Christ.
A free sample chapter concerning the death of Jesus Christ as described by the four Gospels is available online at the New Millennium website, http://www.new-millennium.co.uk, where The Gospel of the Four is also available for purchase.
