More About Cloth

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Kurt Aland (1915-1994) was professor of Church History and New Testament Textual Criticism at Muenster (Germany), where he founded the Institute for New Testament Textual Research. He served as co-editor of Eberhard and Erwin Nestle's Novum Testamentum graece and was a member of the editorial committee of the Greek New Testament. Aland and his wife coauthored one of the standard introductions to New Testament textual criticism, and he edited the most widely used New Testament text of the present period.

Synopsis of the Four Gospels  Mar 15, 2007
This is a good edition to out study material used in Bible study. Adds much the study, easy to use and apply.
Synopsis of the Four Gospels : Completely Revised on the Basis of the Greek Text of the Nestle Aland (English-only text)  Mar 8, 2007
never been used, very high quality
One of the most essential study aids to the serious study of the Gospels  Jun 11, 2006
This volume represents the best effort by NT scholar Kurt Aland to arrange in chronological order the events recorded in the Gospels. Though this would in the hands of any scholar involve some degree of interpretation, the order here is largely based on that of the Gospel of Mark, which is generally thought to have provided much of the chronology for the writers of Matthew and Luke.

If one wants to gain the best possible understanding of the gospels as a whole and of the uniqueness of each individual gospel, a tool such as this is invaluable. One could search out parallel passages in each gospel in one's own Bible, but it is much easier to use a tool such as this. Sometimes the differences are minor, sometimes more substantial. Reading through the gospels in this edition will also highlight how different Luke, with its emphasis on the poor and constant critique of the wealthy, is from Matthew and Mark, or John from the other three.

The translation used is the Revised Standard Version, which is widely acknowledged to be one of the most accurate. Many fundamentalists dislike it because of the way it translates some portions of the Old Testament that in the KJV had been translated in a way to prefigure the New Testament, but even fundamentalists have not questioned the accuracy of the NT translation. Footnotes allude to some variants among the Greek manuscripts, while end material includes a helpful outline of the contents of the four gospels and an index of gospel passages.

A word about the English only versus the Greek-English. If you are a very serious student of the NT with facility in Greek, you should get the twin language version. My own Greek is very rusty and I found the very large Greek-English edition to be unwieldy and hard to use. Even if you own the Greek-English edition, I would recommend the English only edition. It is comparatively inexpensive and I find it far easier to use in every way. But like I said, my Greek at this point of my life is pretty weak. I retain enough to follow a discussion of Greek terms in commentaries, but not enough to read on my own.

After a couple of good translations of the Bible, a good Bible dictionary, and a Bible atlas, this is the New Testament tool that I most frequently use and most highly recommend.
Don't get confused by these reviews  Jan 11, 2006
I was confused when looking for the greek and english version of this book because this site carries both the greek and english version plus the english only version. However, the reviews for the two books are exactly the same. The greek and english version has the ISBN# 3438054051 and is 700+ pages, where the english only version has a different ISBN# is has half the number of pages. Hope this helps you in your buying and saves you the 15 minutes I lost scratching my head.
must have for bible teachers  Dec 1, 2005
Well bound, sturdy, durable. This places the four canonical Gospels in parallel columns, arranged to correspond to each other when there is repetition. It is in English. Unfortunately it is in the RSV (ESV or even NIV would be preferable). A 'must-have' for any pastor's or Bible teachers' library.
