What these parallels have in common are their use of all four Gospels, Thomas, and for a reason on God knows, Q. Poleridge – I can say this because I have it – also uses the Gospel of Peter and other various fragments.
This is a great asset, but they are missing something that I would love to see corrected.
And they have one thing that needs to have a stake driven into its heart – Q, but that is for another time. Oh yes, and that time will come.
Anyway, I would love to work on with someone a Gospel Parallel that begins with Mark and moves chronologically explaining the differences in development. Why is it that Matthew expounds on Mark? Where is the M-material from? The L-material? The T-material? The parallel, then, would be a Farrer-Goulder-type trajectory.
Thoughts? Anyone want to work on this project with me?
Or any publisher what would want such a project?
