More About Kurt Aland
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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum (Bible Students)?
The Greatest Book For Textual Criticism of the Gospels Mar 11, 2008
This has all Gospels in parallel columns. Including John. It is the only Synopsis that includes John. And it is extremely beneficial.
The wording in each column follows a pattern, where the words are orientated in the column to correspond to those same words used in the other Gospels (gaps are required in the text, for Gospel accounts with less text). This allows for one to easily see where the text is exactlu the same in each Gospel.
The Gospels stories are arranged, generally in order as in the Gospels. But organized into 367 separate stories. With some doubling of passages.
At the bottom of the page is the NA apparatus critcus.
Between the text and the aparatus, are quotes from all relavant Scripture. From Paul, the other epistles, Acts, and Revalation. From the Ralph's Septuaginta, the Apocrypha, all the Patristic writings, and non-cannonical and Gnostic Gospels. Anything that correlates to the passage in question is listed. Not just the location, but the entire quote. You don't need to pick up anyother text to get the deepest understanding of the Gospels. It's all included.
Idioms and figures of speech, or similar phrases from other locations are also cited and compared after the text, to get a deeper understanding of the Biblical Greek text.
There are tons of apendices. One lists all the stories, in categories, and page number, another lists all the other Scripture cited in the manual, organized by text type, and where it is mentioned.
Another apendix is all the Patristic writings relavant to the Gospals. Mostly in Greek. Some in Latin.
Yet another apendix is the entire Gospel of Thomas, in the Coptic, German, a new English translation, and a Greek back translation. This Gospel is often refered to in the Synopsis for paralells with "the big 4", and can easily be referenced. The Greek back translation is quite helpful for one not entirely fluen in Coptic, and assists in comparison for the Coptic, to help one learn more Coptic.
It is of course of highest quality craftsmanship. Fine quality acid-free paper, stitched binding, and a cloth cover.
This is the book for the deepest study of the Gospels, and of Jesus' life and teachings. The ultimate core of Christianity. It is easy reading, yet in minutes, one can learn a world of knowledge. It is amazing. The greatest book I own, or ever will.
Other versions are available. Greek-German, Greek-English, just English. However, other languages can be distracting, and are irrelavant to textual criticism. I recomend just Greek.
a must have for Gospel studies Jan 31, 2008
The Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum (Synopsis of the Four Gospels) (Greek Edition) is simply a must for Gospel studies - I suppose if one must they can get the Greek-English edition - but still you simply cannot see the differences and similarities between the various pericopes in the English - only the Greek will highlight the differences ranging from word forms, omissions, additions, tenses, etc. Every Bible teaching Pastor should have one of this on his or her desk!
Nothing like it in my library Oct 10, 2005
If you are somewhat familiar with Greek, then this tool will fascinate you. Sitting down and looking at the columns of Greek text for the four gospels side by side is a rare delight.
For textual criticism and comparative gospel studies in the synoptics or with John, this book is unlike anything else in my library. The binding and paper quality are superior as well and it's a great value in my opinion.
As a preaching pastor, I plan to use this extensively the next time I do a sermon series from the gospels. For scholars it is recommended by Gordon Fee in his New Testament Exegesis 3rd edition, which is why I bought it. Fee says you need this resource for gospel exegetical work. I can see why he says that after going through several portions of this great tool.
If you can-buy it!
The Scholarly Standard for Gospels Studies Oct 14, 2003
As with all scholarly reference works, it is important to buy the latest edition. The 15th edition of Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum, published in 1996, not only contains an up-to-date edition of the Greek New Testament (based on the 26th ed. of Nestle-Aland) but includes as an appendix the complete text of the Gospel of Thomas (in Coptic, paralleled with English and German translations) as well as retroverted translations into Greek (supplemented with extant Greek fragments) supplied in the footnotes. As with earlier editions, the parallels are given according to the order in each of the four Gospels (resulting in some duplication), an apparatus supplies the important variants found among the Greek manuscripts, and references to relevant Biblical parallels are provided. Of course, if a Synopsis of the Gospels in English is needed, then the 2nd edition of Aland's Synopsis of the Four Gospels (with Greek and English on facing pages) is the best (but it also costs twice as much).

Prior to ordering this tittle (Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum, Kurt Aland)I would like to now: 1. It is written in greek? 2. Is this 13th edition the same than the 7th of Stuttgart? 3. Size of the page? 4. How many pages has this book? I will appreciate your prompt reply. Thanks.
