Parallel Lives of Jesus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Parallel Lives of Jesus free pdf In this highly readable introduction to the Gospels, Edward Adams demonstrates how the four canonical Gospels function separately--as unique accounts of Jesus' life--and as narrative renditions of a shared story: the Fourfold Gospel. Building on the premise that the Gospels are ancient biographies or "lives of Jesus," Adams examines parallel Gospel passages, highlighting the similarities and differences between them. He begins by approaching the four Gospels generally, then looks at each of them individually, and finally considers six key Gospel passages to further explore the unity and plurality of the Gospels in a more focused way. Adams's lucid prose helps to make this text ideal for beginning students of the Gospels.
