The Gospels in the Second Century eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 336 pages of information about The Gospels in the Second Century.
’who weep, for they shall laugh’ (not on those ’who mourn, for they shall be comforted’), with an exact translation of St. Luke and difference from St. Matthew, the clause relating to those who are persecuted and reviled:  then follow the ‘woes;’ to the rich, ’for ye have received your consolation;’ to ’those who are full, for they shall hunger;’ to ‘those who laugh now, for they shall mourn:’  and so on almost verse by verse.

It is surely needless to go further.  There are indeed very rarely what seem to be reminiscences of the other Gospels (e.g. ‘esurierunt discipuli’ in the parallel to Luke vi. 1), but the total amount of resemblance to St. Luke and divergence from St. Matthew and St. Mark is overwhelming.  Of course the remainder of the evidence can easily be produced if necessary, but I do not think it will long remain in doubt that our present St. Luke was really the foundation of the Gospel that Marcion used.
