Chronological Gospel harmonization


#1

What do you think of reading chronological Gospel harmonies? For the first time I am doing it here

And it's rather amazing. I've never done this before, but now that I have started I'm having a rather tough time stopping. It's neat to have a general idea of the chronology of the events portrayed in all four Gospels, the different wording etc.

Any thoughts?

I'm more the type of guy who likes to see each gospel on their own without mixing or conflating any or all of them, and synopses like these are I think useful for that.

I actually made a similar thread a while back; I didn't link to this particular pdf, but I did post a few others you might also find interesting: forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=797582

Thank you very much!

After looking through some of the links, I rather like the one I posted the most so far. It’s kinda exactly what i’ve been looking for.

Why do you like the one you posted best? How is it better?

St. Augustine did this over 1600 years ago, you might want to compare the two: The Harmony of the Gospels.

I like how every single word is posted side by side of the entire Gospel, chronologically.

Which kind of leads really into an interesting question: what do you mean by "chronologically"?
