Product Description

Needless to say, a book that challenges the modern biblical scholarship assumption of 'Q' is bound to be controversial and to create as much drama as one could expect from the field. But that is exactly what James Edwards does--without apology--when he argues in The Hebrew Gospel and the Development of the Synoptic Tradition, that 'Q' never existed and that the earliest Gospel is the Gospel of the Hebrews known only through brief Patristic quotations.

Through these quotations, Edwards Argues, there is much to suggest the Gospel of the Hebrews, oriented primarily to Jewish readers came to be the primary source for The Gospel of Matthew. Consequently, Matthew must have preceded BOTH Mark and Luke.

Publisher's Description

This book offers a new explanation of the development of the first three Gospels based on a careful examination of both patristic testimony to the “Hebrew Gospel” and internal evidence in the canonical Gospels themselves. James Edwards breaks new ground and challenges assumptions that have long been held in the New Testament guild but actually lack solid evidence.

Author Bio

James R. Edwards is the Bruner-Welch Endowed Professor of Theology at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. His other books include Is Jesus the Only Savior? the 2006 Christianity Today Book of the Year in Apologetics.

Editorial Reviews

Markus Bockmuehl
— University of Oxford
"This landmark study, a decade in the making, advances a bold and fresh interpretation of Gospel origins that seems sure to generate interest, debate, and controversy for some time to come. Against the established 'Two Source' (Mark and 'Q') and the increasingly popular 'Farrer-Goulder' (Mark-Matthew-Luke) hypotheses, Edwards revives an older scholarly fascination with the mysterious 'Hebrew Gospel' that was held in high regard by many church fathers and attributed to Matthew the apostle. Drawing on patient study of patristic quotations and on Semitisms in the Gospel of Luke, Edwards proposes that the Third Evangelist used a single Gospel document in Hebrew both for his special material and for his overall narrative outline (together with Mark and a much more compact 'double tradition' also known to the later canonical Matthew). This is an important and exciting work that offers students an excellent introduction to early Christian views of the Gospel tradition — and it gives Synoptic scholars much to chew on!"

Loren T. Stuckenbruck
— Princeton Theological Seminary
"For a long time, scholarship on the Synoptic Gospels has stalemated around well-worn questions. James Edwards's fascinating and well-researched study opens up an angle that needs to be heard today. This book is a real contribution that will be studied and discussed for years to come!"

    Matt Sutherland
    Jim Edwards just may have found the long lost Hebrew Gospel written by Matthew in the unique portions of the Gospel of Luke (Special Luke). With the unusually high number of Semitisms in Special Luke, Jim makes a compelling case that the Hebrew Gospel was probably one of the major sources used by Luke in writing his Gospel. In doing so, Jim Edwards may have destroyed the concept of Q and has definitely proven a better explanation of the synoptic gospels.
