Scripture Key to “The Life of Yeshua: A Suggested Reconstruction”

& LOY Materials

Updated: 8-April-2020

The basic premise of “The Life of Yeshua: A Suggested Reconstruction” is that a significant number of the stories recorded in the Synoptic Gospels ultimately derive from a source written in Hebrew, most likely by a disciple who was an eyewitness to the events he recorded. This Hebrew Life of Yeshua was subsequently translated into Greek and underwent a process of editing in which component parts of narrative-sayings complexes were broken up, and these literary fragments were then rearranged according to genre. At a later stage another editor attempted to put the literary fragments together into a continuous narrative. Finally, the canonical authors of Matthew, Mark and Luke incorporated these pre-synoptic sources into their Gospels. (For a full account of the process outlined above, see “Introduction to ‘The Life of Yeshua: A Suggested Reconstruction.’”)

Because we believe the Hebrew Life of Yeshua was ordered differently than any of the canonical Gospels, we have provided a Map of the Conjectured Hebrew Life of Yeshua that presents the Gospel stories in the conjectured order in which they originally appeared. But since readers may wish to simply look up a Gospel passage in the reconstruction we have provided this key for easy reference. Links to the reconstruction and accompanying commentary will appear in this key as they become available.

Readers will notice that not every Gospel passage below has a corresponding reconstruction. This is because not all passages in Matthew, Mark and Luke are believed to have descended from the Hebrew Life of Yeshua. Some verses are the product of the canonical authors themselves as they wrote connecting sentences to stitch their sources together. Other passages are un-Hebraic in their style and appear to have been composed in Greek. This does not mean that the excluded passages are uninspired or inaccurate, but only that they are not derived from the Hebrew Life of Yeshua.
