The Transmission of the Life of Jesus

Assuming the first written account of the words and acts of Jesus may have been a Greek document is a useful insight that con help to clarify the transmission process that culminated in the Synoptic Gospels. This assumption does not, however, affect the methodology of the Jerusalem School. Its members will continue to analyze the Synoptic Gospels’ texts on the basis of Robert Lindsey’s theory that Luke had two oncanonical sources, the first of which was also used by Matthew.
