Synopsis

I just checked on Amazon.com for the Synopsis of the Four Gospels.  This is the book that has the 4 gospels all lined up so you can see the differences and similarities in each of the 4 gospels.  I was amazed to see that the book only costs 18 dollars.  This is a helpful tool that you may be interested in buying.  Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Synopsis-Four-Gospels-Completely-Nestle-Aland/dp/0826705006

Just so you know I do not work for Amazon... haha

Triple Tradition Chart

I found this chart online, it quite helpfully shows the order of events in the synoptic gospels.

Taken from http://www.abu.nb.ca/courses/NTIntro/OrderTriple.htm website of Professor Barry D. Smith, Crandall University.


 

Appendix A


The Order of the Triple
Tradition in the Synoptic Gospels


 

* = Non-Markan material in Luke or Matthew similar to material found in Mark

 ------------ = Material in Matthew and Luke interposed between Markan material

(It should be noted that in many cases, especially in Matthew, other related pericopes are co-joined to the triple tradition; this will be discussed later).
