The ‘Gospel Problem’ and Why Later Christians Doctored the Gospels
In this eye-opening broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores the literary dependency among the three synoptic gospels. What sources did the author of Matthew and Luke rely on when they assembled their gospels? Moreover, why did the later Christian scribes who assembled the gospels concoct and insert passages into the New Testament? For example, passages that include Jesus sweating blood prior to his arrest (Luke 22:44) do not appear in the best (“Alexandrian” texts) Greek manuscripts.
