The highly popular Sheffield New Testament Guides are being reissued in a new format, grouped together and prefaced by leading North American scholars. This new format is designed to ensure that these authoritative introductions remain up-to-date and accessible to seminary and university students of the New Testament while offering a broader theological and literary context for their study. In this volume, Scot McKnight writes an introducton to the Synoptic Gospels as a whole, illuminating their distinctive historical and theological features and their importance within the New Testament canon.
