Editorial Reviews

Review

Before it released its provocative The Five Gospels through a commercial publisher (Macmillan) last year, The Jesus Seminar in 1992 published through its own house, Polebridge Press, The Complete Gospels, a more encompassing, collaborative effort providing fresh translations of the canonical Gospels, the non-canonical Gospels and the Sayings sources. This new revised and commercially published edition of The Complete Gospels moves this prior effort out of the academy and into the hands of a general readership interested in the ancient texts that have motivated the recent quests of scholars like Meier (A Marginal Jew), Crossan (The Historical Jesus) and Sanders (The Historical Figure of Jesus). In addition to the canonical Gospels, this work contains translations of Sayings Gospels like Q, the Gospel of Mary, the infancy Gospels of Thomas and James, fragmentary Gospels like the Egerton and the Secret Gospel of Mark. Here, accompanying the lively translations of each text, are incisive introductions and notes that provide glimpses of the social, historical and literary world occupied by Jesus and the early Christian writers. The dependence of one text upon another is demonstrated through the numerous cross-references. An in-depth glossary and brief essays elaborating key issues of scholarship, e.g., synoptic puzzles, etc., round out the collection. Combining an engaging commentary, lucid and energetic translation and accessible scholarship, this Complete Gospels equips any interested reader to join Meier, Crossan and Sanders in their quest for the historical Jesus.

I understand the editor's attempt to put quotes in modern English. Since the object of the work is to get the true message across, I have no issues others have had. In fact, since on some pages, the footnotes are longer than the text; it is clear the authors to great care in deciding the most accurate translation.

IF the authors are correct, many of Jesus' words are finally translated to their true meaning. Oft quoted translations have new and make more Christian sense.

This is a tough study, but reading the introduction alone can give one a sense that the contributors know their stuff.

Format: Paperback
All Christians are well acquainted with the four gospels of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). Roman Catholics are also familiar with the apocryphal gospels in their version of the Bible that is absent from the King James edition and most other Protestant versions of the Bible. Now in an expanded and updated fourth edition, "The Complete Gospels" as deftly compiled and knowledgeably edited by Robert J. Miller offers new translations of the four New Testament gospels; the Gospels of Thomas, Judas, and Mary; the Q Gospel; the Mystical Gospel of Mark; the Infancy Gospels of James and Thomas; the Egerton Gospel; the Gospel Oxrhynchus; the Gospels of the Hebrews, the Ebionites, and the Nazoreans. Enhanced with the inclusion of an extensive glossary, "The Complete Gospels" also offers nineteen informed and informative essays ranging from 'The Synoptic Puzzle' to 'Lost Gospels And "Non-Gospels". Of special note are eight black-and-white illustrations. An impressive work of meticulous and detailed scholarship, "The Complete Gospels" is a strongly recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library Christian Studies reference collections.

The Complete Gospels gives signficant insight into the early Christian writings that led to gospels. By looking at these various gospels, it becomes more evident as to what writings were not accepted by the church at large and why four were given the role of the most authentic memory. The introduction to the various gospels that I have thus far looked at has been helpful.

It is a complete compendium of the Gospels, including those not contained in the New Testament and sheds much light on their history and meaning.

This new translation breaths fresh life into the four traditional gospels, and adds the important other gospels for a more complete understanding of Jesus and his message.
