Matthean and Lukan Special Material
A Brief Introduction with Texts in Greek and English
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Matthean and Lukan Special Material provides students and scholars with a concise introduction to the Synoptic Problem, a convenient presentation of the texts (in Greek and in English translation) that may represent the so-called M and L sources, and a succinct and helpful bibliography. Brice Jones has greatly facilitated study of this material, for which all who investigate the Synoptic Gospels will be grateful."

"Here students and scholars will find a concise and convenient presentation of the material unique to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke--the so-called Sondergut traditions. Thus Jones enables readers to reconsider traditions that might have belonged to the M and L sources . . . This is a critical scholarly tool, presenting Greek texts with facing English translations in a highly accessible format."

"Brice Jones has compiled a highly useful tool--one of those tools that we all wish that we had had a long time ago! Surprisingly enough, no one had bothered since B. H. Streeter first proposed the existence of unique Matthean and Lukan material to compile [it] in one handy volume. Jones has not only done that, but he has provided a very helpful introduction to the Synoptic Problem and the role that M and L play within it."

"I warmly welcome this useful and unique tool from Brice Jones: here students and scholars will be able to access conveniently the Greek and English texts of the distinctive material in Matthew and Luke. Study of these texts will be much easier with this book. Combined with an excellent, lucid introduction to the study of the Synoptic Problem, this is a fine resource. I look forward to using it and to recommending it to others."
