"This text departs most markedly from the usual elementary Greek book in the centrality of its graded Reader. The method which takes the student through a progression of grammar lessons each concluding with a few sentences for translation".

The third edition of THE HARMONY OF THE GOSPELS IN MODERN ENGLISH; THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST by Fred R. Coulter gives the reader am easy-to-understand, step-by-step account of the life of Jesus Christ. The message and purpose of the TRUE Jesus come alive throughout its pages. A new precise translation of the Scriptures conveys the full impact of the words of the Gospel writers. Using the framework of the Hebrew Calendar, synchronized with Julian Calendar, the true chronology of Jesus' life has been accurately depicted. The Scriptural and chronological facts reveal that Jesus was born in the fall of 5 BC -not on December 25 in 1 AD. He was crucified on Passover day in the spring of 30 AD, and His body was in the tomb for three days and three nights - a full 72 hours. He was resurrected at the end of the weekly Sabbath-not a sunrise on Easter Sunday. The commentary sections that explain these facts are technically accurate and thoroughly researched in order to aid the serious Bible student and minster. Graphically illustrated charts simplify such chronologically important events as The Birth of Jesus, Six Days Before Jesus' Last Passover, and The Three Days and Three Nights in the Tomb. Additional features include a synchronized Hebrew and Julian calendar, topical and Scriptural indices, a complete bibliography and strategically placed footnotes. The flavor of the Holy Land has been captures through a unique combination of over 100 photographs, as well as original artwork depicting Jerusalem and the temple of the first century. Maps showing Jesus' journeys help the reader to "travel with Him." These features combine to make this the most complete harmony ever available.

This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life Book I. The treatise opens with a short statement on the subject of the authority of the Evangelists, their number, their order, and the different plans of their narratives. Augustine then prepares for the discussion of the questions relating to their harmony, by joining issue in this book with those who raise a difficulty in the circumstance that Christ has left no writing of His own, or who falsely allege that certain books were composed by Him on the arts of magic. He also meets the objections of those who, in opposition to the evangelical teaching, assert that the disciples of Christ at once ascribe more to their Master than He really was, when they affirmed that He was God, and inculcated what they had not been instructed in by Him, when they interdicted the worship of the gods. Against these antagonists he vindicates the teaching of the Apostles, by appealing to the utterances of the Prophets, and by showing that the God of Israel was to be the sole object of worship, who also, although He was the only Deity to whom acceptance was denied in former times by the Romans, and that for the very reason that He prohibited them from worshipping other gods along with Himself, has now in the end made the Empire of Rome subject to His Name, and among all nations has broken their idols in pieces through the preaching of the Gospel, as He had promised by His prophets that the event should be. Book II. In this book Augustine undertakes an orderly examination of the Gospel according to Matthew, on to the narrative of the Supper, and institutes a comparison between it and the other Gospels by Mark, Luke, and John, with the view of demonstrating a complete harmony between the four Evangelists throughout all these sections. Book III. This book contains a demonstration of the harmony of the Evangelists from the accounts of the Supper on to the end of the Gospel, the narratives given by the several writers being collated, and the whole arranged in one orderly connection. Book IV. This book embraces a discussion of those passages which are peculiar to Mark, Luke, or John.
This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life Calvin produced commentaries on most of the books of the Bible. His commentaries cover the larger part of the Old Testament, and all of the new excepting Second and Third John and the Apocalypse. His commentaries and lectures stand in the front rank of Biblical interpretation. Our Author has exerted a powerful influence on all succeeding expositors. They have found their interest in listening to his instructions, and have been more deeply indebted to him than is generally known. Many valuable interpretations of passages of Scripture appeared for the first time in his writings, and have ever since been warmly approved. In other cases, the views which had been previously held are placed by him in so strong a light as to remove every doubt, and satisfy the most cautious inquiry. And yet the stores, from which so much has been drawn, are far from being exhausted, nor is their value greatly lowered by improvements which have been subsequently made. The department of History presents an analogous case. Documents which had been overlooked are carefully examined. Conflicting evidence is more accurately weighed. Important transactions assume a new aspect, or, at least, are altered in their subordinate details. Still, there are historians, in whose narrative the great lines of truth are so powerfully drawn, that the feebler, though more exact, delineations of other men cannot supply their place. In the chief moral requisite for such a work Calvin is excelled by none. He is an honest interpreter. No consideration would have induced him to wrest the words of Scripture from their plain meaning. Those who may question his conclusions cannot trace them to an unworthy motive. Timid theologians will be occasionally startled by his expositions. Though they may not absolutely impeach the soundness of his doctrine, they will tremble for the fate of some favorite theory or ingenious argument. With such minds he has no sympathy. He examines the Scriptures with the humility of one who inquires at the oracle of God, (2 Samuel 16:23,) and proclaims the reply with the faith of one who knows that the word of the Lord is tried, (Psalm 18:30.)
