The complete Gospels : annotated Scholars Version by Bible. N.T .Gospels( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents for the first time all twenty of the known gospels from the early Christian era, offering a fuller picture of early Christian origins than found in any other source. Each offers fresh glimpses into the world of Jesus and his followers, including: The Gospel of Thomas reveals Jesus as a wisdom teacher; Gospels of Mary suggest that women held a prominent role in the early church; Sayings Gospels Q, the controversial reconstruction of the first gospel used by Jesus' original followers, contains only Jesus' sayings and none of the dramatic stories about his life later told in the New Testament gospels; the Signs Gospel is almost entirely a catalog of miracles, intended to demonstrate that he was the Jewish Messiah; the Secret Book of James relates that immediately prior to his ascension, Jesus imparted a private revelation to James and Peter; the Gospel of Peter contains what may have been the original passion narrative.--From publisher description
Helping Jesus fulfill prophecy by Robert J Miller( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's obvious that Jesus fulfilled prophecies about the promised Messiah--or so the gospels make it seem. But the real story is more complex, and more compelling. In hindsight we can see that Jesus had help fulfilling prophecy. The gospel writers skillfully manipulated prophecies--carefully lifting them out of context, creatively reinterpreting them, even rewriting them--to match what Jesus would do in fulfilling them. The evangelists also used the prophecies themselves to shape the very stories that show their fulfillment. This book describes in detail how Christian authors ""helped"" Jesus ful
The apocalyptic Jesus : a debate( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did the historical Jesus preach that God was about to bring an end to human history and impose the divine kingdom on the earth and all its peoples? Four eminent New Testament scholars - Dale Allison, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and Stephen Patterson - come together under the direction of Robert J. Miller to debate this, the single most important question about the historical Jesus." "Borg, Crossan, and Patterson argue that Jesus taught that God's kingdom was already here, not that it was coming in the near future. Dale Allison defends the widely-held view that Jesus was an apocalyptic prophet."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book Description: In this compelling study of the birth and infancy of Jesus, Robert Miller separates fact from fiction in the gospel narratives and relates them to stories about the miraculous births of Israelite heroes and of Greek and Roman sons of God. Born Divine analyzes the Christian claim that the birth and childhood of Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies. The historical and theological dimensions of the virgin birth tradition are discussed with honesty and insight. This wide-ranging book also presents additional infancy gospels from the second century through the Middle Ages
The complete Gospel parallels by Robert J Miller( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An essential resource for the analytical study of the gospels, The Complete Gospel Parallels goes beyond the standard parallels. This book gives those who study the gospels in English a one-volume compendium of synopses not only for the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, but also for the Gospels of Thomas and Peter, as well as for a few gospel fragments (the Egerton Gospel, Gospel Oxyrhynchus 1224, as well as the Jewish-Christian Gospels of the Hebrews and the Nazoreans). The Complete Gospel Parallels also includes a synopsis for the reconstructed Q Gospel, which enables the reader both to discern how the text of Q can be derived and how Q was adopted and adapted by Matthew and Luke. The Complete Gospel Parallels features the fresh and vibrant Scholars Version translation, which has been thoroughly revised and fine-tuned to facilitate the precise comparison of parallel passages, using consistent English for the same Greek and different English where the originals vary. The Complete Gospel Parallels lucid translation, its easy-to-use format, and its broad range of gospel materials will enhance and deepen the serious reader s appreciation of early Christian tradition and literature."--Publisher's description
