Chapter Summary

Serious study of the synoptic problem can be undertaken only with the aid of a Greek synopsis. This chapter examines the texts and apparatuses with special reference to H.Greeven and B.Orchard but with comparisons with synopsis. It intendeds as a consumers guide to synopses and tries to indicate the relative merits of the texts printed. The chapter considers the relative merits of the apparatuses in Syn, H-G and Orchard. Thus a synopsis with a full apparatus is likely to be of enormous benefit to the scholar. Alands Synopsis is well-established and has the virtue of printing the text of John in full. The repetition of each pericope almost each time it is relevant to a parallel together with the repetition of its apparatus on most occasions may be uneconomical in terms of space and cost but it is of enormous benefit in studying the synoptic problem.

Keywords: Aland; apparatus; B.Orchard; Greek Synopsis; H.Greeven; text
