In the DIATESSARON, Tatian combines the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John into a single, chronological story of Jesus of Nazareth. It removes the repetition of some Gospel events found in the three Synoptics, as these duplicate versions of some events and sequences were obviously copied from one another, such as Matthew and Luke copying from Mark, our earliest Gospel. John’s Gospel is of a more theological and spiritual version of events and virtually stands alone. My only disappointment in the Diatessaron is that the narrative should have referenced the book, chapter and verse from the original Gospels, as we could then review how the language from the original translation, c. 150 to 160 AD, has evolved into the version of the Holy Bible that we read today.
