This volume contains the acts of the international conference on the Synoptic Problem that was organised at Lincoln College, Oxford, in April 2008. The conference focused on offering a comprehensive assessment of the state of research into the Synoptic Problem over the last hundred years, indicating potential ways in which the discussion might be advanced. In more than thirty essays contributors have dealt with various aspects of the question, including the current state of synoptic studies in general, a comparative assessment of the major synoptic hypotheses, the synoptic gospels and ancient scribal practices, the role and function of hypothetical sources, the synoptic gospels and other gospels, and the reception history of the research. This volume marks the centenary of the publication of the Studies in the Synoptic Problem by Members of the University of Oxford, the results of William Sanday's Seminar that had ran for some fifteen years. But primarily it honours a distinguished contributor to current scholarship on the Synoptic Problem, Christopher M. Tuckett, Professor of New Testament studies at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Pembroke College.
