Excerpt from The Ministry of St. John the Baptist

If I might venture to utter a criticism on the many excellent works which already exist on the Life of our Lord, I should be inclined to add that it is just as to the arrangement and gradual unfolding of the providence of God as to the Public Life of our Lord that I have been accustomed to find them least satisfactory. It is pre-eminently as to that arrangement and unfolding that the true principles of what is called the Harmony of the Gospels need to be ascertained and applied, and yet it seems as if, even after the lapse of so many centuries, these true principles were but little attended to. The great St. Augustine, whose work on the Consensus Emm gelz'smrum is so full of various merit, has yet given all the authority of his name to a principle which can be shown to be altogether a misconception in this subject matter, and which, if a misconception, cannot be prac tically applied without producing confusion. For he has taken St. Matthew's Gospel as the basis to which to conform the statements of the other Evangelists, it being now generally admitted by students on the subject that the order of St. Matthew's Gospel is not chronological. In modern times there is a tendency to distinguish between the three first Evangelists, who go by the name of the Synoptists, and the fourth, who is supposed to fill up the gaps left in the history by his predecessors.
