I have not honestly studied the synoptic problem like I should’ve by now, but I want to correct this. I’ve mainly just agreed with those who say Mark was written first, then Luke and Matthew (with the possibility of Q). I realize that there are some who say Matthew was first, then Luke, then Mark (and I’m sure other views as well). I have read bits and pieces here and there when it comes up, but nothing that has focused solely on the issue. So, I ask you two things:
- What is your own opinion on the synoptic problem?
- What are some good resources for studying it?
