- Theo K. Heckel: Vom Evangelium des Markus zum viergestaltigen Evangelium
From the Gospel according to Mark to the Four Gospels. By Theo K. Heckel.
(Published in German).
Theo K. Heckel examines the collection of the four gospels, ranging from the
final form of the oldest gospel up to the way they are dealt with in
Irenaeus (around 180). Originally, each of the four gospels was to have been
read on its own. In spite of this, a combination in which all of them were
to be taken in by the reader parallel to one another gained general
acceptance. The Gospel according to John underwent a similar development.
John 1-20, which actually can stand alone as a text, opened out in its
supplementary chapter John 21 to include other written records which had
been handed down. The four gospels can be explained by this about-turn,
since their theological program is expressed in the headings of the gospels.
The sources which originated before Irenaeus confirm that the collection of
the four gospels was already in existence around 110-120 AD.
