Gospel Q is complete

After three years of work I have finally completed the task of combining all four Gospel verses into the equivalent of the fictitious Q-Source. 

The scholars have long believed that there was a Gospel-Q which was the source of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke and that the Gospel of John came later. 

Such a version has never been found because ironically it is the Gospel of John, written by Jesus and Simon Magus with the help of John Mark and Philip after the Crucifixion, which was first!

Next it was Peter's Gospel scribed by Mark. (Papias of Hierapolis (c.60-135) quoted in Church History by Eusebius, III.39.15 - "Mark, having become the interpreter of Peter, wrote down accurately, though not indeed in order, whatsoever he remembered of the things said or done by Christ.")

The Gospel of Luke was composed by Jesus with Luke's help to give a more humanistic approach than Peter's and because the impending Schism of the Churches between East and West was making it doubtful the the Gospel of John would be accepted without modification as Simon was then being called a heretic. (See the Clementines).

The Gospel of Matthew was written under the direction of the Church leaders to define the accepted doctrine of the Church from the elaborate birth story to the Resurrection. Note that both Luke and Matthew are dedicated to the more liberal Sadducee priests: Theophilus and Matthew who ruled the Church, being the sons of the ex-high priest at Jesus' trial (Annas).

Contrary to scholarly opinion, the Four Gospels were all canonized in 49-50 AD according to the Book of Revelation as symbolized by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8.) in the presence of the Lamb (Jesus).

In this work, all four Gospel verses relating to each event or theme are shown together in the same chronological order as in their gospel position, with the exception of parables. (Since parables show past or future history, they are placed according to their specific chronology.) By having the four Gospel verses together, it is possible to get a more detailed description of the event or theme rather than relying on an index and four markers thus five fingers marking these places! (Is it any wonder that most readers miss many details: for example the Gospel of John is the only gospel that shows that Jesus' legs were not broken when he was taken down from the cross, thus, when he was revived, he was able to be standing behind Mary Magdalene when she mistook him for James "the Gardener")

You may read the the combined Gospels from beginning to end or use the Gospel Harmony Index.

More detail on the Gospels:

Gospel of John: The order of the writing of the Gospels was the Gospel of John first because Jesus had co-authored the Gospel of John with Simon Magus, his superior at the time of writing, and it was scribed by John Mark, the beloved disciple, and his subordinate, Philip. (Note: Both Jesus and Simon Magus had survived their crucifixions.) The reason that it is now considered last is because of his content favoring Simon Magus who was pronounced a heretic at the time of its publication. Its almost poetic style convinced later scholars that it was written later than the other three Gospels.

Jesus and Simon were masters at presenting double meanings. This way they would not be accused of lying. Thus dead, just meant dead in term of Essene doctrine that said that being out of the Church was like death. The Essene classifications in the order of ranking could be used such as lame and blind and religious titles could be used such as 'son' and 'father' to imply God and the Son of God. Also, they used multiple names for the same person to create the illusion of a huge organization and to confuse the Roman authorities.

The Gospel of John uses a narrative structure with inter-spaced healings with all healings not healings at all, but being merely changes of doctrine, leading up to that of Lazarus, four days dead followed by the Crucifixion that was shown as a Resurrection rather than a carefully planned and lucky deception. Jesus' own betrothal is his first miracle of "water to wine", which plays with the concept of the Last Supper ceremony becoming a symbol for allowing Gentiles to advance from water baptisms to the wine at the Holy Table. (The other three Gospels and Acts kept the same "white lies", but ignored Lazarus because of the Schism of the Church, which had excluded Simon Magus-Lazarus. In Acts, Luke continued the "white lies" presenting many factious deaths such as James the son of Zebedee killed by the sword, Jonathan-Stephen the first martyr stoned to death, Simon Magus-Ananias and Helena-Sapphira, killed by Peter.)

The sequence of the writing of the Four Gospels, having John first, certainly contradicts the scholarly consensus, but opens up a better means of determining the correct emphasis on events in the same way that the Gospel of Mark has been given priority by many. Because of the Schism of the Churches, which occurred just before the release of the Gospels, there was an effort to reduce the importance of Simon Magus, who was their leader during the mission of Jesus, by removing Simon's name or using his nicknames in place of his name. However, after the Gospels of Luke, Mark, and Matthew were released, it was decided that the Gospel of John was still giving too much importance to Simon Magus, especially in its account of Lazarus. This is described in Revelation 10:7-11: "I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth. When I had eaten it, my belly was made bitter." John's gospel was then heavily edited, more so than the Synoptic Gospels, and this resulted in strange anomalies.

Gospel of Mark: Peter with the help of the different scribe Mark, in Rome, set out to write a no-nonsense commentary, but keeping the concept of miracles for changes of doctrine because to him they were miracles that brought him from a 'fisher' of converts in the Noah ceremony to Pope of the Christian Church. Peter leaves out the Resurrection and ends with Mark 16:08 "And, having come forth quickly, they fled from the sepulcher, seized with trembling and amazement, and saying nothing to anyone, for they feared." (Proof of this ending is the absence of 9–20 in Codex Sinaiticus and Vaticanus lookup on my site).

Peter's book also did not escape the editors as we can see from the remnants of the original version in the "Gospel of Peter" and the "Secret Gospel of Mark" (see the True Gospel of Peter).

Gospel of Luke: With the schism of the churches in 44 AD, Simon Magus was then on the opposing side; so Jesus (still alive) with the help of Luke wrote a version more acceptable to the New Christian Church (thus the dedication to Theophilus Annas). Also it used parables that had trivial or seemingly contradictory moral stories to illustrate past and present history. The proof of authorship was the true story of Jesus' illegitimacy, though hidden within his 6 AD symbolic Bar Mitzvah, which scholars call a mistake of Luke!

Gospel of MatthewMatthew, the brother of Theophilus, also a Sadducee and a High Priest, wanted to built an epic story so he added the Bethlehem birth and the Sermon on the Mount and some more parables. Even hidden in the Christmas story is the fact that it was only the Magi who recognized him as the true descendant of David (Matt 2:1-12) because Joazar Boethus, Pharisee High Priest, had rejected him as illegitimate. (Revelation 12:1-6). The Magi were the forefathers of Simon Magus who was the Pope of the early Qumran quasi-Essene Church and later maligned as the Beast 666 of Revelation (Revelation 13:17-18) after the Schism.
