Gospel of Matthew
An alternative trajectory for Mark, Matthew and Luke?
Was the Gospel of Mark, far from being the first basic Jesus narrative (Mack), albeit still the first of our canonical gospels, actually responsible for removing the resurrection appearance scene from an earlier version of the story? Were Matthew and Luke later attempts to harmonize the two narratives?
The first question arises from the following:
GOSPEL OF PETER COMPARED WITH CANONICAL GOSPELS
Bold type = points that GP shares with at least one other of the gospels. (Not always in the same narrative sequence or attributed to same characters)
Underlined type = points unique to GP
Bold red = Authorial intrusions to draw attention to prophetic fulfilment
