I am looking for a combination of the four Gospels into one unified narrative. I have plenty harmonies of the Gospels. But none of them combine the Gospels together into one seamless story. It would be for devotional purposes. Any recommendations?

You mean you're looking for Tatian's Diatessaron which at one time was in the Syriac Bible instead of the four gospels? See Diatessaron - Wikipedia. In Logos I see only fragments of St. Ephrem's commentary on it.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

This is what I was looking for. Now I need to find an edition with modern English.

I have it in Logos.  Is that one of the resources that disappeared when Gorgias Press pulled out.

I use it quite a bit, primarily looking at small renderings.

Kiyah's one, more recent, appears to work off of Diatessaron.  Of course, not the 1611 Diatesseron,

It's called the Diatessaron and it's included in Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume IXlogosres:anf10;ref=Page.p_43  (I don't know why the L4 link calls it anf10; it's volume 9.)

Here's another one:

Thank you, Rosie! For anyone having the Gorgias translation, if you hover the verse number, it pulls the AnteNicene-9 version for easy comparison. Small interpreted differences. Never noticed! Of course, a CitedBy allows linking to the Biblical gospels.

I discovered this one last night. It’s a good one.

Thank you all for the recommendations.
