What Is It?

The Parallel Gospel Reader is a map of the Gospels that lets you quickly scan through parallel accounts by section headings, and then select a section to see a detailed view of the biblical text.

What Does It Do?

Users can customize the resource layout by rearranging which Gospel account appears in the first place and lets them collapse certain accounts for easy comparison of two texts.

This resource will enable Bible students to quickly investigate the synoptic question by quickly browsing and investigating the parallel accounts in the Gospels.

How Can I Learn More?

Read more about it here, or open it in Logos 6.

How can I configure this to open with my preferred synopsis? I have prioritized the one I want in my Library (and no others), and it still opens with a different one. I'd prefer not to have to use a Layout as a workaround.

Because this tool is one of the Interactive Media and is therefore online, even if you save it with a preferred synopsis in a layout, when you open the layout again, it will open in its default state. That appears to be a disadvantage of these media.

Where is Throckmorton's Gospel Parallels?

MJ. Smith:

I get to my preferred synopsis that way after I open the tool, of course. :)

I hoped that would not be the case.

I am not completely sure what you were asking Floyd nor what your answer is telling Dave. But I have Throckmorton as a separate resource. When hovering over the various harmonies available in the interactive, it is clear that none of them are Throckmorton's. (There is one synopsis for which the authors are not indicated. The picture belows shows that when put side by side with Throckmorton, they are not the same. For instance the parallel to Mt 1.1-17 in Lk differs in length):

I think the point here is that it's simply too old - the file is dated from 2002 and is produced in fact as a monograph with some tabular content, probably back then by ThomasNelson themselves rather than by Logos.

You can see that there is no dynamic text used (and thus selectability of the bible version shown), as in the synopsis / gospel harmony works that have been updated to or produced after Logos 4. It doesn't even have a bible index.

FWIW, Throckmorton - who writes his synopsis follows Huck / Lietzmann - is not the only one missing:

Kind of a side question, but what are considered some of the better gospel harmonies

It's very much a matter of opinion, but the one that most commonly seems to be recommended is the Kurt Aland harmony (which I've certainly got in Patinum and it does work with the Interactive).

TEDS recommended Throckmorton 40+ years ago; it is still my goto harmony.  That is why I was sorry it was not part of the interactive.
