Nativity story differences
I'm pretty aware of the 2 nativity stories from Luke and Mathew but does anyone know if there is a chart or graph that clearly goes through the differences? Thanks

RE: Nativity story differences
You mean the differences between only the nativity stories? The nativity stories are just about 20 verses long each, Matt 2:1-23 and Luke 2:1-21, there's hardly enough data to draw anything of them, let alone fancy diagrams, it's barely a 15 minutes' reading. If you're intrested in the entire gospels, then there's something to be found, like these kind of analyses from here (where the method is described in further detail):

[Image: synopticscoloredMattMarkLuke.png]
^Synoptic Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke

^Gospel of John

Color key:

Red – Matthew’s gospel only.
Green – Mark’s gospel only.
Blue – Luke’s gospel only.

Other colors are combinations of the former:

Red+Green = Yellow – Matthew and Mark only.
Red+Blue = Magenta – Matthew and Luke only (“Double tradition” aka Q source).
Green+Blue = Cyan – Mark and Luke only.

Black = "Triple tradition" - Mark, Matthew and Luke.
Brown = John only. The shared material in John follows the synoptic coloring.

To find the most relevant verse comparisons (by verse numbers in table format, with further discussion), check chapter 2 here.

Τί ἐστιν ἀλήθεια?

Thank you. I know they are short but was hoping to see a chart of it I appreciate the link. I want to start focusing my reading to the numerous contradictions and think I'll start from nativity.

Yes, we all know this. And it means precisely...what in your ever so humble opinion, or do you have one? No

RE: Nativity story differences
From the divergent ancestral lineage, to the conflicting dates (Matthew, 4 BCE & Herod; Luke, 6 AD & Quirinius) to the completely made up narrative to get Mary to Bethlehem, to what happened after (Matthew, fled to Egypt to avoid the mythical massacre of the innocents; Luke, return to Nazareth), the differences are legion.

All laid out in my book; linked in my signature. Smile

Right, so I take it that you didn't actually read and/or understand the graphic? Or did you not like the fact that they didn't list 'Jesus was fucking Tiberius' as a plausible option? Dodgy

Oh, and cite your sources fucknut. Oh wait, Ellis and Atwill never cite sources! Silly me...
