Although the sequencing of passages, noting of contradictions, and the majority of footnotes are the result of my own research, I relied on a number of sources for those notes which require special knowledge.  My sources and a short list of books which the reader may find useful in studying the Gospels is listed in the bibliography.

I would like to thank my spouse for numerous suggestions, tireless proofreading, and assistance with my research (particularly where I had to refer to the original Greek texts).  Without this assistance I would not have been able to complete this project.
