Volume 2 of Godet’s Introduction to the New Testament covers the Synoptic Gospels. In this volume, he defends the historicity and authenticity of the Gospels and their writers—a position not widely held at the time of publication—and investigates the canonicity of the Gospels. Each chapter is devoted to one of the Synoptic Gospels, and the volume concludes with chapters on the relationship between the Synoptics and the textual and contextual similarities and differences.
Godet, in all his commentaries, shows a scholarly breadth of familiarity with the commentators who preceded him. Many of their interpretations are stated and refuted in order to present that which the author feels is the correct interpretation of the passage. One can in reading this work avail himself of a clear summary of the views of many various writers. The author was respected as a theologian, hence his work has depth, and was revered as a Greek scholar and exegete, and thus his work has accuracy.
[Frédéric Louis Godet] has many qualifications for his work. One of the most needful exists in an eminent degree—a hearty sympathy with the book he is expounding. He does not approach it from the outside, but the inside, having a heartfelt experience of the power of the blessedness of its truths.
—Talbot W. Chambers
