Translations Compared: Eastern or Western?
Quote:How exactly does the Diatesseron format its harmony? For example, in the Synoptic Gospels, does Tatian include each Gospel's account of an event that is recorded in at least two of the three, or does choose one and use it only? I have built part of my own Gospel harmony, but I haven't worked on it in a long time.

Hey far as I can see, Tatian combines the statements found in all versions, and makes them into one longer statement, not repeating anything...I'm not sure how accurate he was in all places, but that seems to be his overall approach. When they conflict, like the account of the roster crowing during Apostle Peter's denials, I think he went only with Mark's account...but I will have to check again.

But he had to choose which one to go with there, as Mark differs from the others, in how it's said to have happened.
