Description : About the "Appendix A" Book Template In the fall of 2011, an idea/concept began formulating for a book series covering the events of the most significant eight weeks of Christianity's beginnings, events comprising core components of Christian theology - Jesus Christ's final Passover Week through the following Pentecost observance (when first 3,000 Christians were baptized, after hearing apostles' speaking in the listeners' native languages.) Using a "Harmony of the Gospels" matrix format, the intent is to compile a single chronological story derived from the endings of the four gospels and first two chapters of Acts. (See Table of Contents showing the 655 selected Bible verses.) The four matrix columns contain Bible verses from (1) Matthew, (2) Mark, (3) Luke, and (4) John, then Acts. Where the verses from multiple gospels are describing same (sub)event, the narratives are placed in horizontal parallel alignment on the page ( "Gospels' Comparative Text Alignment" [G'CTA] ). To produce a single chronological story, discrepancies in event sequences in the four gospels had to be resolved. After careful analysis, publishing editor had to make a subjective decision as to the sequence the events would be ordered in the text. (Those column verses presented out of sequence are boxed in an orange double border.) A small number of the selected 655 Bible gospel verses are not present in the earliest surviving gospel manuscripts. The text of those passages are italicized and in green font. A suggestion to illustrate the books (to be created from this derivative work compilation book template) was implemented after finding 365 public domain watercolor images created by James Tissot in the late 1800's. We selected 63 images (from volumes III & IV of The Life of Our Saviour Jesus Christ published in the USA in 1899) to be placed adjacent to corresponding Bible verses in the text. (Bible verses illustrated by adjacent images are double-underlined in the matrix table.) The resulting chronological G'CTA matrix table was then subdivided into 78 "events" (with author/editor-generated event descriptions) under the six section headings identified in the Table of Contents.
