Definition: Synoptic Problem The first three gospels in the NT canon—Matthew, Mark and Luke—are known as the "Synoptic" Gospels, so called because they can be viewed side by side ("syn-optically") and compared easily by means of a synopsis. The reason for this is that all three gospels have a great deal of material in common and very often they present their material in the same order. Further, the different type of material and arrangement, in the Fourth Gospel shows that this agreement between the Synoptic Gospels cannot be explained as due to chance or to the fact that the synoptic narratives simply reflect the actual course of the historical ministry of Jesus. The three Synoptic Gospels are thus in some relationship with each other, and the problem of determining the nature of that relationship is known as the synoptic problem.
