on <402030>Matthew 20:30. In <400828>Matthew 8:28, where Matthew has two demoniacs at Gadara and Luke has only one at Gerasa, Broadus supposes that the village of Gerasa belonged to the territory of the city of Gadara, a few miles to the Southeast of the lake, and he quotes the case of Lafayette: ?In the year 1824 Lafayette visited the United States and was welcomed with honors and pageants. Some historians will mention only Lafayette, but others will relate the same visit as made and the same honors as enjoyed by two persons, namely, Lafayette and his son. Will not both be right?? On Christ?s last Passover, see Robinson, Harmony, 212; E.H. Sears, Fourth Gospel, Appendix A; Edersheim. Life and Times of the Messiah, 2:507. Augustine: ?Locutiones varfe, sed non contrarfe: diverste, sed non adverse.?
Bartlett, in Princeton Rev., Jan. 1880:46, 47 gives the following modern illustrations: Winslow?s Journal (of Plymouth Plantation) speaks of a ship sent out ?by Master Thomas Weston.? But Bradford in his far briefer narrative of the matter, mentions it as sent ?by Mr. Weston and another.? John Adams, in his letters, tells the story of the daughter of Otis about her father?s destruction of his own manuscripts. At one time he makes her say: ?In one of his unhappy moments he committed them all to the flames?; yet, in the second letter, she is made to say that ?he was several days in doing it.? One newspaper says: President Hayes attended the Bennington centennial; another newspaper says: the President and Mrs. Hayes; a third: the President and his Cabinet; a fourth: the President, Mrs. Hayes and a majority of his Cabinet. Archibald Forbes, in his account of Napoleon III at Sedan, points out an agreement of narratives as to the salient points, combined with ?the hopeless and bewildering discrepancies as to details,? even as these are reported by eye-witnesses, including himself, Bismarck and General Sheridan who was on the ground, as well as others.
Thayer, Change of Attitude, 52, speaks of Luke?s ?plump anachronism in the matter of Theudas? ? <440536>Acts 5:36 ? ?For before those days rose up Theudas.?

The entire superscription, in Hebrew, Greek and Latin, may have contained every word given by the several evangelists combined, and may have read ?This is Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the
