Doug - try reading the four accounts in parallel - they differ so much that you find yourself wondering if they're even talking about the same events, so cross-referencing is impossible. John, for example, son of Zebedee the fisherman, totally discounts the entire "Come with me and I will make you fishers of men" story, and relates how he and his brother James met Yeshua (Jesus) near the Jordan river while they were following John the Baptist.
All four Gospels were written anonymously, and only much later, did church authorities decide they must have been written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, which represent strange choices, as Matthew (the Greek name for Levi, the tax collector) and John - had the Gospels actually been written by them - would have been there at the time, but Mark and Luke would not have been.
"Mark" was the first to have written a gospel, then "Matthew" copied most of his directly from "Mark," in some instances, verbatim. "Luke" wrote his using "Mark's" and the works of an unknown author who has come to be known as "Q," to create his own. The Gospel of James appears to stand alone.
Reconciling anything by cross-referencing the four gospels would be an exercise in futility.
That was my point, kinda floggin a dead horse.
Trust me Doug, that's not as much fun as it's cracked up to be --
Darn I was hoping it was like the scene from Officespace with the printer.
