A Suggestion

A letter from a reader refers to the article, "THE GOSPELS—Why Are There Four? Why Do They Differ? Are They Fully Inspired?" as published in the September issue. On page 229 this article gives a very simple explanation of the variations of the records of the inscription on the cross. Our correspondent suggests that there may have been variations in the way it was written in from a Reader
Hebrew, Greek, and Latin, or even in the amount of space required for writing it in the different languages, thus causing abridgment in some cases. We certainly are not prepared to say emphatically which explanation of the variations is the correct one, but suffice it to say that there is no real difficulty in the fact that the Evangelists record slightly different parts of the inscription.
