The Two Gospel Hypothesis (2GH), formerly
known as the Griesbach Hypothesis, presents a comprehensive
solution to the Synoptic Problem. First given its name by Bernard
Orchard, the Two Gospel Hypothesis proposes that the Gospel
of Matthew was the earliest gospel, that the author of the Gospel
of Luke used the Gospel of Matthew as a source, and that the
author of the Gospel of Mark wrote using both the Gospels of
Matthew and Luke as sources.
