Griesbach introduced his theory in one of the earliest Gospel synopses, which he published in Latin: Synopsis evangeliorum Matthaei, Marci, et Lucae (Halle, 1776). He later published his conclusions in a book entitled Commentatio qua Marci evangelium totum e Matthaei et Lucae commentariis decerptum esse monstratur (Demonstration in which the entire Gospel of Mark is shown to be excerpted from the memoirs of Matthew and Luke) (Jena, 1789–90). This work was recently translated into English in Bernard B. Orchard and Thomas Longstaff, eds., J. J. Griesbach: Synoptic and Critical Studies 1776–1976 (Cambridge, UK/New York: Cambridge University Press, 1978), see pp. 74–135.
