also syn·op·ti·cal (-t-kl) definition.

b. often Synoptic Relating to or being the first three gospels of the New Testament, which share content, style, and order of events and which differ largely from John.

Of the 10 most popular sites for “synoptic” , 9 refer to the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke) and 1 refers to weather in Australia. I’m glad to see that in the church, there are still some cool words that are postmodern, holistic and haven’t been swiped from the business world.
