    In New Testament studies, the synoptic problem is concerned with the relationships among the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. In the present paper a careful specification in probabilistic terms is set up of what is known as the triple-link model, and, as a special case, the double-link model. Counts of the numbers of verbal agreements among the gospels are examined to investigate which of the possible triple-link models appears to give the best fit to the data.
