Godet on the "separate stones scattered" in the Gospels

While expositing Luke 9:49-50 and parallels, Frederick Godet describes how the interpreter draws on all four Gospels to reconstruct the life and teachings of Jesus (Commentary on St. Luke’s Gospel, p. 280):

Thus, it very often happens, that by bringing together separate stones scattered about in our three narratives, we succeed in reconstructing large portions of the edifice, and then by joining it to the Gospel of John, the entire building.
