Re: Demonstrating Q (Quelle) was a document and "Luke" did not know gMatthew.

to Ken Olson, I thought you were going to cover the Mark-Q overlap passages (known on the Farrer theory as the triple tradition passages for which Luke followed Matthew rather than Mark as a source). No matter. I did not cover that in my latest post. I put the Mark-Q overlaps in the category: gMark-...

Re: Demonstrating Q (Quelle) was a document and "Luke" did not know gMatthew.

to Ken Olson, It has the Minor Agreement “who is it that struck you?” that is found in the scene of Jesus’s trial before the Sanhedrin. So it must have the trial scene and therefore a Passion Narrative. The location and time of the scene was provided by gMark 14:65. It also has all the other Minor A...

I know you are waiting for my final section ;) So here it is, and waiting for your critique: E) Minor agreements between gLuke and gMatthew against gMark According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-source_hypothesis : "The "minor agreements"—the word "minor" here is not intended to be belittling—...

Re: Gospel of the Hebrews / Marcion parallels

to Ben, Yes, I can see that Roth attests "lake" in 8.23. In his book, he puts the relevant phrase, including "lake," in verse 23 in parentheses (page 417), which indicates that the "precise wording is not attested" (page 411), whereas he does not put "sea" in verse 24 in parentheses. Nothing in Tert...

Re: Gospel of the Hebrews / Marcion parallels

to Ben,
"sea" is also attested for Marcion, in agreement with Matthew and Mark but not with Luke.
gMarcion has 'sea' instead of 'water' in 8:24 & 25, but has 'lake' in 8:23 as in gLuke.
Note: gMark & gMatthew have no 'lake' anywhere.

Cordially, Bernard

Re: The Synoptic Problem: Strong cases for the greater primitivity of Matthew or Luke

to Ken Olson, Bernard Muller gave several examples that he argued showed the greater primitivity of the Lukan form I did not argue for that. But I did argue for the existence of Q, which is different. (Bolding mine) ... I am assuming that most (though not all) Christian communities in the Roman empi...

Re: The Synoptic Problem: Strong cases for the greater primitivity of Matthew or Luke

to Ken Olson, About the parable of the talents/pounds: Maybe "Luke" didn't keep track on how many pounds one would just have (which can be very easily overlooked, even by "Luke") because of fatigue. But if "Luke" was fatigued, then why departing so much from gMatthew? If fatigued, I would expect he/...

Demonstrating Q (Quelle) was a document and "Luke" did not know gMatthew.

Demonstrating Q (Quelle) was a document and "Luke" did not know gMatthew. A) The "missing block" It has been noticed gLuke does not incorporate any material from gMark 6:47 to 8:27a (except for one saying: see next note), a total of 74.5 verses. It is called the great omission (the "missing block")...
