>>It could be argued that it is Luke who (in 11:31-32)
adopts Mt's EN TH KRISEI (from Mt 12:41-42). But Lk had already preferred the
expression (in Lk 10:14) when he supposedly already changed Mt's preferred
expression ("at Judgment Day" Mt 11:22) to "at the judgment." Farrer
theorists might argue that Lk simply prefers his own expression to Mt's and
so is consistent in changing it. But the theory cannot account for Mt's
behaviour. Why is Mt inconsistent when he seems to prefer the expression he
used four times (esp. Mt 12:36). Thus my problem with the Farrer theory is
that it cannot explain Mt's behaviour here since Lk's presence should have no
You appear to grant that Luke's consistency
in using Mathhew here can be explained on the Farrer theory, but you contend
that Matthew's inconsistency cannot. Thus we need to hypothesize a
source for Matthew. Have you considered the possibility that
Matthew's ANASTHSONTAI EN TH KRISEI in 12.41 may have LXX Psalms 1.5,
ANASTHSONTAI... EN KRISEI as its "source", and that Mt. 12.42 uses
EN TH KRISEI because it was constructed in parallel with 12.41?
