Hi Jac,

I did PAM analysis on INTF data of the Gospels (which doesn't include 1689) and got these lists of members for F13. For the purpose of this exercise, I partitioned the data for each Gospel into two different numbers of groups: (1) about 24; (2) about 93. These numbers are large enough to ensure that members of any groups found are closely related. The bigger number (about 93) is so large that remaining groups are highly coherent. A statistic called the mean silhouette width is used to choose preferred numbers of groups. The medoid (what PAM chooses as the most central member of the group) is marked by an asterisk.

Matt

24 groups: 13 69 124 346 543 788 826* 828 983
93 groups: 13 543 788 826* 828

Mark

24 groups: 13 69 124 346 543 788 826* 828 983
93 groups: 13 69 346 543 788 826* 828

Luke

22 groups: 13 69 124 346 543 788 826* 828 983
86 groups: 13 346 543 788 826* 828

John (346 not assessed)

24 groups: 13 69 543 788 826* 828 983
94 groups: 13 543 826* 828

In each case 826 is the medoid. This does not imply 826 is archetypical: PAM is not a phylogenetic analysis technique. All it means is that 826 is the member for which the sum of distances to other members is a minimum.

In Matt, Mark, Luke, the 24-ish-way partitions agree on F13 being 13, 69, 124, 346, 543, 788, 826, 828, 983. Dividing into a large number of groups (93-ish) causes some to drop out (Matt: 69, 124, 346, 983; Mark: 124, 983; Luke: 69, 124, 983). The ones that remain are the respective group cores.

346 is missing from the analysis results for John as it is fragmentary there. A 24-way partition of INTF data for John does not include 124 in F13 although a less stringent six-way partition does. In a 94-way partition of the data for John's Gospel, 69, 788, and 983 drop out of F13 as well.
