4848RE: [Synoptic-L] How many verses in the Songerguts, Triple or Double Traditions, etc.
- May 10, 2013So far, such replies as I have seen (thank you) concentrate on word counts. These will, of course, vary depending on
which variants are or are not counted, and so there really is no single answer. However, for my purposes word counts are
(at the moment at least) taking me down into detail I don't need, and so for now I'm concentrating just on verses. If
this proves unsatisfactory, I'm going to drop down to clauses (I think). Anyway, for now these are the verse counts
(round numbers) I'm using for Luke, and if anyone cares to comment or suggest other numbers, I'm all ears (or eyes!):
Total Luke: 1150
Unique to Luke: 550
Luke/Matthew only: 200
Luke/Mark only: 70

In Response To: David Inglis
On: Counting Verses
David Inglis asks if there is a consensus on verse counts for single, double, or triple tradition verses. I should
suppose that the only real consensus in this area consists in the (Eusebian?) numbering of verses, and gets vaguer when
one goes higher up. (And even that numbering is sometimes problematic).
