Certainly Throckmorton's "Gospel Parallels" agrees with you here.
However I'm not so sure. Matthew has a near-duplication in Mt 12:31a and
12:32a, and I think it more likely that Mk 3:29a parallels the former
because they both include 'blaspheme', 'spirit' and 'no forgiveness'.
Nevertheless I don't understand Burkett's case. Why shouldn't Luke
occasionally pick out and copy texts from Matthew that were not derived from
Thanks for the google book reference. I note that Burkett posits *two*
unattested documents, namely Q and proto-Mark. Also he tries to explain the
MAs by assuming they were present in proto-Mark. But even if he could
justify the existence of proto-Mark, it is highly unlikely that Mark would
have gone to the trouble of changing the MAs, if only because that would in
many cases involve replacing good Greek by somewhat cruder Greek.
