Once again you misread what I wrote. The assumptions that I noted are
not MY assumptions. They belong to those (i.e, Jeremias and others)and
others who say that the matrix of the LP is the liturgy of the
synagogue, as you would surely know if you had any direct acquaintance
with LP scholarship.

But, if you have a point to make that is illuminating then make it in your paper, or if you wish to share it here then do it. I wish you the best success in all your endeavors.
So you won't back up YOUR claim that Jesus intended the LP to be
something that was to be addressed to him or that "The LP is
compendious pulling together" into "a single concise prayer formula" of
elements that can be found in "various preexisting" Jewish prayers by
naming these pre existing prayers and showing that what's in the LP can
be found in them?.
Why is that?
JeffreyI simply don't care.
