Besides OT echoes, however, some account will need to be given of how these or other
elements have generated, not just details of the Matthean narrative, but its
internally confused structure. All that lies in the possible future. At
present, and as expounded by MG, to whom Ken has here largely deferred, I
can only judge that the proposition fails.<<
As it appears that at present neither of us is willing to spend the time necessary to compose his own original treatment addressing the thematic and verbal parallels between the Tenants and Matthew's Great Supper and expound on their role in the composition of the Matthean narrative, and Goulder's treatment of those issues is disqualified on the basis of his lectionary theory, I shall bow out of the discussion here.
