      Thanks for the interesting and useful post. A partial and inadequate answer to
      the final question would be that most would put some of the anti-Capernaum
      material down to Luke's source material, either Q or Matthew, especially
      10.13-16 (Woe to you Chorazin . . .).

      A small synoptic comment too on the other data:

      The compilation of parallels here might be re-worked a little with the
      observation that Matt. 4.13 // Luke 4.16 have the unique spelling Nazara,
      usually held to be a sign either of Luke's dependence on Matthew (e.g. Goulder)
      or a sign of Matthew and Luke's mutual dependence on Q (e.g. Schurmann,
      Tuckett, Robinson). The latter causes big problems for the Q theory and it is
      one of the reasons that Q theorists are only tentative about its inclusion.
