      Not sure if this qualifies but I was just working on it.
      In Luke's account of the Last Supper he breaks up Mark's account of the passing of the cup into two separate passings of the cup. In the first he truncates Mark's Jesus quote. In the second passing of the cup he adds in what appears to be Paul's description of what Jesus said after passing the cup, which is a reordered phrasing of what Luke left out of the first quote.

      Subject: [XTalk] Luke's use of his sources

      Can anyone here give me examples of Luke's shortening the length of the sayings of Jesus that he found in Mark and Q  (or, hello Mark G, Matthew)?

      With thanks in advance,
