      Two of the most notable have been Joachim Jeremias, Abba. Studien zur
      Neutestamentlichen Theologie und Zietgeschichte, 1966, Vandenhoeck &
      Ruprecht, Gottingen; and Joseph A. Fitzmyer, The Gospel according to Luke,
      1981, 1985 Doubleday, Garden City, NY. The scholarly opinion is that the
      original version of the Lord’s Prayer was a short version, like Luke’s, but
      contained wording closer to that embedded in the expanded version of
      Matthew. The works of these scholars are summarized in John P. Meier’s "A
      Marginal Jew, rethinking the historical Jesus" Vol. 2, 1994, Doubleday, NY.
