      Note also, though, that in the transfiguration pericope as a whole there
      are several interesting Minor Agreements. Goulder lists six (_Luke_,
      pp. 442-445), none of which on their own are particularly impressive,
      but cumulatively -- as so often -- tilt the balance in favour of the
      theory that Luke is redacting Mark in the light of remeniscence of
      Matthew's version of Mark.

      There is a discussion of the MA above in the first Neirycnk
      _Evangelica_ volume (1982).
