      Not off the top of my head, Mark. Mind you, there’s not a huge amount written on Thomas and sources – even the Q stuff isn’t exactly extensive. Have you looked at Reinhardt Nordsiek’s commentary, or Uwe-Karsten Plisch’s, though? There is a vague glimmer in the back of my mind that says that I might have read something in one of these, but I have been up waaaaay too long today to be able to skim read effectively even in English and Nordsiek’s German is definitely beyond me tonight.

      Subject: [GTh] Gospel of Thomas and the Farrer Theory



      As some of you may know, I am currently working on a book on the
      relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and the Synoptics. It
      occurs to me that I am not aware of a single piece of scholarship on
      the Gospel of Thomas that engages with the Farrer Theory. The only
      piece I am aware of that even mentions it is Stephen Patterson, “The
      Gospel of (Judas) Thomas and the Synoptic Problem” in P. Foster, A.
      Gregory, J. S. Kloppenborg and J. Verheyden (eds.), New Studies in the
      Synoptic Problem (BETL, 239; Leuven: Peeters, 2011), 783-808.
      Patterson gives the theory a footnote (p. 790, n. 34), which I think
      may be a sign of future hope. Is anyone aware of anything else?


      Cross-posting to the Gospel of Thomas list and Synoptic-L.
