5972Re: [John_Lit] Verbatim agreements between John and the Synoptics
- Aug 12, 2011Hi there, Mark, an important topic, I think.
Here are some of the places I've addressed the similarities; interestingly,
dependence theories fall short in terms of evidence. And yet, particular
contacts or agreements between John and each of the Synoptic traditions do
present themselves, so sorting out the likely character of the connections
is important to establish.
See 31 general agreements between John and the Synoptics, 44 memorable
sayings common to John and Mark, and 13 possible contacts between the
Johannine and Q traditions in The Fourth Gospel and the Quest for Jesus
(Part IV), and my overall theory of interfluentiality in Part III.
The two sections of John that are similar to the Synoptics are John 6 and
John 18-19. My analyses of these (confirming the overall theory) are found
in The Christology of the Fourth Gospel (chs. 5-8) and my chapter on John
18-19 in the Louvain collection on the Death of Jesus (Peeters 2007).
