There is evidence that the Johannine Redactor and also the later
interpolators have been influenced by the gospel of Matthew.
On the following page on my Web site:
you will find a table indicating nine Johannine (Redactor?!) texts which
appear to have been influenced by texts in Matthew.
Also late interpolations (as I see them):
John 20:23 was surely inspired by Matt 16:19 & 18:18.
John 21, like Matt 16:18, but unlike the material in the earlier
editions of John, presents Peter as the most important disciple.
Also very late interpolations (as I see them):
John 9:38-39a [most later MSS] ("and worshipped him") is based on Matt
John 12:8 [most MSS] has its closest synoptic parallel in Matthew.
