Boismard dedicates an ex-cursus to this point of view in "L'evangile

Even if you disagree his use of Pepys harmony, he sumarizes
old arguments and provides new one, that may join your point

sterile woman (for instance : magnificat), and in a previous

Reading your essays ("priority of Mark" and "Existence of Q"),
I do not find the quality of your work on Testimonium Flavianum.

I compare these new works with your dissertation on Testimonium
Flavianum, that remain for me one of the best study on that topic :
You did not conclude on Testimonium Flavianum before giving a large
overview of all points of view and arguments on the question.
In your new essays, I do not find references and answer to classical

find sometime in Mark ?
