And how do they explain that Matthew prefered to keep the
non capernaum-like verses of the story ? How do they explain
that Matthew changed absolutely all Lukan-like wording he found
in Mark ?
If they do not explain this two major issues, then I agree
with Leonard when y says that you are too easily convinced.
