Mt9.24: he said, ³Go away ...²
Lk8.53: but he said, ³Do not weep ...²

Since 1998 I have been suggesting from time to time that these texts bear
the same relation to one another as:
To be or not to be, that is the question
To be or not to be, aye, that¹s the point
The above is of course from the ³Bad Quarto² of Hamlet, a specimen of what
Shakespearean scholars call ³auditory piracy²: the target text is
memorized and subsequently reproduced as well as can be expected from a text
presented in an oral venue. There are a variety of examples of the genre
extant, mostly sermons and plays. The originals and the ³pirated² versions
show the endemic minor disagreements characterizing the Synoptic texts.
Morton Smith¹s Clement letter describes an orally presented Markan
manuscript in Alexandria:
³Thus, in sum, [Mark] prepared matters, neither grudgingly nor incautiously,
in my opinion, and, dying, he left his composition to the church in
Alexandria, where it even yet is most carefully guarded, being read only to
those who are being initiated into the great mysteries.²
Think about it.
