is an excellent one, very plausible. With this argument, however, we need
only that Luke be dependent upon both Mark and Matthew (no Q), without
needing to specify whether Mark has priority over Matthew or not.>>
I would concur with Jim's point here, and would only add that the overall
synoptic phenomenon here only requires that ALk wrote after, and with a
knowledge of, Matt. Mark's text could well follow both, depending for its
position and formulation more heavily on Matt than on Lk.
