May I ask whether you are really persuaded that Luke is
"fatigued" in relation to Matthew in the Mission Charge in Mt 10.5-15 //
Lk 9.1-6, and also in the Parable of the Talents/Pounds in Mt 25.14-30
// Lk 19.11-27 ? These are two of the instances set out as "fatigue" in
Mark Goodacre's "NTS" article (pages 54-55).
In other words, are you not persuaded of the "fatigue" phenomenon in any
instance at all?
Or is it rather that you accept the examples put forward by Mark, but
not the instance of the Question of John the Baptist which I have put
forward (Mt 11.2-6 // Lk 7.18-23)?
My instance is in the reverse direction to those observed by Mark
Goodacre, of course. So accepting both his and my examples would
necessitate positing a hypothetical documentary source such as Q.
