I have been using both Volume I and Volume 2 and found them very
useful for checking on redaction-critical references and stats. For
instance, the use of EUTHUS/EUTHEWS in the synoptics (Stein refers to
this in his second question and answer) is seen at a glance with
examples of those instances found only in Mark, or the one instance
found only in Matthew, and so on, just hitting you in the eye. It would
have taken a lot of work to check the point Stein makes on
EUTHUS/EUTHEWS. Again, just looking at the neighbouring pages, the
synoptic uses of EUAGGELION and of EUAGGELIZOMAI are set out very
conveniently. It is very clear, for instance, that none of Mark's uses
of EUAGGELION parallels any of Luke's uses of EUAGGELIZW, and none of
Luke's uses of EUAGGELIZW parallels any of Mark's uses of EUAGGELION,
and also that EUAGGELIZW does not occur in Mark, and EUAGGELION is not
found in Luke. I look forward to the remaining volumes.
