[Synoptic-L] Greek influence in 'Q'
- I've been looking for evidence of Greek influence in the sayings
material over and above the fact that the versions in Matt and Luke (and
arguably the original Q) were written in Greek. I have only found two.
(1) DIABOLOS (Matt 4:1 = Luke 4:2 and others in the Temptation). I
understand this word to be essentially Greek, in contrast with the
(2) hADHS (Matt 11:23 = Luke 10:15) is also apparently of Greek origin,
in contrast to GEENNA.
On other grounds I've concluded that the 'Q' pericopae containing
these two words were not in the original sayings source.
(IWTA is mentioned in Matt 5:18 but not in the Lukan parallel.)
Does anyone know of any other clear Greek influence within the
material usually designated as Q?
