      ELQHTE). So the evidence is quite convincing that Mark has drawn upon the

      14:38. >>

      Only, of course, if you think Mark wrote before Matthew. The second part of
      Matt 26:41 contains what could be described as a Mattheanism in Mark. Mark
      never has a MEN ... DE construction on his own (without a clear parallel in
      Matthew), and he even leaves off the DE in a couple of these constructions
      which he (partially) borrows from Matthew (cf. 4:4 and 9:12). On the other
      hand, the construction is used repeatedly by Matthew, even in special Matthew
      material, and always with the complete, balanced construction MEN ... DE
      (which Mark picks up a few times).
