      The saying "Your faith has saved you", using the second person singular,
      occurs four times in Luke but only once in Matthew where Matthew
      parallels Luke in sequential narrative parallel. The Greek is --
      hH PISTIJ SOU SESWKEN SE, and this is found in Lk 7.50, 8.48, 17.19,
      18.42, and also in Mt 9.22 (parallel to Lk 8.48).

      Is this an indication that Matthew copied from either Luke or a source
      common to Mt and Lk?

      That is to say, is it an indication that Luke did not copy from Matthew?

      Best wishes,

        It certainly is an indication that Luke did not "just" copy from Matthew, but
        it is certainly not an indication that Luke did not know and use Matthew.
        What was a singular formulation in Matthew has become a dogmatic principle in
        Luke, undoubtedly under the impetus of perceived similar thinking in Paul.
