Re: [Synoptic-L] indication that Luke did not copy from Matthew?

<< 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?>>
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.
