      Is it not possible to say that "in order", for Luke, means
      in fact "in an order", ie Luke means that several documents
      for the different tradition about Jesus is "disorder", ie
      not 'connected', not 'in succession' ?

      With other words : May "in order" be just the mix of all information
      that come to Luke into a single documents, presenting a BION of Jesus
      in continuity, and thus, "in order" would just represent the trend
      to merge stories ?
