No. I find it rather curious that so many are running
to my aide to solve *my* confusion, which is false,
when the problem of confusion belongs to Mr. Gentile.
The fact that no one grasps the logic problem is
disturbing. The terms need to be clarified in his
propositions. That is all I was attempting to point
out all along. As they stand they lend themselves to
various interpretations which has become evident just
not correspond with Dave's own example of "the brown
fox jumps". Compare your take on it to his.

Best,

• Correction. The following reads: 5 Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has with A. (* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a parallel narrative
Message 36 of 36 , May 2, 2002
Correction.

5 Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has with
A.
(* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a
parallel narrative with A, but in a parallel phrase
with A
6. Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) or verse
in B exclusively.
(11) Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) in B
exclusively.
(12) Words used in a unique verse in B exclusively.

But should be corrected as follows:
(10) Words that are different between A & B having the
same subject, but which are not parallel narratives.
(11) Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has
with A.
(* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a
parallel narrative with A, but in a parallel phrase
with A
6. Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) or verse
in B exclusively.
(12) Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) in B
exclusively.
(13) Words used in a unique verse in B exclusively.

Consequently, there are thirteen, not twelve
categories.

There are two classes of focus dictated by the design
of the essentially required categories.

Class 1 comprises a study of narrative parallels and
non-parallels that show either possible redaction or
author's style demonstrated in the following twelve
categories:
Categories 1, 2, (3), (4), (6), (7), (8), (9), (10),
(11), (12), (13).

Class 2 comprises a study of narrative parallels and
non-parallels that show overlap between Synoptic
Gospels sharing words and material to escalating
degrees of verisimilitude demonstrated in the
following five categories:
Categories 2, (5), (6), (7), (9).

Four categories: 2, (6), (7), (9) have dual functions
since they share words and material that overlap as
well as demonstrate either possible redaction or
author's style. Each should be assessed separately.
