      changing it. But the theory cannot account for Mt's behaviour. Why is Mt
      inconsistent when he seems to prefer the expression he used four times (esp.
      Mt 12:36). Thus my problem with the Farrer theory is that it cannot explain
      Mt's behaviour here since Lk's presence should have no affect.<<

      Tim,

      You appear to grant that Luke's consistency in using Mathhew here can be
      explained on the Farrer theory, but you contend that Matthew's inconsistency
      cannot.  Thus we need to hypothesize a source for Matthew.   Have you
      considered the possibility that Matthew's ANASTHSONTAI EN TH KRISEI in 12.41
      may have LXX Psalms 1.5, ANASTHSONTAI...  EN KRISEI as its "source", and
      that Mt. 12.42 uses EN TH KRISEI because it was constructed in parallel with
      12.41?

      Best Wishes,

      Ken
