Notes and quotes.

§ I do not find any agreements between Matthew and Luke against Mark.

§ Pseudo-Paul in 2 Timothy 2.11-13:

Πιστος ο λογος· ει γαρ συναπεθανομεν, και συζησομεν· ει υπομενομεν, και συμβασιλευσομεν· ει αρνησομεθα, κακεινος αρνησεται ημας· ει απιστουμεν, εκεινος πιστος μενει, αρνησασθαι γαρ εαυτον ου δυναται.

It is a faithful word; for if we died with him, we shall also live with him; if we endure, we shall also be kings with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself.

§ John in Revelation 3.5:

Ο νικων ουτως περιβαλειται εν ιματιοις λευκοις, και ου μη εξαλειψω το ονομα αυτου εκ της βιβλου της ζωης, και ομολογησω το ονομα αυτου ενωπιον του πατρος μου και ενωπιον των αγγελων αυτου.

He who is victorious will thus be clothed in white garments, and I shall not remove his name from the book of life, and I shall confess his name before my father and before his angels.

§ 2 Clement 3.2:

Λεγει δε και αυτος· Τον ομολογησαντα με ενωπιον των ανθρωπων, ομολογησω αυτον ενωπιον του πατρος μου.

And he also says himself: The one who confesses me before men, him will I confess before my father.
