Notes and quotes.

§ I note the following agreement between Matthew and Luke against Mark:

  • Matthew 14.1 calls Herod a τετρααρχης (tetrarch) and follows with a direct object, την ακοην (hearing or rumor). Luke 9.7 likewise calls Herod a τετρααρχης (tetrarch) and follows with a different direct object, τα γινομενα παντα (all that had happened). Mark 6.14 calls Herod a βασιλευς (king) and lacks a direct object.

§ The saying about John the baptist risen is intercalated with the mission of the twelve in Mark and Luke.

§ Confer Matthew 16.13b-14 = Mark 8.27b-28 = Luke 9.18b-19.
