Notes and quotes.
§ I count the following agreements between Matthew and Luke against Mark:
- Matthew 13.10 and Luke 8.9 have οι
μαθηται (the disciples) where Mark 4.10 has οι
(those around him with the twelve).
- Matthew 13.10 uses the relative pronoun
τι as part of the expression
δια τι (why).
Luke 8.9 uses the relative pronoun
τις (who or what).
Mark 4.10 has a different construction with no parallel word.
- Matthew 13.11 has ο
ειπεν (but he... said).
Luke 8.10 has ο
ειπεν (but he said).
Mark 4.11 has και
ελεγεν (and he was saying).
- Matthew 13.11 and Luke 8.10 each have
(to you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom).
Mark 4.11 has υμιν
(to you the mystery of the kingdom has been given).
A major agreement.
§ Thomas 41:
Jesus said: Whoever has something in his hand,
they will give him more, and whoever has nothing, they will take away
from his hand the little that he has.
