Notes and quotes.

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

  • Though Matthew 9.35 and Luke 8.1 are not parallel, the former has κηρυσσων το ευαγγελιον της βασιλειας και (preaching the gospel of the kingdom and) while the latter has κηρυσσων και ευαγγελιζομενος την βασιλειαν του θεου και (preaching and spreading the gospel of the kingdom of God and). Mark 6.6 lacks any such phrase.
