5 True/False questions

  1. Mark - AuthorshipChurch Tradition
    From Scripture we know:
    -A gentile doctor (Col 4:11,14) of what is unknown
    -with Paul at the end of his life (II Tim 4:11)
    -may have traveled with Paul (changes from "they" to "we" in Acts)
    -direct access to Mary, her children or someone close to her
    Theophilus - a real person or literary device (name lit. means "friend of God"). if real, a patron of Luke


  2. Streeter's Hypothesis1863


  3. Mark - StructureThree themes woven together throughout the book
    "L" Material of the Infancy Narrative:
    -Mtt writes about scripture fulfilled, Lk writes like he's continuing scripture
    -canticles (Mary's Magnificat = Hannah's Song in I Sam)
    -Samuel parallels


  4. Luke - Style-fits a Roman mindset (give us the story, not the extra details)
    1) historic present tense
    2) participle pile up - lots of "ing"
    3) εὐθὐς - "immediately" used as a fill word
    4) Abruptness - not concerned with the birth of Christ, in the first 13 verses: OT foundations, John the Baptist, Jesus, Jesus' baptism, Jesus sent to the wilderness/temptation and the beginning of ministry


  5. Matthew - AuthorshipMatthew is not a logical choice for an invented author
    Church Tradition: Papias - Matthew written in Aramaic
    Theory - an Aramaic testimonia book (M) became the basis of the Gospel along with Mk and Q.
