The Double Tradition According to Q

The following table lists the Double Tradition material present in Matthew and Luke, based on Robinson, Hoffmann and Kloppenborg’s Critical Edition of Q, and following its order (identical to Luke’s order except in two cases). The numbered pericopes correspond to Aland’s Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum. Pericopes marked “Yes” in the “Same” column appear in the same order in both Matthew and Luke. The “Displaced” column gives the numbered pericopes for Matthew’s versions of the passages. Pericopes in parentheses designate passages where only one of Matthew’s verses is displaced, with the rest of the pericope remaining in its current order. Green pericopes are true Double Tradition passages which have no parallel in Mark. Indigo pericopes designate “Mark / Q overlaps” with the corresponding Markan passages noted.
