Clarifying Verses Added to Matthew

The verses in this table display the clarifying phrases or sentences added by the translator to Markan material when it was merged into Greek Matthew according to the theory proposed in this work. The portions of the verses in black are present in the Markan passages. Phrases coloured indigo and in italics represent the additions made by the translator (which were therefore not present in either Semitic Matthew or Mark). [It is possible that the translator also added some clarifying phrases to some of the Semitic Matthaean material, but it would be highly speculative to attempt to identify such phrases.]
