    This is novel stuff, completely at odds with the facts contained in Scripture itself:

      Ted, why does the idea that Luke had a copy of Matthew’s gospel create a crisis in evangelical scholarship (to quote the page you linked to)?

    Mark Goodacre is right in proposing that Luke had a copy of Matthew in front of him when he wrote his gospel. But he is wrong in thinking that this disproves the proposal that there was an early sayings source. Once it is perceived that both proposals are needed if the synoptic problem is to be solved (a perception that goes back at least as far as Holtzmann), only then is it possible to reconstruct an early sayings source which truly reflects the sayings of Jesus.
