Chapter Summary

There are, in comparison with the earlier parts of the gospels, a large number of contacts between the Lucan and Johannine accounts of the passion and resurrection. The Streeter-Taylor hypothesis sees Luke's special passion resurrection source as a part of a source running through the whole gospel, a source written by the evangelist from traditions special to him and from Q, to which he later added large sections of Mark. This hypothesis in its totality concerns, for virtually all the Lucan contacts with John come in the sections which Streeter and Taylor, and following them Easton, attribute to proto-Luke. These include the miraculous catch, the healing of the centurion's servant, and the anointing of Jesus by the woman who was a sinner. It is maintained that neither Luke nor John had a continuous non-synoptic source for their passion accounts.
