Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Traditions common to the Gospels of Luke and John presents the summary which talks about the approach to Jerusalem the two evangelists drew on similar, but not identical, written accounts of the event, whereas they both knew the same oral account of the last supper and the same written account of Jesus' examination before Annas. The instances characterizing related material is, the variety of the means by which the relationship came about; there is no evidence for either Luke's or John's having drawn such material from a continuous source which one or both of them knew. The evidence of analysis points to the existence in the Church at the time both evangelists wrote of many isolated written and oral traditions the former having been written down in connection with their use for catechetical or liturgical purposes on which the two writers drew.
