Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the study of the intrinsic character of the variant readings. As to the expression "to enter the synagogue", Lucan usage is well documented. The occasion to which 3:1 may or may not refer, and the phrase, therefore, that may have influenced the wording at 3:1. In any case, the evidence does not allow us to define Mark's usage at precisely this point. In these cases, there are hardly any variants, and several times, the articular expression is found in Matthew and Luke as well. They never drop the article so as to employ an anarthrous prepositional expression. In Mark 3:1, the majority reading would fall into this class. When, in other cases, there is no article, variants which supply the article occurs in four out of five instances. In no instance a parallel in Matthew or Luke favours the anarthrous prepositional clause.

Keywords: anarthrous prepositional expression; articular expression; Lucan usage; Mark 3:1; variant readings
