Two-Gospel Hypothesis (Griesbach) This theory is supported by ..

The Markan Hypothesis (MkH) was the 19th-century form of the 2SH. in which all three synoptics are independently derived from a proto-Gospel, called (; ; cf. ). Ur-Markus was proposed as a lost first edition of Mark that contains the material thought to be problematic when the second source was strictly conceived as a sayings collection on the so-called of Papias (early 2d cen.). This material (my term) includes the preaching of John the Baptist, the baptism and temptation of Jesus, and the healing of the centurion's boy. Ur-Markus fell out of favor as Q was regarded more flexibly, however and most of those differences between Ur-Markus and Mark were considered to be and based on the argumentation of , , and .

Basics 1.1 What is the synoptic problem

If Mark was first, however, then it is easy to explain how Matthew and Luke inserted the extra material they have in common (from the Q source?) into Mark's overall outline, although in significantly different ways.Note that scholars who believe Mark was historically first do not suggest that the order of the four Gospels in the New Testament should be changed; there is no reason why the traditional order (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) cannot be retained in printed Bibles.

The Synoptic Problem & Proposed Solutions

A documentary relationship may be either direct orindirect. The hypothesis of direct dependence ()holds that one evangelist knew and used to the gospel ofanother. One example of direct dependence is thetraditional Augustinian Hypothesis, which holds thatMatthew was first, followed by Mark who used Matthew, andthen by Luke who used both Matthew and Mark. Indirectdependence ( )posits that at least two of the evangelists have used acommon written source.

This web page is a summary of the arguments for the priority of Mark

- The similarities between Matthew, Mark, and Luke are so numerous and so close, not just in the order of the material presented but also in the exact wording of long stretches of text, that it is not sufficient to explain these similarities on the basis of common alone. Rather, some type of must be assumed as well. That is, someone copied from someone else's previously written text; several of the evangelists must have used one or more of the earlier Gospels as sources for their own compositions. The situation is complicated because some of the material is common to all three Synoptics, while other material is found in only two out of these three Gospels (see the suggested below). Moreover, the common material is not always presented in the same order in the various Gospels. So, the question remains, who wrote first, and who copied from whom?

On the basis of the resulting presupposition indicated by this evidence -- that Mark could be the common source for Matthew and Luke -- the omission of small bits of Markan special material by Matthew and Luke is thoroughly comprehensible; the two healings (by means of magical manipulations) and the position adopted by the relatives of Jesus are offensive; Mk.
