But Farmer-Griesbach has its own problems, as many on this list have 
pointed out and will continue to do so.  And as I stated before, positing 
a Quelle (n) which the Synoptics drew on stands alone.  There is a 
difference between recognizing this source material and the 2 Source 
Hypothesis.  Thus, arguing for Matthean priority means rejection of the 2 
Source, but not necessarily rejection of Q (s).
