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).
