BNTC EDINBURGH 2015
This paper examines the similar-but-different sayings on retaliation and love of enemies found in Didache 1.2-5a, Luke 6.27-36 and Matthew 5.38-48. It concludes that Luke made direct use of Did. 1.2-5a and that Matthew closely conflated the Didache with Luke's reworked version. As well as having significant implications for the study of Luke, Matthew and the Didache, this outcome offers fresh insight into the survival and development of a particular groups of sayings attributed to Jesus.
