As I begin to move forward with research for my thesis, I thought I would share this little bit of data that I’ve collected which shows the various attestations of the questions Jesus asks in the Gospel of Luke. It is noteworthy that Luke contains around 47 original questions, not including parallels in which a statement in Matthew or Mark is changed to a question in Luke.

Though my thesis will mainly be concerned with a rhetorical study of The Gospel of Luke as a literary unit, it is difficult to completely separate the questions of Jesus in the Third Gospel from the sticky issue of the Synoptic Problem.

I did not include Q or Thomasine parallels out of deep respect for Mark Goodacre and Joel Watts.
