Although I myself think that Luke was the companion of Paul, it is rare that a decision on this traditional controversy is required for interpreting the Gospel. But there are passages which in my view imply that Luke has been influenced by some of the Pauline letters, especially 1 Corinthians and 1 Thessalonians; and Chapter 4 offers some justification for this unorthodox conclusion. Chapter 5 is a minimizing restatement of the relation of Luke to a first-century church calendar. In The Evangelists' Calendar (1978) I explored the possibility that Luke in particular was writing in the light of the liturgy: that his Gospel was intended to be read serially round the year, to give suitable Christian material for both the festivals and the weekly lections.

The conclusions of Gospel criticism have been to a large measure built on sand, much of it shifting sand.

50), What could have moved Luke to break up Matthew’s Sermon on the M ount and to embody part o f it in his Sermon on the Plain, to distribute part over the various chapters of his Gospel, and to omit part? How is the fact to be explained that Luke not a single time brings the texts common to Matthew (naturally apart from the Baptism text and the Temptation story) to the same place in the Marcan plan as Matthew, if he took them over out o f Matthew, and therewith in dependence upon the Markan sequence which is also encountered in Matthew?
