Presentation
From Luke to John: Lazarus, Mary, and Martha in the Fourth Gospel
Eastern Great Lakes Biblical Society 2011 Annual Meeting (2011)

Abstract
Here I examine John’s Raising of Lazarus and Anointing of Jesus texts and explore literary parallels with Luke’s Lazarus and Mary/Martha texts. I show first that there is a significant and orderly array of such parallels between the Luke and John texts, constituting strong evidence of inter-textual influence between Luke and John. I then show that this relationship is literary rather than oral, and that the literary dependence flows from Luke to John. This paper was not accepted for presentation by the panel moderator.  

Note 27 November 2019: I have submitted for publication the first of two planned essays on Mary, Martha, and Lazarus.

Note 23 August 2020: this first essay, on Mary and Martha, after rejection from one journal, has been under review at a second journal since June 2020; a draft copy of the essay, "Gathered into One: Figural Echoes and Connections in John 11-13," is now posted on this page at https://works.bepress.com/klyoder/51/.
