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 of 2 July 2017: I will be revising this essay this year to take account of new findings and my Dec 2016 ETL article "Mimesis: Foot Washing from Luke to John".
