Subtitle: A Rejoinder for Independence

Mk 4,21, the saying on the lamp, has a direct Lucan parallel in Lk 8,16; a vari-
ant form appears in Lk 11,33 parallel Mt 5,15, which is considered a Q-version of
the saying. Among other Mark–Q overlaps, H.T. Fleddermann proposes that here
Mark uses and redacts Q for his text1. In this note, we will present Fleddermann’s
argument and show why he has not demonstrated his position, concluding that it
is more probable that the lamp saying in Mk 4,21 is independent from Q 11,33.
