Abstract :
A list of triple tradition pericopes is derived, demonstrating that Matthew or Luke or both always agree with the pericope sequence found in Mark. The same agreement with Mark is also found for the verses, and (usually) for the wording. It follows that Mark, or a document with almost identical wording, is intermediary in the causal chain that connects the three synoptics. In this role it is not bypassed by any competitor. In recent times the data on pericope order has been used to revive the source theory of Griesbach, but that use is resisted.
