Title: What Does It Mean to Say That There Are Additions in Luke 7,36-50?
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 86 Issue: 4 Date: 2005
Given the early development of the tradition about the divinity of Jesus and the Marcan, then Lucan conviction about his authority to forgive sins, it seems reasonable to see how Luke 7,47-50 are not an addition from outside the story of the woman, Simon and Jesus. Rather, they can be seen as known by earliest editors of the story, with the story passed on and developed as circumstances required.
