This study traces the debate surrounding Luke's use of the Gospel of Mark and special sources, such as Proto-Luke, in a section of the passion narrative (Luke chapter 22 verse 54 to chapter 23 verse 25). The survey covers roughly the period from the 1880s to 1997. Part One details the development from P. Feine to the 1960s. Part Two begins with G. Schneider continuing up through 1997. In treating each scholar's position, the author reviews their underlying Synoptic theory, their source theory in the passion in general, then the trial of Pilate, and finally the trial before Herod. Part Three is devoted to an interpretation of Luke chapter 23 verses six to 16. Part Four contains lists of abbreviations, the bibliography, and three appendices: special LQ vocabulary and constructions according to J. Weiss; Lukan priority theories; and the Gospel of Peter and its relation to the Herod pericope. Part Four concludes with the name index.
