MARK GOODACRE is annoyed that Robert Kugler's and Patrick Hartin's, An Introduction to the Bible (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2009) doesn't even mention the Farrer Hypothesis. Current scholarly consensus (which seems to be deteriorating) says that the New Testament gospels Matthew and Luke drew on the gospel of Mark and another source called "Q" -- and possibly two other independent sources. The Farrer Hypothesis (or theory), of which Goodacre is a major advocate, says that Mark was the first gospel written. Mark then became the source for Matthew's gospel. Then, the Gospel of Luke was written using both Mark and Matthew as a source. ~ link
