John P. Meier

Meier Marginal Jew (II,423-430) suggests that "a number of considerations tip the balance in favor of authenticity" for the "isolated logion" he finds behind Luke 17:20b, 21b. In a lengthy footnote (n. 106 on II,476f), Meier argues (against Crossan and James M. Robinson) that Thom 3 and 113 are dependent on the Lukan form and cannot be taken as independent witnesses to this logion.
