John’s death (only flashback  story in Mark) 
94 14.13-14
95 26
14.15-21 Feeding 500 - grass but not green as in Mark Manna: Ex 16.1-38; Num 11.4-9
96 27
14.22-33 N2: Exod 16.4 14.25: 'And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them' T1: Gen 31.3: 31.24: 'And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream of the night'
97 14.34-36
98 28
15.1-20 N1: Gen 33.18 15.11(bis),18,20:'defiles the man' Gen 33.18: 34.5,7,27: these passages say Shechem 'defiled' Dinah
15.4: 'Honour thy father and thy mother' (citing Deut 5.16) N3+1:Deut 4.25-6.3
99 29
100 30
15.29-38 N1:Gen37.1
15.31 '... the crowd wondered when they saw the dumb speaking, ... and they glorified the God of Israel.' Exod 9.13: "Thus says the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, "Let my people go that they may serve me."
101 15.39-16.12 N1: Gen 38.1
T1: Exod 10.1
16.1-4 Pharisees and Sadducees came, tempting, and asking for a sign
16.3 'the signs of the times' Exod 10: ? The ten plagues completed in Exod 10.
16.4 '"No sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonah"' cf. Exod 11.1: '"Yet one more plague will I bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt"', namely the slaying of the first-born.
16.4 'And he left them and departed' Exod 10.28f.: Moses departs from Pharaoh for the last time before the Passover
16.5-12 The discussion of the two feedings and the warning against the leaven, i.e., teaching,  of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Exod 12.1-20: Mark's 46 lections per cycle gives grounds for suggesting that Adar, the 12th month, was kept open for special Sabbath readings leading up to Passover (as per Adolf Büchler, J.Q.R. vi).  One of these was Sabbath Hachodesh on which Exod 12.1-20 was read with vv. 18-20 requiring the removal of leaven before the feast.  This practice of removing all leaven before the feast is reflected here in Matt 16.5-12, whether or not Sabbath Hachodesh was observed as such.  This explains why this section anticipates Exod 12.18-20.
102 33
16.13-20 N1:Gen39.1
T3: Deut 34.10
Peter's confession at Caesarea Philippi
    According to Ruddick's work , Mark locates Peter's confession plus the following section on discipleship against Gen 40 as N1, Gen 2.4-3.21 as T1, and Exod 12.29-51 as T2.  Ruddick has detected numerous links to the LXX in all three sections of Mark, but every one of the links occurs in the section on discipleship (Mk 8.34-9.1), and not a single one in the story of Peter's confession.  In Matthew the only LXX links retained from Mark are those which which link the discipleship section (which begins at Matt 16.21) to Gen 40.
       What Pentateuchal links is the confession likely to have, then?  The answer appears to be in part that we have reached the month of Tishri and New Year's Day, and the likely lessons to be echoed are those which were read on 1stor 2nd Tishri.  These appear to have been in the first century: Deut 5, which fell to that time anyway as the N3 lection, and Gen 22,1 the Binding of Isaac.  According to the Tosephta, Gen 22 was another reading for the observance, with Gen 21 apparently being read on 1st or 2nd Tishri, and Gen 22 on 2nd Tishri.
       Thus we may look for links to Gen 39.1 (N1), Deut 34.10 (T3), Deut 5 (RH and N3, or nearly so), and Gen 21-22 (RH).
1For Gen 22 as the Torah Seder for Rosh ha-Shanah, New Year's Day, see T. Meg. iii.6; b. Meg. 31a.  Cave indicates that this is what gave rise to the tradition that Rachel was remembered at Rosh ha-Shanah (b. R. H. 10b).  See Cave, The Lectionary of  the Synagogue and the Synoptic Gospels, on Gen 22.
16.14 "John the Baptist..., Elijah..., Jeremiah or one of the prophets" Deut 34.10: No prophet has since arisen in Israel like Moses.
16.16 "the Son" Gen 22.2: "your son, your only son, whom you love, even Isaac"
16.16 "of the Living God" Deut 5.26 "the living God" [This same passage is also echoed in the Transfiguration narrative.]
103 16.21-27 N1: Gen 40.1
16.21 Jesus speaks of the necessity of his passion and death, and states that on the third day he will be raised (aorist passive) Gen 40.13: Joseph foretells that within three days Pharaoh will set up the chief butler.
104 16.28-17.8
N1: Gen 41.1
T1: Gen 3.22
T2: Exod 13.1
16.18-17.13: Mark's narrative is strongly linked to all three lections.  Matthew retains all the LXX links of Mark in the Transfiguration and Coming of Elijah sections, while deleting those pertaining to the subsequent story of the possessed boy.
17.1 "After six days" Exod 13.6: "Six days you shall eat unleavened bread."
17.1 "lofty mountain" [εἰς ὄρος ὑψηλὸν] Exod 14.8: Israel goes out with a lofty hand. [ἐν χειρὶ ὑψηλῇ]
17.5 A cloud overshadows them Exod 13.21: God leads them in a pillar of cloud.
17.5 A voice says, "This is my beloved Son, hear him." [ἰδοὺ φωνὴ ἐκ τῆς νεφέλης ... ἀκούετε αὐτοῦ] Gen 3.8: Adam and Eve hear the voice of God in the garden. [Καὶ ἤκουσαν τὴν φωνὴν κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ]
Deut 5.26: "For who ... has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of fire, as we have, and has still lived?"
Gen 22.2 LXX: "beloved son"
17.6 "They feared exceedingly" [καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα] Exod 14.10 LXX:  καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα [this is a Matthaean addition]
105 17.9-13
17.10 "And his disciples ask him saying, 'What ...?'" Exod 13.14: "If your son asks, 'What is this...?'"
17.12 Jesus says of John/Elijah, "They did to him as many things as they wished" [ἐποίησαν ἐν αὐτῷ ὅσα ἠθέλησαν] Gen 41.28: Joseph says, as many things as God does he has shown to Pharaoh. [Ὅσα ὁ θεὸς ποιεῖ]
106 35
17.14-21 N1: Gen 41.38
17.14 "a man kneeling to him" [γονυπετῶν] Gen 41.43: They cried before Joseph, "Bow the knee!" [MT, not LXX; the phrase is a Matthaean addition.]
107 17.22-23 N1: Gen 42.18
17.22 "When they were gathering in Galilee" Gen 43.30 LXX: Jospeh's intestines gathered upon his brother [The verb is a Matthaean modification.]
17.23 "And they sorrowed exceedingly" Gen 42.38: Jacob says, "... and you will bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grace [The phrase is a Matthaean addition.]
108 36
N1: Gen 42.18 Temple tax
The Matthaean location of this story is against Gen 42.18-43.13 as a Nisan cycle lection.  If we take the same lection in its Tishri cycle location, then against it would fall Exod 30.11-16 dealing with the temple tax (Nisan cycle, second year).  Thus this section of Matthew would appear to be one of the many cases in which Matthew has shifted his material from its location in one cycle (in this case in the Tishri cycle) to the corresponding location in the other cycle (i.e., the Nisan cycle).
17.27 "When you open its mouth, you will find a shekel" [τὸ στόμα] Gen 4.27: Joseph's brother's money was " in the mouth of his sack". [τοῦ στόματος τοῦ μαρσίππου]
109 37
18.1-6 N1: Gen 43.13
18.2 "And he called to him a little child and set him in the midst of them." Gen 43.7: "Bring your brother down" (i.e., Benjamin)
18.4 "Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Gen 43.34: "Benjamin's portion was five times as much as any of theirs."
110 18.7-18 N1: Gen 44.18-46.27
18.12 A man with one hundred sheep seeking one stray N1+1: Gen 46.32: Joseph tells Pharaoh that his kinsmen are shepherds.
18.10 "Do not despise one of these little ones." Gen 45.22: "To each and all of them he gave festal garments, but to Benjamin he gave 300 shekels of silver and five festal garments."
18.14 "It is not the will of my Father in heaven that one of these little ones should perish." N1+1: Gen 47.12-27: the famine years; 47.12: "And Joseph nourished his father and his brothers and all his father's household, according to the number of their little ones."
18.18 "... whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven" Gen 44.10f. concerning Judah: "... and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.  Binding his foal to the vine ..." [The verb is not the same in the LXX.]
111 18.19-35 N1: Gen 49.27-50.26
18.19 "If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." Gen 50.16-17: "Your father gave this command before he died, 'say to Joseph, Forgive, I pray you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin ...
18.21 "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?  Until seven times?2 ... And now we pray you, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father."
18.35 "So also my heavenly Father will do ... if you do not forgive your brother from your heart." Gen 50.19-21: "But Joseph said to them, 'Fear not, for am I in the place of God? ...'  Thus he reassured them and comforted them.
2This may be related to Pharaoh in Exodus, since the entreating of the Lord on Pharaoh's behalf is mentioned seven times, Exod 8.8, 28, 29, 30; 9.28; 10.17, 18.  But the 'seven' and the seventy-times seven" more likely reflect Lamech's vow of vengeance, Gen 4.24.
112 19.1-2  
19.2 "And crowds followed him." Gen 50.9: "And there went up with him ... a very great company."
       We have reached the end of the Genesis lections, but we about to start again with them immediately in the next section.  It may be possible that, as before, Exod 1-10 is overlaid on some of the above material.  Without a great deal of conviction at this juncture, we may suggest a tentative outline for anchoring any correlation that there may be -- if there is one.
17.26: The sons are free
18.5:    in my name
18.10:  my father
18.14:  your Father in heaven
18.19:  my Father
18.20:  in my name
18.32:  I forgave you ... because you besought me.
18.34:  In anger his Lord delivered him to the tormentors.
2.10: He became her son
3.6    I am the God of thy father ...

4.22: Israel is my son, my first-born

6.2:   (Yahweh reveals his name)
10.18: (The last of the seven times the entreating of the Lord for Pharaoh is mentioned.)
10.29: (Final confrontation between Moses and Pharaoh before the Passover)
       If nothing else, this outline appears to reveal a chiasm that extends at least from 18.5 ("in my name") to 18.20 ("in my name").
       Previously Exod 1-10 was found laid over the references to the last chapters of Genesis, as echoed in Matt 10.2-11.24, so that Exod 1-10 led up to Gen 1 of Matt 11.25.  This time it would appear that Exod 1-12 follows on from Gen 1, so that the major discernible elements of Exod 1-12 will be found from Matt 19.3-14.51, as we shall see.  We shall designate these lections as N' and the new Nisan sequence of Genesis as simply N.
113 40
19.3-12 N1: Gen 1.1-3.21
N'1: Exod 1.1
T'3: Deut 23.9 (MT 10)-24.18
19.4 "Have you not read that he who created from the beginning made them male and female ...." Gen 1.27; 2.18, 21-23.
19.5 "and said, 'For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother ... and the two shall become one flesh.'" Citing Gen 2.24.
19.7 Moses' command for a bill of divorcement Deut 24.1-4.
114 19.13-15 N'1: Exod 1.1-2.25
19.14 "Allow the little children, and forbid them not." ? Exod 2.12-25: Pharaoh attempts to kill the male Hebrew children, but the midwives say, "They are delivered before the midwife comes".
19.15 "And he laid his hands on them and departed thence" ?Exod 2.12-25: Moses smites the Egyptian, v. 12, and then subsequently flees, v. 15.
115 41
19.16-26 N1: Gen 3.22-4 end
19.16 "What good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?" ?Gen 3.22: "Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever ..."
19.18-19 Citing from Decalogues of Exod 10 and Deut 5.  Apart from the Jewish tradition that Adam was given Torah in the form of one commandment, here seems to be no means of bending these citations to our purposes.
19.21 N1: Gen 8.1-9.17 "If you would be perfect, go ... and come, follow me."  Gen 6.9: "Noah was a righteous man, perfect in his generation, and Noah walked with God."
116 19.27-29 N1: Gen 9.18-10.22 (This is T1 in Mark)
19.29  Disciples receive a hundredfold and life.  Gen 9.1ff.: Noachic covenant, v. 15: "I will remember my covenant between you and every living creature ... and the waters shall no more become a food to destroy all flesh"; v. 19 "... the sons of Noah, and of these was the whole earth overspread." 
117 42
19.30-20.16 N1: Gen 9.18-10.22
19.30; 20.16 Concerning the last being first and the first last, but in inverse order in the two verses Gen 9.23-37: Noah's sons who walk backwards top cover his nakedness are blessed, but not Ham's son, Canaan.
20.1-15 Labourers for householder's vineyard. Gen 9.26: Noah's vineyard,
118 20.17-19 N1: Gen 11.1-32 This third time of speaking of the necessity of the passion falls to Gen 11 almost by default because of its location Gen 11.10ff. is the Priestly continuation of the genealogy of the nations.  This forms an appropriate background to the mention of "the Gentiles" in Matt 20.19, and the genealogy culminates in Abram, which is very appropriate to Matthew's theology, with its stress on Jesus as the Son of Abraham.
119 43
20.20-28 N1: Gen 12.1-17.27
N2: Exod 22.1-22.23 
(This is the T1 location in Mark) 
20.27 He who is first will be a servant. Exod 21.1: slaves are to serve six years.
20.28 The Son of man gives his life as a ransom for all Esod 21.20: The giving of a ransom for one's life.
120 44
20.30, 31 The two blind men cry out to God.
20.34 They see again [look up] Gen 15.5: God tells Abraham to look up.
121(a) 45
21.1-10 N1: Gen 18.1
N2: Exod 22.24
(These are T1 and T2 respectively in Mark)
21.1 Jesus draws near to Jerusalem Gen 18.23: Abraham draws near to God.
21.1 He goes to the mountain. Exod 24.12: Moses goes to the mountain.
21.1 Jesus sends two disciples into the v0illage opposite Gen 18.6: Abraham and the two angels are opposite Sodom.
21.2 They find a colt tied Gen 18.26: God does not find fifty righteouis men.
21.10 All the city was stirred. Gen 18.28: Will you destroy all the city for lack of five?
121(b) 21.11-17 N1: Gen 19.1
21.11 The crowds say Jesus is the prophet. N1+1: Gen 20.7: God says to Abimelech that Abraham is a prophet.
21.12 They come into Jerusalem  Gen 19.1: The two angekls come into Salem.
21.13 The temple is a den of thieves. Gen 19.30: Lot dwells in a cave/den.
21.17 Jesus goes outside the city. Gen 19.15-17: Lot goes outside the city.
122 47
21.18-22 N1: Gen 20.1
N3-2: Num 19.1-20.13
21.18 Early in the morning Jesus returns to the city Gen 19.27: Early in the morning Abraham gets up to the place where he had stood before the Lord, and he looked toward Sodom.
Gen 20.7: Abimelech rises early in the morning.
21.18 He finds a fig tree with leaves but no figs. Num 20.5: Israelites say wilderness is an evil place, no place of figs.
21.19 The fruitless fig tree is suddenly withered. Gen 19.24: The Lord rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah.
21.22 You will receive all that your ask in prayer, believing. Gen 20.7: Abraham will pray for Abimelech.
123 48
21.23-32 N1: Gen 21.1
21.28-32 Parable of the two sons Gen 21: Abraham's two sons, Isaac and Ishmael; cf. also the parallel stories of the strivings of Isaac's two sons, Gen 25.2-28.9.
124 50
21.33-44 N1: Gen 21.1
21.38-39 v. 38: "This is the heir, cast him out."; v. 39: The heir of the vineyard is cast out. Gen 21.10: Sarah says to cast out Hagar and Ishmael so that he may not be heir with Isaac..
125 21.45-22.14 N1: Gen 21.1
T1: Gen 41.38-42.37
N'1: Exod 3.1-4.17*
T'1: Gen 21.1*
* Mark's location.
       In Matthew the disciples of the Pharisees ask if it is right to pay taxes.  In Gen 21.15-30 Abraham pays Abimelech for the well dug by Abraham that Abimelech's servants had taken by force.  In Gen 41.38-42.37 Joseph's brothers are forced by the famine to give him money for food.
       Links retained from Mark to the lXX version of Exod 3.1-4.17 are that Jesus does not look upon the face of men (v. 22; Exod 3.6) but teaches the way of God (v. 16; Exod 3.18).  The major link from Mark is the citing of Exod 3.6 in Matt 22.32.
126 52
22.15-22 N1: Gen 22.1-23.30
The Sadducees' question about the resurrection (vv.23, 28, 31) from the dead (v. 31) and the raising up (v. 24) of seed (vv. 24f.) to a dead man from a wife who then died childless.

In Gen 22.1-23.20 after the Binding of Isaac, God's promise to multiply Abraham's seed is renewed (22.17), Abraham and his son returned to his young men (22.5, 19), and they rose up (22.19).  Then Sarah died (23.2), and Abraham rose up from the dead one (23.3) and bought a field in which to bury his dead (23.4-20).

22.19 The Pharisees "err/wander" Gen 21.14: Hagar wandered.
127 53
128 54
       In this section on the great commandment, Jesus cites in vv. 37 and 39 Deut 6.5 and Lev 19.18 respectively.  They are not related to the Sabbath lectionary at this point either in Matthew or in Mark (Ruddick locates this section, Mark 12.28-34, against Gen 21.1 (T1) and Exod 3.1 (N1) without mentioning them.
129 55
22.41-46 N1: Gen 22.1
N'1: Exod 4.18-6.1
T'1: Gen 22.1
22.42 Whose son  is the Christ? T'1: Exod 4.22f.: God calls Israel his son, his firstborn. [And the sonship that Jesus fulfils is Israel's calling in the covenant.]
130 56
23.1-14 N1: Gen 22.1?
       This opening section of the woes against the scribes and Pharisees, with its reference to enlarging the "borders" (v. 5), could reasonably be taken as parallel to the border around Abraham's field in Mamre (Gen 23.17), but the word is not the same in the LXX.
131 23.15-22 N1: Gen 24.1
N'1: Exod 6.2-7.7
23.16-22 This section, concerning the making of proselytes (v. 15) and foreswearing (vv. 16-22) may be related to Abraham:- Gen 24.7: "The Lord, ... that swore to me, saying, 'To your seed will I give this land'";
Exod 6.8 (same promise): "And I will bring you into the land which I lifted up my hand [i.e., swore] to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob."
132 23.23-24 N1: Gen 22.1?
23.23 The deep things of Torah: justice, mercy and faith (cf. Micah 6.8). ? Gen 22:Abraham's faith in binding Isaac plus the sacrificial efficacy in Jewish thought of the binding may just possibly be echoed here.
133 23.25-26 N'1: ? Exod 7.8-8.15
Tentatively we would suggest that the scribes' and Pharisees' cleansing of the outside of the cup and plate in these verses may reflect:- Exod 7.24: The Egyptians digging round about the Nile rather than drinking the bloody Nile.
This in turn might then relate to the necessity of drinking the cup (of Jesus' blood) that the disciples must drink (Matt.26.27-28; cf. 20.22-23).
134 23.27-28 N1: Gen 23.1
The references to sepulchres and dead men's bones might echo:- Gen 23.20, which speaks of Abraham possessing a burying place.
135 23.29-39 N1: Gen 24.1
N'1: Exod 7.8-10.29
23.29-34, 37
the death and tombs of prophets
Gen 20.7: back to Abraham as prophet
Gen 24.1:  Abraham stricken in age.
Gen 25.8-10: forward to his death and burial.
23.33 "Behold, I send to you ..." Gen 24.7, 40: Abraham's words: "The Lord ... will send his angel before you."
Gen 24.2-4: Abraham sends his servant to get a wife for Isaac.
(cf. Gen 28.1-7: Isaac sends Jacob to get a wife.)
scourging and persecuting
Exod 7.8-8.15: May relate to the plagues, including turning of Nile to blood .
23.39 "You shall not see me again." Exod 10.28: "See my face no more", the final separating of Pharaoh and Moses.
136 24.1-2
137 57
24.3 "sign". Exod 7.3.
24.5 Coming in Jesus' name. Gen 24.34: Servant comes in Abraham's name.
Exod 6.3: "by my name Jahweh"
24.6 "I am" Exod 7.5
24.7 God will "send his angels". Gen 24.7, 40: God sends his angel.
24.9 "tribulation" - ? reference to all the plagues of:- Exod 7.8-10.29?
24.3 "sign". Exod 7.5.
24.22 "signs and wonders" Exod 7.3.
24.29 sun and moon darkened Exod 10.21f.: three days of darkness over Egypt.
138 58
24.36-43 N1: Gen 124.1-42 N'1: Gen 27.1-28.9
139 24.45-51
24.36-51 24.36-51 repeatedly speak of none (but the Father, 24.36) knowing the day or hour of the coming, of the necessity to watch and be ready. Exod 12.42: "the night of watchings to be observed to the Lord"
The motif of the coming of the Lord at an unexpected day and hour to render judgement Exod 11.4: "Thus says the Lord, 'About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt ....'"
Gen 24, the fetching of Rebekah to be Isaac's bride appears to be reflected at numerous points:-
24.38 Marrying and being given in marriage Gen 24.51, 57
24.40 Two men in a field Gen 24.63: Isaac in field
24.45-46 The faithful and wise servant set over the household Gen 24.2: Abraham's servant that ruled over all that he had.
The contrast between the wise servant and the wicked one. Gen 25.2--28.9: The Jacob and Esau stories.
The motif of giving food at the proper time Gen 26.7: Isaac's feeding of his father, being blessed by him, with Esau's subsequent loss of the blessing.
140 59
25.1-13 The coming of the bridegroom to the wise and foolish virgins Gen 24.64f.: Unexpectedness on Rebekah's part of Isaac coming to meet her in the field.
25.14-30 The parable of the talents with its good and faithful servant Gen 24.8, 41: Abraham's servant and the onus on him to fulfil the assigned task of finding a bride.
Gen 26.7: Isaac's feeding of his father, being blessed by him, with Esau's subsequent loss of the blessing.
141 61
25.31-40 N1: Gen 27.1-28.9
25.35, 37, 42 The giving of a drink Gen 24.17-25: Rebekah gives Abraham's servant a drink, lodging and food.
Gen 27: Isaac feeding his father.
Gen 29.10: Jacob watering Laban's flock for Rachel.

143 26.1-5
144 62
