Abstract Scholars often puzzle over Luke’s response to the doublets he encountered in Mark and Q, and some have suggested that Luke avoids doublets. A complete survey of Luke’s gospel demonstrates, though, that Luke creates doublets on his own, and he frequently enhances the doublets he takes over from Mark and Q by assimilating the two forms to each other. When Luke omits doublets, he always drops the Marcan form; and most often the omission occurs because he drops a Marcan block while pursuing a broad compositional goal like integrating Q smoothly into the Marcan outline. Luke does not omit doublets because they are doublets.
