We know that the Gospel writers were all inspired by the Spirit to write, each in their own style and vocabulary and vastly different from each other. Yet some exact word-for-word verses occur. Some say "Well, that's what God told them and that's what they wrote" which assumes a dictation that is not evident in the Scripture. Another thread deals with "Q" or possible sources. I would like this to focus on DID THE GOSPEL WRITERS COPY EACH OTHER? or DID GOD DICTATE CERTAIN IDENTICAL VERSES? Also, ARE these verse identical in the Greek or just in vernacular translations? Thanks.
