This just in:

Michael Bird suggests Jesus' followers used notebooks to remember his teachings. Yes. And why not? As Bird points out with a bevy of ancient examples, such a practice wasn't all that uncommon.

Please read for yourself (and enjoy) his very careful considerations, at Euangelion.

Didn't Jesus vary his teachings from place to place, which explains why the Sermon on the Mount has Beatitudes which differ from those in Luke's big Sermon?

Didn't Jesus bother to write down his own words, so he could remember exactly what he had said?
