That Matthew and Luke copied from and redacted both Mark and Q is part of the two-source hypothesis.
Although the two-source hypothesis is supported by the majority of biblical scholars, it is by no means certain that this is the manner in which the Gospels were composed.
Another anomaly unexplained by the two-source hypothesis and the existence of Q is that both Matthew and Luke (perhaps coincidentally) edit out some of the same parts of Mark, such as his parable of the seed growing secretly (4:26-29) and his account of the blind man of Bethsaida (8:22-26).
Some alternate theories to the two-source hypothesis proposed to answer the synoptic problem include the Farter hypothesis and the two-gospel hypothesis.
Thus `Synoptic Problem' does nothing to indicate either that Roman Catholic opinion has widened out well beyond the priority of Matthew among the Gospels (since the elusive Divino Afflante Spiritu of 1943 and the Interpretation of the Bible in the Church of 1993, not referred to at all) or that the familiar two-source hypothesis of Mark-plus-Q is held less securely than it was, especially in homely Oxford.
