comment Does the Greek of John 20:28 address two persons or one?
See the related "What evidence is there to show that Granville Sharp's Rule is authentic?", and the links in comments there.

comment What is the significance of Mark's 'Long Ending'?
If (in the framework of your question) there was no "long ending" to Mark, then its absence cannot have any significance for the development of Matthew and Luke. Obviously (given the scenario you sketch), Mt and Lk were not dependent on Mk at this point. Is there anything more to be said?

comment What is the significance of Mark's 'Long Ending'?
A duplicate (or quadruplicate!)? See "Does the “lost leaf” theory for Mark's abrupt ending fail if written on a scroll?", + "Is the ending of the Gospel of Mark (16:9-20) original?", + "Did Mark intend to end his gospel at 16:8?". Does attending to Markan priority alter things much? Also, recently out: N.P. Lunn, The Original Ending of Mark: A New Case for the Authenticity of Mark 16:9-20 (Wipf & Stock, 2014).

comment 2 Sam. 2:9: אֶל and עַל
ScottS - Quite right about the scope for more research, and I hear what you hear in Jenni's tone of voice, although I would say more "cautious" than "uncertain". ;) (He's also a careful scholar!) His three volumes on the inseparable prepositions are full of insight, but he wouldn't claim to be infallible. I'm aware of some work done from cognitive linguistics on particles and prepositions in both Hebrew and Greek. Lots of interest there, imo!

comment 2 Sam. 2:9: אֶל and עַל
Interesting possibility - the slight difficulty being that you're dealing with a case (for mlk + ʾel) of n = 1 (as far as I'm aware), which is a very precarious base for generalization. And especially so when there are many related cases pointing in a different direction. FWIW.
