Is there any legitimate reason given by scholars as to why Luke uniquely adds the account of Jesus healing the ear of Malchus after it being severed off?
In Luke 22:50-51, it is written,
50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him. Berean Study Bible
Did Luke fabricate this story, or is it only added because Luke was a physician and it appealed to his field of work?
