    What are your thoughts on the Q theory ?

    • MSH says:

      Q of course is hypothetical. That said, I’m not bothered by the idea that gospel writers used sources or that they could all have drawn something from a common source. The issue is whether one needs to come up with this hypothetical source to explain the synoptics. Mark Goodacre, a specialist in this area, doesn’t think Q is coherent. Neither does David Alan Black for different reasons. Since I’m not terribly concerned with the overall idea, I haven’t gone into with a lot of depth.

    I wish they’d validate or not that alleged Mark fragment Wallace mentioned earlier. The longer it takes, the more skeptical I am becoming.

    C14 dating and some experts eyeballing that thing shouldn’t take this long should it?
