Quelle Erat Demonstrandum

The Jesus Blog has a poll, asking “Do You Q?” Please click through and vote! I'd also be interested to hear your thoughts on the subject here.

Mark Goodacre also discussed Q skepticism in the context of the academy on his blog recently.

It also came up in discussion of another post here, whether the quotation of a saying of Jesus in 1 Timothy 5:18, attributing it to “Scripture,” could be a quotation from Q rather than from the Gospel of Luke. Unfortunately the dating of both 1 Timothy and Luke are hard to pin down, making the direct knowledge of one by the other impossible to exclude. But it is an interesting possibility!

Finally, here's a contribution to the Ryan Gosling meme (HT Nicola Denzey Lewis on Facebook).

    My concern would be that probably only a tiny percentage of ordinary church-goers would know what we are talking about. What popular, widely-read Christian book even mentions Q?

    Me? I don’t know enough either, to vote one way or the other in the poll.

    While there are issues with Q, IMO it remains by far the most plausible solution to the Matthew-Luke shared material issue. The alternative views I’ve seen are a stretch, and that’s being generous.
