Is Q the Didache?

Is Q the Didache? June 19, 2015

Alan Garrow has shared a number of videos arguing that the Didache is the source of the Q material. I have not yet had a chance to watch all of them, but I seem to recall having come across this argument before, and having found it problematic because of the similarities between the Didache and Matthew’s versions of material, in instances in which Luke’s more succinct versions are more likely to be original. But I still wanted to spread the word about them, and would be eager to see this possibility explored in detail in a scholarly article or monograph, or even in a series of blog posts that go into more detail.
