Chapter Summary

Those amongst us who do not want to side with the uncommitted and still believe that there are good reasons to assign to Q the three sayings in Luke 16:16-18 and their parallel in Matt. 5:18, 32; 11:12-13 face a triple challenge. First they have to reconstruct a text that is transmitted in quite different forms by Luke and by Matthew. They also have to produce an explanation for each of the sayings on level of Q, and for those who would argue that Q 16:16-18 already formed some sort of unity in Q there is the additional problem of making sense of the whole. And then they have to account for Luke's and Matthew's redaction. This chapter focuses on one specific problem, that of the identification of the &t;violators of the kingdom,&t; but this gives author an opportunity to touch upon the interpretation of Q 16:16-18 as a whole.
