Chapter Summary

The author does not propose to look back over the history of Q studies. He plans to chart from present positions the likely way ahead for scholarly discourse, although necessarily such projections do not emerge from a void. The goal of the International Q Project has been to produce a critical reconstruction of the text of Q. The focus in innovative Q research is now being shared between the German-speaking and English-speaking worlds. Q is increasingly seen by scholars in the field as a "real" document, not simply a hypothetical construction. The author feels that a radical enlargement of the extent of Q might also materially affect estimates of its genre. The connection between the Jesus of Q and the historical Jesus may indeed be far from simple, despite the relatively early tradition which Q presents. The field of Q studies therefore faces an impressive agenda.
