Chapter Summary

The basic assumption of Markan priority is the guiding methodology used by the author in this chapter. The possibility that a Sondergut passage may stem from Q is not denied but, it is seen as too uncertain to be reckoned with. The author states that the contributors to the Louvain Colloquium in 1981 were mainly interested in the composition of Q and pre-Q collections, i.e., the "formation" of Q rather than the expansion of its extent with Sondergut passages. The phenomenon of the minor agreements in triple-tradition passages is also cited as evidence for Q. The minor agreements also have their bearing on the Q hypothesis. In a more drastic way the minor agreements are used as an argument against the very existence of Q by M.D.Goulder. The author comments that it is hardly conceivable that the total number of explained agreements could become unexplainable".
