Chapter Summary

This chapter traces Q's trajectory through twentieth-century scholarship, focusing upon works which explicitly or implicitly make global proposals with respect to the redaction of Q, with a view to plotting its emergence from analyses influenced by the Kleinliteratur model and examining its present status as increasingly the object of literary-critical studies, that is, analyses which view Q as a specimen of ancient literary genres. It concludes by outlining a methodology for genre and composition criticism. Given the current climate of Q studies, a word needs to be said about how this study relates to the issue of the Two Document Hypothesis (2DH). Genre-critical analysis of Q probes for the presence of compositional conventions, in a dialectical manner.

Keywords: kleinliteratur model; twentieth-century Q scholarship; two document hypothesis
