Chapter Summary

Scholars who spend much of their lives working on Paul rarely venture across the street to visit those who work on Q, and vice versa. Staying with the patriarchal theme, the author thinks it is likely that the Q saying of John the Baptist about Abraham would also be heard within Judaism and early Christianity as a prediction of resurrection. Within this broad-based Q theme of future judgment and vindication, with overtones of future resurrection, there are also signs that Q regarded the raising of the dead as something that was happening in the present time as well. Luke's version of the saying (11:30) is briefer and more cryptic: Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, and in the same way the Son of Man will be a sign to this generation.
