Chapter Summary

The saying in Q 22:28-30 has been something of exegetical stepchild in recent Q-research. The saying has attracted more than its fair share of attention in studies of the historical Jesus. The doubts of others about the presence of the saying in Q have in part focused on the allegedly anomalous nature of some other elements of the saying. The theme of the rejected prophets is part of a broader complex of motifs in Q. The prophets who suffer violence are the messengers of Wisdom. The saying in Q 22:28-30 probably follows on the parable of the pounds in Q 19 and may well pick up the promises (and threats) of that parable. The relationship between Jesus and others is a non-reciprocal one and Jesus does have a unique role in Q. Nevertheless, it is a role of enabling others to share in his own position.

Keywords: Jesus; prophets; Q 22:28-30
