Scripture This Week
On Thursday, October 23rd, at 9:00 AM, our Scripture topic will be “Another Look at the Q Document.” I will examine the work of John Kloppenborg, one of the top scholars in the study of the Q Document. I will look at such issues as ”What is Q, Efforts at Resurrecting Q, the Theology of Q, and Q’s Use by Matthew and Luke.” I will make comparisons with the Q Document, the Gospel of Mark, and the Apocryphal Gospel of Thomas. I will examine Q’s similarities with the Wisdom literature and how the Epistle of James employed Q, etc. My last presentation on Q was chiefly about the history of the document. I primarily employed Benedict Viviano’s work What Are They Saying About Q? Paulist Press has a fine series of What Are They Saying About…? books on many Scriptural topics and individual books of the Bible.
