Subject: [gmark] Mark without Q
I am curious as to why Mark did not include the Q material we observe in
Matthew and Luke. Most scholars write with the assumption that Mark did
use the Q material because it was not available to him. But what if it
available to Mark and what if he rejected it?
There are the obvious distinctions between the Gospel of Mark and the
of Matthew and Luke that may be of note.
Matthew and Luke are positive about Peter and the Disciples
Matthew and Like include the Q Material in their compositions.
Mark is very pessimistic about the disciples from Galilee
Mark does not include the Q community's writings in his
Is there a connection? Maybe Q is a compostion of sayings from one of
Galilean communities that were founded on one of the disciples? Maybe
why it was rejected by Mark rather than unknown to Mark? Any suggestions
pursuit of this line of thought of Q being a Galilean document and or
rejecting Galilean thought and/or the Galilean community from the
disciples? Any suggestions for why Mark did not use Q?
