The Q Testament
Xulon Press, 2007 - 272 pages
Read all the words of Jesus in the New Testament in half the time! Draw closer to him! What is it? It's the QT - it's all about Jesus. It's all about him: from the Gospels to Revelations in one small book. It combines traditional red- letter sayings in your bible, and the Q Hypothesis, with minimal editorial summations. "Q" is a German word (Quelle), which means source. Jesus is the source! Critical scholars hypothesize that the oral sayings of Jesus: miracles, healings, preaching, parables, and ethical lessons, and so on, were first written down in a collection, before the discovery of the four Gospels. Furthermore, they postulate Mark is the oldest; Matthew and Luke used Mark as their source; and in addition to Mark-Matthew and Luke drew on the so-called Q document.
