accept Q. Wright would come the closest, though he's
not so much anti-Q as he is a-Q. (Meaning that whether
or not Q existed has no bearing on our reconstruction
of HJ; "even if there were such a source... it could
perfectly easily have had a passion narrative", etc;
(see p 64 of JVOG)).
> What would such an approach look like?It might share commonalities with Sanders', but
perhaps something less firm. If Q didn't exist, that's
less testimony we have from pre-70. At any rate, I
think (hope) this approach will be increasingly
explored by Jesus questors in the 21st century.
