      Why not quote both versions of a Q pericope where the Matt & Luke versions
      are quite different and ask themwhich of these is closer to Jesus's original
      words. Then either quote a GoT logion which seems more primitive than the
      synoptic version, or, better still, quote one of the acceptably orthodox and
      authentic-sounding unparalleled GoT parables.

      30 seconds is up.

      You could have told them that Q *is* in the Nt.

      The first chapter of Steve Davies' NT fundamentals has some rather forceful
      arguments meant to make source criticism acceptable to proponents of the
      divine inspiration of the NT.
