>2. The Q material is found in a different context in Luke.>This is true of the core sayings material, and it constitutes evidence
for the existence of a sayings-only source, which I have called "sQ".
But the Baptist's words and the Temptation story are in the same
context, and the Centurion's Servant comes shortly after the great
Sermon in both Matthew and Luke. Au_Luke took all three (Baptist's
words, Temptation story, Centurion's Servant) from Matthew.>>
There is an incoherency in the above response, taken as a whole. If one
admits, e.g., that the Centurion's Servant story comes to Luke from Matthew,
then it is clear from his handling of Matt 8:11-12 (removal to a totally
different context in 13:28-29) how Luke treats lengthy "sayings" material
from Matt, and this explains the relationship of Luke's "Q" material to
Matthew's without the need to hypothesize a "Q" document separate from
Matthew itself. So the fact that the "Q" material is found in a different
context in Luke does not "constitute evidence
for the existence of a sayings-only source".
