      Thank you for sharing with us Stein's five main arguments for Q
      [Stein 1992: 790-91]. These five arguments are more nuanced than
      their titles suggest and are more fully developed in Stein's own
      introduction [Stein 1987: 91-103], which closely tracks Fitzmyer's
      exposition of this issue [Fitzmyer 1970: 147-56].

      Subsequent to this article, Tuckett has written a chapter on the
      existence of Q, in which he offer four reasons: "Matthew's Additions
      to Mark" (cf. nos. 1 and 5 above); "Order" (cf. nos. 2 and 4);
      "Greater Originality" (cf. no. 4 above); and "Doublets" [Tuckett
      1996: 7-11].

      Previously, Kümmel offered reasons nos. 2, 1, and 4 [Kümmel 1965/66:
      *50], and Streeter only offered reasons nos. 1 and 4 [Streeter
      1924: 183]. Even prior to Streeter, Papias' testimony was thought
      to support Q, but this argument has been largely abandoned.
