What about the Q Gospel? Does this represent a problem for the reliability of the canonical Gospels?

    It’s impossible that the Bible is the word of God bc in the OT it says you can beat your slave as long as he/she isn’t bedridden for more than two days.

    In the beginning God did not create the heavens (plural) and the earth! In the beginning God created the heaven (singular) and the earth:
    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

    They rely with the Holy Spirit God who effused the truth into the mouths of the four Evangelists untill their death for martyrdom to testify the truth Himself. Jesus Christ God.

    Galatians 1: 6 I am astonished that you have so quickly turned away from the One Who called you into the love of Messiah, to another message;7 Not that there is any other glad tidings, just that there are some who trouble you, and are trying to pervert the message of the Messiah.8 But even if we, or a malak from heaven, should preach a +message other than what we preached to you: May he be accursed!9 As we have already said, so I now say again: If any man preaches any message to you contrary to or different from what you have received from us: May he be accursed!10 So now, who am I trying to please man, or Father YAHweh? Do I seek to be a man-pleaser? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of the Messiah! 11 But I point out to you, brothers, that the message preached by me is not something any man invented.12 For I neither received it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Father YAHweh's Resurrected Son. May Father YAHweh bless your understanding.

    Hi, God here. While is true that my beloved Hebrews were not expecting a crucified messiah, and though I could have been god-level clear at least on that poignant issue, I hope that this time my beloved Son delivers an unambiguous flawless Revelation, for a change. Totally god-level this time! So, this time I will gather few fishermen and peasants instead of prophets, to be the sole "independent sources" of oral tradition, that will be eventually written down, compiled, and selected from many other similar apocryphal tales.
    Not the devoted priests nor the civilized Romans, not hundred of thousands nor the whole world as witnesses, not staying forever on Earth nor leaving a permanent open line to me, but tales written by humans about my mighty powers. In soon-to-be-dead languages, with lost original sources.
    Supernaturally perfect! Back to sleep!

    If someone said they knew someone who said they saw someone walk on water, or come back to life, I wouldn't be convinced…and even less so if someone gave this account 2000 years ago. But that's probably due to the same anti-supernatural bias that extends to elves, leprechauns and dragons. Jesus was brilliant, but…a virgin birth…really? You do realize that these people attributed everything to supernatural causes. They were unsophisticated (unlike the Greeks) and presented the bucket and the fishing net as their greatest technological achievements. Not sure why respect for the wisdom of Jesus requires a belief in supernatural nonsense.

    The heaven (space)
    And the earth (matter)

    Correct me if I missed something:)

    Proverbs 30:4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

    Jeremiah 23:26-27 How long will this be in the mind of the prophets who prophesy lies, even the prophets of the deceit of their own mind? 27 who intend to cause My people to forget My name by the dreams they tell one another, just like their ancestors forgot My name due to Baal [Lord] worship.

    Hosea 2:13-16 I’ll come and punish her for the times when she burned incense to the Baals, when she adorned herself with her rings and jewelry, and chased her lovers, and forgot Me”, declares Yehovah. … 16 Yehovah says, “When that day comes, you’ll call Me Husband [Ishi] and you will never again call Me ‘Lord’ [Baali]!

    Revelation 3:8-9 I know your works. Look, I have put an open door in front of you that no one can shut, because you have a little strength and you’ve obeyed My Word and haven’t denied My name! 9 I have something for those of the cabal of Satan who claim to be Jews and arent, but lie, I’ll make them come and worship before your feet, and realize that I have loved you!

    Romans 10:13 Whoever calls on YHVH’s name will Live!

    The name ‘Jesus’ is never used in the original first edition 1611 King James Version of the Bible. Nor for that matter are the names: ‘Jehovah’ ‘Judah’ ‘Joseph ‘Jacob’ ‘Jerusalem’ ‘John’ or ‘Joshua’ found in the original 1611 KJV. You can still buy copies of the original versions.

    What is always found in the ‘real’ KJV is ‘Iesus’ (ee-ay-sooce’), the shortened Aramaic (and Hebrew) equivalent of the Hebrew name ‘Yehoshua’.

    ‘Yehoshua’ is found 218 times in the Tanak (Old Testament). The revised translators renamed him ‘Joshua’.

    Closely related to the Hebrew ‘Yehoshua’ (Jesus) is ‘Yehovah’ (Yeh-ho-vaw’), His Father’s name.

    ‘Yehovah’ appears in the revised KJV as ‘LORD’. It should have appeared in the revised KJV that most of us are familiar with 6,519 times, but instead the translators substituted His the word ‘LORD’ 6,510 times, GOD 4 times, Jehovah 4 times, and one odd translation. 

    The 'lords' prayer more correctly Yahovahs Prayer or ABBA Fathers Prayer is Heaveny father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name Yahovah, Thy kingdom come..

    For Jesus to be an actual name in Hebrew, it would need to be spelled in Hebrew as Yod-Hey-Shin-Vav-Ayin. Unfortunately for it’s supporters, this name can not be found anywhere in the Hebrew Scriptures. What you will find in the Hebrew Scriptures is Yehoshua which is written in the Hebrew as Yod-Hey-Vav-Shin-Ayin or Yod-Hey-Vav-Shin-Vav-Ayin, or the shortened form Yeshua and 3443) which is written in the Hebrew as Yod-Shin-Vav-Ayin (YHVH/YHWH)

    Yehoshua is usually translated as “Jesus”, but He was really named Yehoshua; that is what His family, friends and followers called Him. While not in any way an eternal life issue, if you claim to love Him, shouldn’t you at least know and use His true name? What if your name was Alex and everyone called you Greg, dont we correct someone when they say our names wrong or call us by the wrong name? Should a name be changed just because it's used in a different language or erased with a title/discripter? Shouldn't we respect a name that is given, especially if it's the saviors and our creators.

    What? The author of Luke says he interviewed eyewitnesses?
    Um… no. The author just says that they "carefully investigated everything". They never cites their sources, never claim to have eyewitness testimony, never claim to be an eyewitness themselves, and even according to tradition, were not an eyewitness of the events described.

    Belief in the supernatural only gets you as far as deism. If the Bible was so convincing then all intelligent people of the world would be flocking to Christianity. This is not the case. The more we study the Bible, its claims, its history, its archaeology, the more we can see that it's not what it claims to be. You can see this for yourself if you haven't made your mind up about it before studying it. It's all right to consider Frank's point of view as long as you consider Bart Ehrmans as well. Don't be deceived by bad ideas.

    Gospels were made up by people who believed exorcism is the solution for mental illness, & blood sacrifice protects against unknown diseases by keeping an imaginary God happy & an imaginary Satan away.

    Wonder how many non-believers will click on this because "Q" is in the title?

    This is interesting. Even if the Synoptic Gospels had an earlier common source, that still doesn't discredit what they write. As Turek notes, most of these criticisms of the Gospels come down to one thing: anti-supernatural bias 🙂

    Just to clarify, "q" comes from quelle, and Mark is not said to make use of it. Matthew is supposedly Mark + Q + Matthew, while Luke is Mark + Q + Luke.

    Good job Frank, "Q" has about as much credibility as the Mormon Doctrine, with the golden tablets and "special" eyeglasses
