I was off on the Peter/ Paul visit.

Here is a short synopsis of the visits:

My thought on Q source is that it was probably just a culmination of the oral traditions at the time. I doubt it was ever even written down. Thus why the synoptic gospels are close but not always exact.

Very good point, and possibly why Luke wrote, "these accounts come down to us through the generations," rather than "I read a gospel that has since gone missing."

I find it a bit ironic that the Bible is a great example of how entities mutate, get selected, and develop variations with time. It's no wonder that one of Darwin's inspirations was the emerging study of the evolution of language, although I don't think he had Bible stories in mind.

Can you expand on this?


No. I know a couple of names but that would not be enough for you. I don't have sources for the claim by others that there are more and more scholars taking the theory seriously but that is what I have read. If I can find it again I will post it.
