Excerpt: ...all passages assigned to any form of Q will constitute the total content of Q, so far as it is contained in both Matthew and Luke.
This total content will be somewhat larger than the content that could be assigned to Q without the hypothesis of QMt and QLk, since by this hypothesis many sections will be sufficiently alike to be assigned to Q (QMt and QLk) which otherwise would have to be ascribed to different sources.1 1 Effort will be made later to determine the extent of QMt and QLk by themselves. 1 The writer began the following examination with the intention of assigning to Q only, and rejecting all passages not showing sufficient agreement to warrant such assignment.
