The Lost Gospel
The Book of Q & Christian OriginsBook - 1993 | 1st ed
This collection of Jesus' sayings, compiled by his followers during his lifetime, became the prime source for the New Testament Gospels. Once lost, it was reconstructed through a century of scholarship. In his own translation, Mack explains how the text of Q was determined and explores the implications of the discovery that Jesus was mythologized into the savior of Christianity by the New Testament Gospels.
