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.

Postulates that written collection of the sayings of Jesus was one of the sources used by the authors of the Gospel of Matthew and Luke and that this source is thus the earliest written material we have about Jesus.

I read this book and find very little informations, facts and proof to convince me that that Christian religion is a mythologized religion.
