5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh look at Jesus without the theological overlay., 20 Jun 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lost Gospel Q: The Original Sayings of Jesus (Paperback)
This short book gives the text of the additional material used by Matthew and Luke to include more of the teachings of Jesus as they rework the text of Mark to produce their own, longer writings. It is thought that this source circulated independently before being lost as a separate collection of teachings. This text has been derived by subtraction and deduction from the three synoptic gospels. It makes very interesting reading and gives a fresh portrait of Jesus without narrative and theological overlay added by each of the gospel authors. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Serious Book, 5 April 2002
By A Customer
The arguments for the existence of THE LOST GOSPEL Q put forth by Marcus Borg in the Preface are the most interesting and provocative part of this book. It is easy to understand why the work of the Jesus Seminar is challenged by skeptics. However, I do think it is important not to dismiss it too quickly before it receives the attention and scrutiny it deserves. THE LOST GOSPEL Q is a serious attempt to shed light on the historical Jesus.
