Selected Studies from Novum Testamentum
Editor: David Orton
When Stewart Petrie wrote in 1959 that 'the whole Synoptic question should be thrown back into the melting-pot', he was responding to what he saw as the fanciful and mutually contradictory attempts to solve a problem that had occupied New Testament scholars from the earliest days of biblical criticism. The 'Q' solution obscured more than it clarified, since there was no scholarly agreement on its extent, even on the assumption of its erstwhile existence.
By means of its 'snap-shot' articles from the generation following Petrie’s whimsical comments, this collection makes it possible to follow the course of the discussion in the subsequent forty years. Now, after a generation of study by many of the best scholarly minds, a consensus of sorts is beginning to emerge. Nonetheless, as Sharon Mattila’s recent article shows, the question is 'A Problem Still Cloude', and the debate very much alive.

We will therefore conclude with reflections on the significance of the memory factor in the
