David Wenham lectures in Texas

Oxford prof defends authority of "most famous sermon of all time"

It's nice to see a some Q scepticism in here:
Wenham said he doubts the existence of "Q", the supposed mystery source of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, much speculated upon by biblical scholars. However, he said, there was a large amount of reliable "oral tradition" in the early church about the sayings of Jesus. He said that the Gospel writers, as well as the writers of the epistles like Peter and Paul, would have drawn on this shared tradition when they wrote.
