Leuven: Peeters, 2012 pp. xxxviii + 590. Ä95
Description: The eleventh volume in the series Documenta Q is concerned with the reconstruction of the Q text behind Luke 11:39-44 par. Matt 23:1-2a, 5-7, 23, 25-28 ("Woes against the Pharisees"). The thematically related passage Q 11:46b-52 ("Woes against the Exegetes of the Law" and "Wisdomís Judgment on this Generation") is published in a separate volume. The International Q Projectís presentation of the critical text of Q 11:39-44, together with the exhaustive history of research on which it is based, will considerably enhance research on the Sayings Gospel Q, the historical Jesus and Jewish-Christian relations. The database and evaluations are expanded and revised versions of those presented and discussed at the meeting of the International Q Project in Claremont, CA 1991. Just prior to the bibliography at the conclusion of the volume the resultant critical text of Q 11:39-44 is printed. This Greek text is followed by English, German and French translations. (Lucan chapter and verse numeration is used as a convenience and a mere convention.)
