On the Q Source

From Raymond Brown's Introduction to the New Testament, quoting JP Meier's A Marginal Jew:

A bit abrupt but worthy of reflection is the proposal of J.P. Meier, Marginal 2.178, that every morning exegetes should repeat, "Q is a hypothetical document whose exact extension, wording, originating community, strata, and stages of composition cannot be known."
