HOWES, Llewellyn. 'Cut in two', Part 1: Exposing the Seam in Q 12:42-46. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.1, pp. 01-05. ISSN 2072-8050. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v71i1.2910.
This publication argues for the existence of a seam between verses 44 and 45 of the parable in Q 12:42-46. In the process, a case is also made for identifying the second half of the parable (Q 12:45-46) as a redactional addition to a more original first half (Q 12:42-44). The arguments that make up this article form the basis for a follow-up article on the redaction of Q 12:42-46 within the context of the Sayings Gospel as a whole.
