Abstract

HOWES, Llewellyn. 'Cut in two'. Part 2: Reconsidering the redaction of Q 12:42-46. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.1, pp.01-07. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v71i1.2938.

In his influential 1987 monograph, Kloppenborg identified three layers in the Sayings Gospel Q: the 'formative stratum' (or Q1), the 'main redaction' (or Q), and the 'final recension' (or Q3). He ascribed the cluster of sayings in Q 12:39-59 to the main redaction. Within this cluster appears the parable of the loyal and wise slave (Q 12:42-46). In my view, some portions of this parable actually originate with the formative stratum. The aim of the current article is to reconsider the redactional make-up of this parable by appealing to Kloppenborg's own criteria for distinguishing between Q1 and Q2, including those of 'characteristic forms', 'characteristic motifs' and 'implied audience'.
