The Synoptic Problem is a question of how the first three gospels came to be written. It is as if a teacher has been given three reports and it is obvious that the authors cheated off of one another. The two longer reports look like they branch off from the shorter report but there is also material that the longer reports share than the shorter one doesn’t. Most of this common material are sayings, which leads you to believe there was a note being passed around with nothing but quotes on it, but then the teacher also finds a little bit of non-quote material as well, and so figures it must have either been on an earlier version of the short report or had been added the quotes note being passed around. That is the Two Source Hypothesis, the theory that Matthew and Luke both copied from Mark and a lost sayings source, called Q, independently.

Here is my response to the last post John Walker made at “Freedom in Orthodoxy” to my arguments, which he says will be his last. I do hope that John at least provides a few quick answers to my questions in my comment section, but if he doesn’t, he at least has spent more time debating mythicism than the majority of Biblical scholars.
