Was there a long-lost source for the Gospels, commonly known as “Q”? Could the Gospels have been written from the common knowledge of eyewitnesses? In this interview with Melissa Dougherty, J. Warner discusses how the gospels were transmitted and the evidence we would need to believe in the existence of a “Q” document.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
