Opinions on the synoptic hypothesis are divided, particularly when it comes to the question of what the shared Gospels of Matthew and Luke passed down beyond the Gospel of Mark: traditionally, “Q”. This work provides new insights into this subject: It analyzes the double tradition as a text corpus – thereby exploring not only coherence, but also a non-shared textual profile vis-à-vis the other Jesus-related traditions, above all in the Gospel of Mark. The conclusive parameters are the texts’ social categories. Behind these attributions – put into a social historical context – the author provides an original draft of identification options: hungry children of God, alternative royal messengers, unacknowledged prophets, faithful and discreet slaves as well as others.
