Epigram For Burton Mack, Distinguished Professor

". . . the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them

"two and two before his face into every city and place, whither

"he himself would come."

---Luke 10:1


Shucks, Burton Mack, I really cannot praise your

thesis of Q; not now, that Occam's Razor

has shaved away the multiplicity

of your assumptions, all illusory.


One statement can assert Q's history

(and blast Tubingun 's schoolyard blasphemy

away):  it was an aid to memory---

the preaching notes used by those Seventy.
