In the age of technology, a news reporter could simply audio or video record someone they are reporting about; they would then go back to their studio and write a story based upon those recordings. Prior to this modern practice, reporters had to do it the old fashioned way; they took notes with pencil and paper; or if you go back even further, the ink and papyrus of the scribe.
Scribe was a generic term for an employment role; the cream of which went to those who could read and write at a high level: Most scribes were little more than copy machines; hence the term copyist. But there were Scribes in First Century Israel that were more specifically a political or legal assistant, or a religious Scribe (scribe is a generic word, like writer). Those with well-to-do parentage and/or family money, tended to be those who would be a Scribe, while poor folk took all the lower paying and less glorifying scribe positions, just as classism manifests, to this day: Thankfully, YHVH will put an end to it (and those who enable it) forever.
Whenever something big was/is about to happen, the reporter (or scribe) would show up on the scene to record the statements, events and so on. If they were trailing a famous person, like today's paparazzi, such as a politician or a pop star, they did so because news was/is their source of income; their livelihood; for some even their passion; and, it was safer than being a messenger.
The Q source is also referred to as the Q document, Q Gospel, or Q sayings; the Q is taken from the German Qu'elle, which simply means "source." And rightly so. People understood this in the First and Second Century; if you were a disciple of Messiah, at the time of His life and/or shortly after His Ascension (say, AD 25-95), and you had the handwritten words of Messiah Yeshua (YHVH-in-skin) in your possession, you would naturally protect those words of life, with your very life. And so it was; and so it is; and so shall it remain!
Remember that the first coming of the prophesied about Messiah was news that would far outweigh modern events such as 911, for Messiah Yeshua (Himself) was the very epoch of time, itself; we began the modern or common era, with/from His life/death. His presence on Earth was the single greatest and most important event that will occur, during the sum of human-time; humanity's big-bang!
Now imagine a predicted event that would make 911 pale by comparison: Could you even imagine that no one would report on this massive event? Not one person would take any recordings of any kind? This epoch came and went with nary a few eyewitnesses? Hardly!
Imagine a predicted terrorist attack that would kill millions of people and cause more destruction than all other terrorist events and wars that will occur on Earth, collectively and forever: Now imagine that not one reporter even shows up to the location: No pictures or videos shot; nothing recorded of the event at all. Decades later, a few folk that heard about it from their parents or grandparents, casually recalls the event from these (now) wives-tales, and then someone else records it for the sake of historical posterity. Yea, I’m not buying that either.
It is popularly postulated that the Gospels were written decades after Messiah Yeshua had ascended into Heaven; that it all came by word-of-mouth, after a generation (or 2) had passed; that the Gospels were written after the rest of the Messiah Scriptures. From this assumption, one could easily conclude that these words (the Gospels mostly) cannot be taken literally; that people are bad at recalling events that are even months old, much less decades later: Thus, the notes of Saul should be the core of doctrine. And from that we have (the demonic manifestations of) Bibliolatry and Pauline Christianity.
Wise people will think: who would have benefited most from such a presumption? Who could prosper from deception? Excellent detectives will always (and first) follow the money! Yet another cleansing of the Temple is direly needed, and we disciples of Messiah are just the servants to perform that duty. We disciples today (as in all generations; think Reformations), replicate our Master, Messiah Yeshua, and purpose to expose the monetization of YHVH in any form as pure evil, and inform the general public, publicly and if needed, by similar dramatic (but nonviolent) means (Matt 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-48).
Even though Saul of Tarsus had a personal Damascus Road encounter with the Holy Spirit – who rightly identified as Messiah Yeshua, so that Saul would know it was not satan, the god of this world, who Saul had previously been unwittingly serving (Acts 9:1-4, 5-9; 22:6-11; 26:9-14, 15-20) – this epoch in his life, did not include the written Gospels, and though Saul met a few of the eyewitness Apostles, it is still evident in his (later written) church notes that Saul had read at least some portions of the written words of Messiah Yeshua (Godspeak), perhaps from handwritten copies taken from the original Q sources themselves.
While there is no physical evidence left behind, from those scribe reporters, trailing Messiah and writing down every word that exited His mouth (with margin-notes of where/when/what He was doing), any thinking person would not believe that no reporters showed up for the greatest event of all time; that nothing came from those epochal events! We know in fact that He had multitudes who followed Him on a number of occasions; they had to hear about it from some source: Yes, they had news way back then! And it traveled as fast as the fastest animal used (there and then) for that purpose.
Sure, only the Jews, and those they told, and also those who studied the Tanakh, were perhaps the only people to know about this coming epoch (it was not globally known about then), but Tekton Messiah Yeshua stayed in that region His entire earthly life, and so, knowing about it while living in other parts of the world, would not have mattered anyway.
The Q source was real; faith plus logic reveals this to the Elect of YHVH (Heb 11:1). They were the original verbatim sources that were used to construct the rest of the documented story. Many people used them, and probably wore them out, combing over them, over and over again. Tattered from repeated use, time finished them off. But like any such work; once the notes are refined and rewritten and edited over time, the original notes are no longer necessary. Besides, people would have tried to profit from them; something Messiah Yeshua clearly opposed.
Were these original handwritten scribe notes treasured? Protected? Indeed! That is probably why they will not be found, and that's assuming they physically survived at all, into the modern era: I seriously doubt they did. Out of the countless thousands of papyrus scribed notes and stories, only a very small fraction of them survived, and only because of special circumstances, such as with the Nag Hammadi scroll library, or the Dead Sea scrolls.
Once you understand that most of the men who participated in the religion of Christianity did not have the Indwelling Holy Spirit dominating their Soul; these were not Spiritually transformed (metamorphosed) people; instead, these were Faithless-Godless-Loveless religionists (pretenders; stage actors; hypocrites), who exploited Scripture to benefit themselves in the here and now (2Co 4:1-5). The proof of that reality can be measured; again, just follow the money (Luke 16:13-15).
The Greek word is hypokrites which simply means a stage actor; a pretender and dissembler. Messiah Yeshua called the professional religionists of His time/culture that very word, and ironically (or prophetically) today, it is the Christians who again, have stages for their self-centric monologues and tithe-funded rituals. Only, unlike a stage actor who is a real person playing a fake role on stage, the Pharisees were fake people playing real roles on stage: theaters, synagogues, temples, churches or street corners. Hence, the barrage of condemnation from my Master, Messiah Yeshua. Christianity does not represent Messiah Yeshua! All of Christendom was/is the business spin-off of satan (CEO) following his cemented doom via Calvary's cross.
A religionist might feel threatened when a protagonist of academia would challenge their biblical interpretations; even the very bible itself; henceforth, this is where bibliolatry emerged. It was an attempt at empiricism; the manufactured belief that the bible was god-like (hence, the capitalization of the word, Word: John 1:1), and so, everything irregular or confusing in the scriptures would be challenged on an academic level, and of course, the pride of the religionist, forced them to seek answers from an academic standpoint: Empiricism.
Without the illumination of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, the Faithless-Godless-Loveless consumers and enablers of the religion-businesses (globally and forever), cannot see themselves as frauds and fakers, and so they pretend, and then publicly sell it all as real; prophecy fulfilled (Matt 7:13-16, 21-23). It is analogous to the fake kissing (or hugging) among the worldly masses, churched or not; it is to openly play loving (the public caring show), but cloaked in open pretense: All this stems from the kiss of Judas which was/is the affection of satan.
YHVH does not provide all the proof, to any one individual or even all within one generation; wisdom is need-to-know; there's always an X factor in everything. What the Indwelling Holy Spirit has revealed to me, is not the whole picture; it cannot be: That would give me far more power than any human (apart from Messiah Yeshua) could tame. An elderly John on Patmos was overdosed with wisdom so that he’d write the Apocalypse; he did not survive long thereafter. But his purpose was fulfilled. Being a disciple is potentially hazardous, but since this life is a blink-of-a-blink of time for us, dying prematurely while in the service of our Master, is a glorious death indeed.
But all this is to compel us to have living Faith; to force us to seek; to knock; to ponder; to pray genuinely (James 5:16). It is as if our blessed Heavenly Father is giving us something to do (something far above and beyond a dead life of mere consumerism and capitalism); compelling us to seek answers to what we do not understand, as we are able, and learning most of all, through the process, to trust YHVH completely, by accepting the things we have no answers for, and never will in this life (Hebrews 11 summarized).
