[ 1] It is a hypothetical collection of the sayings and deeds of Jesus, which would have provided data from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke that they did not remove the Gospel of Mark , which was undoubtedly one of the sources of the other two . Some of the most relevant fragments of the New Testament is believed to originate in Q ( Q Reconstruction of the book by the International Q Project) : For example Beatitudes , Love the enemy, Golden Rule , The Speck and the beam test good person , Parable of the Two builders , Parable of the lost sheep .
