So then if there was something written, it's more plausible that it was the mysterious Q, not Matthew.
Why do you think that?

If Matthew and Luke share some passages with eachother (Q), but not some other passages (like one genealogy covering Jesus' mother's side and another covering the father's side), how does this make it more plausible that Luke did not use Matthew, but rather a written Q source?

It seems most likely to me that since Matthew was written before Luke and Luke talks about relying on a previous compilation, that Matthew was a source that he got the Q passages from. But for some differences, he had his own reasons for why he didn't use them. For example, he might choose to set his genealogy along a different parental line for a good reason, such as if he wanted to emphasize Jesus' paternal trace to King David, since kingship passed through the paternal line.

I see no persuasive reason why differences between Matthew and Luke mean that Luke did not use Matthew as a source, since Luke could have used it as a base but then made corrections or else preferred to say something different on some subject. Rather, my best guess is that Matthew was Luke's source. The church fathers did not mention a Q source, but rather suggested that Matthew's gospel was written first.

Dominika, can you please delete my last post?

You guys are a bunch of punks.  I had all four wisdom teeth pulled out in one shot too, with stitches, the whole nine.  Plus, one of them crumbled apart and the doc really had to do some slashing and digging to root out the remains.  Big deal.  I ate eggs and Ensure shakes for a week - and ice cream (no infection) - and in no time at all I was back on normal food.  Just keep the ice pack on your face, rinse the wounds out with that syringe thing and salt water, stay away from chewy stuff and rice type stuff that can get stuck in there, and you'll be back on your feet in no time.  I went to work two days after the surgery.  No big deal.

Oh, and go to an oral surgeon, not a regular dentist, if you have any choice at all.

Been to a dentist today. Had 2 teeth removed. Not funny. At all.
Two teeth at the same time: I can't believe you have the ability to actually type with all the swelling & pain.  I know you will feel even worse tomorrow & I have only had one tooth pulled at a time.  Except for when I had my 4 wisdom teeth out all together-but in a hospital with general anesthetic so I was out cold.

My stitches were meant to be dissolved, so I didn't need to have them removed.

I had one that never did. It felt weird (though not bad) when it busted out a couple of years later.

There is one major problem with the idea that Luke copied off of Matthew that I can think of at the moment:  genealogy.
Do they contradict each other?

I'm sure that Matthew's gospel was not Luke's only source. But Matthew contains the "Q passages".

Lord have mercy. Lord, please heal those victims and comfort their families.

Lord have mercy.
On Monday, there was a terrorist attack in OSU. Thank God that no one was killed or seriously hurt. Coincidentally, a few days later, today, marks the one year anniversary of the San Bernardino terrorist attack. Pray for the resilience and healing of the victims of both attacks and their families.
