Synoptic Problem: Final Resolution
And the undoing of “Q” (Quelle)
Codex W (Washingtonensis Codex, Washington Codex, Freer Gospels, Codex W) was earlier mistakenly dated as 300’s-400’s by unscientific, highly subjective guesses. Speculative and subjective Date Assignment was on basis of Script Style and/or preconceived and unscientific notions concerning what an “Original” might reflect.
The style of Uncial Greek script used within Codex W was used from even before time of Christ, and until at least 400's A.D. It is just as proper to say that it could be from the First Christian Century as it would be to guess that it could be of a later century. --But the facts are that we don't have to guess. The scribe named Barnabas dated his penmanship as within First Century A. D., as shown and told in Dr. Woodard's book.
Codex W. is composed of Four Jewish Christian Gospels, with Aramaic and Greek dating, ranging from 37-74 AD, complete with Aramaic Seals!
Previous scholars also made incredibly inaccurate and inadequate assessment that this Codex gives no indication of dates. Those analysts overlooked what are readily recognizable, even though Covert, multiplicity of First Century AD Aramaic alphanumeric dating symbols --often combined with Greek alphanumeric dating symbols-- of specific dates for each Manuscript within that Bound Collector’s Edition of First Century AD Gospels.

Those earlier fellows failed additionally to recognize that each of these Gospels tells the exact year of Jesus’ Birth (750 AUC, which PROBABLY --there is room for some debate-- equates to our 4 BC) as well as the exact year of Jesus’ Crucifixion (784 AUC, Our 31 AD). No longer is it necessary to speculate about any of these matters.
This Codex enables us to know precisely when, where, and by whom each of these Four Gospel manuscripts were penned, as well as where and when some slight changes and additions to long-lasting sheepskin parchment original manuscripts were made.
The Four Gospels Comprising what I call Codex W were, and yet are, ONE SET of First Century AD, Aramaic Annotated, Stamped, Sealed, and Signed Copies of Apostolic Era Manuscripts. I do not say that they are "The Originals," but I do say that they are ONE SET of Aramaic Sealed and Dated Gospel Namesake Endorsed Originals.
The duo of John Mark and Scribe Barnabas were close associates not only with each other, but also of Levi Matthew. --And after Paul's death, also with Luke. Furthermore, Barnabas was THE PRIMARY SCRIBE for, SEQUENTIALLY, Levi Matthew, JOHN, JOHN Mark, And Luke. --Except that John had an earlier scribe prior to Barnabas.
No wonder the so-called "Synoptic Gospels are so much alike! After 37 A.D. Greek Gospel of Matthew had already become sacrosanct via widespread distribution of it among Jewish and Hellenistic Jewish Christians during A.D. 37-67, John Mark and Barnabas used one of Matthew's Manuscripts for somewhat of a condensation that was to become "Mark," except that in many places some expansions of details for Mark's Gospel were entered --ostensibly, per church history--, from some of Peter's personal recollections. In the next sequential development, Luke used the long accepted Matthean Gospel, and the more recently crafted Markan Gospel, and some other sources, to craft his great Gospel Epic. --And Levi Matthew, John Mark, and Luke all used Barnabas as their trusted scribe.
No "Q" was needed, and indeed "Q" never existed and has been merely a figment of some misguided imaginations during past 100 plus years.
Codex W manuscripts even include on the Wooden Covers, First Century AD Jewish Christian Painted Representations of Matthew, John, Luke, and Mark (in that order). I believe that Barnabas painted those images noy later than 74 A.D.
Luke’s Aramaic Seal from 74-75 AD, featured on this page, is just one of many scores of First Century AD Aramaic Entries I have found upon Codex W: Old and Holy.
The effect of my discoveries about this previously misdated Set of First Century AD Gospel Originals is sounding the death knell for, and is indeed mercifully and humanly killing, that Figment of Imagination known as “Q.” It had been incorrectly assumed, contrary to best evidences within Church History, and even contrary to Biblical Evidences, that a “more simple” Gospel of Mark was first written. Matthew and Luke then supposedly came along, each independently using Mark’s Earlier Gospel, to “Expand and Enhance” in keeping with later, “more advanced” Church Conceptions and Liturgies.
This Four Gospel set was bound into one book in AD 96. It has painted wooden covers, deriving from skillful Jewish Christian Artists. Their symbolic art includes cleverly interwoven Greek, Aramaic, and Latin alphabetic and Numeric Data. Pictured on those painted wooden covers are what very likely are accurate representations of the Gospel Namesakes.
