Extent of Q

My own study of Matthew's and Luke's gospels has led me to conclude that we have greatly underestimated the extent of Q. It is quite likely that Matthew only includes about half of Q, especially considering that Matthew is not following Q's order as he is Mark's. It is also likely that Luke has left out portions of Q, since Luke leaves out significant portions of Mark. (See the Statistics page for evidence details on how careful Matthew and Luke are in copying Q.) Can we discover Q passages in Matthew's unique material and in Luke's unique material? Here are a few papers I have written arguing that we can:

Over the next few months I will be compiling more data and working through passages that may be from Q, and I will post that information here.
