Abstract In his influential 1987 monograph, Kloppenborg identified three layers in the Sayings Gospel Q: the "formative stratum" (or Q¹), the "main redaction" (or Q²), and the "final recension" (or Q³). He ascribed the cluster of sayings in Q 12:39–59 to the main redaction. Within this cluster appears the parable of the loyal and wise slave (Q 12:42–46). In my view, some portions of this parable actually originate with the formative stratum. The aim of the current article is to reconsider the redactional make-up of this parable by appealing to Kloppenborg’s own criteria for distinguishing between Q1 and Q2, including those of "characteristic forms", "characteristic motifs" and "implied audience".
