The basis for this study is a first century hermeneutic demonstrated by the New Testament authors as they used Old Testament references, and an observable property of the Hebrew language called 'notarikon'. 
John demonstrates a fluency in notarikon which is missed when the Septuagint is used instead of the original Hebrew texts. It can be demonstrated that John 1:1-4 is derived using these tools from the first three words of Genesis 1:1.The hermeneutic and use of notarikon eliminate the need to search for a mystical Q document to explain the so-called 'Synoptic Problem'. 
- Modern Jewish teachings concerning notarikon can not be trusted since it can be demonstrated that they are intentionally scrambled to hide references to Christ.
- The Synoptic Problem observes that Mark, Matthew and Luke refer to similar events but treat them differently. Rather than being a problem, the differences help define the methods they used to unpack "the mystery hidden from the beginning" as the apostles became more proficient in applying the hermeneutic that Jesus taught.
