While I buy the evidence for Q based on parallels in Matthew and Luke that don't use Mark as a source, I find it curious that Q is often thought to be earlier than Mark. Is there evidence for this? Thanks.

It may be beneficial to cite or quote a source that has suggested Q is earlier than Mark. –  Mark Edward Jul 18 at 2:46
