Abstract: We derive a family of reproducing kernels for the q-Jacobi polynomials $ \Phi _n^{(\alpha ,\beta )}(x){ = _2}{\Phi _1}({q^{ - n}},{q^{n - 1 + \beta }};{q^\alpha };q,qx)$. This is achieved by proving that the polynomials $ \Phi _n^{(\alpha ,\beta )}(x)$ satisfy a discrete Fredholm integral equation of the second kind with a positive symmetric kernel, then applying Mercer's theorem.
