RE: [Synoptic-L] What is the early evidence for Luke chapters 1-3?
- As well as Justin Apol. 34, J.M.Creed cites Dial. 78, 88,
100, 103, 105 and 106 in a footnote to the dating section
in the intro to his commentary on Luke, where he lists
passages from Luke 1-3 (and from later) as used by Justin.
Quite a bit later, of course, we have p75 and p4
see NA 27 pp 684 & 688, both have bits of Luke 1-3.

Who buy it ?
