Re: [John_Lit] another lost Gospel
- Dear John,
Some others already expressed uncertainty in regard to some other material
in this long file you posted. What is the source of this information, and
how reliable do you think it is?

The following is a synopsis of M-E Boismard, LE DIATESSARON: DE TATIEN A
JUSTIN, Gabalda, Paris, 1992, the most important book on this text
published so far,
-- Boismard on the Pepys Gospel Harmony (Jul 29, 2000),
Boismard thinks it is a very important text, and may represent a
reasonably good witness to the Gospel Harmony as used by Justin Martyr.
Of course soon my new book is coming out where I'm arguing at some length
that the source of Pepys document was earlier than all four canonical
gospels in their present form.
