Books Info:

The Oxyrhynchus Logia free pdf Excerpt from The Oxyrhynchus Logia: And the Apocryphal Gospels A leaflet of papyrus, found on the site of Oxyrhynchus, in Egypt, in the winter of 1896-7, contains the few short Greek sayings which are the subject of this essay. Their discoverers and first editors, the two Oxford scholars Mr. Grenfell and Mr. Hunt, called them in the same language Logia, that is oracles (Rom. iii. 2), of Jesus. The fragment has the appearance of having belonged to a small manual, containing sayings detached from their contexts in some larger and more costly Codex or Codices and fitted compactly together by a compiler, who changed a word here and there, and prefixed the formula of citation Saith Jesus to successive paragraphs. The compositeness of the Logiographer's sections is well illustrated by Logion VII, on the city that 'can neither fall nor be hid, ' which blends the saying, 'A city set on a hill cannot be hid, ' with the parable of the house which 'fell not- for it was founded upon the rock.' Others of the Logia, likewise duplex, which cannot be traced back to the New Testament, may have been derived from one or from more than one of the lost documents of Christian antiquity, such as the Gospel according to the Egyptians, which some suppose to have contained all the sayings on the papyrus.
