 Does anyone know where to find this?

I just got a copy of HALLEY'S BIBLE HANDBOOK, and love it.

I was reading in the HOW WE GOT THE BIBLE section, and Halley mentions Papias, a disciple of the apostle John, writing a book called AN EXPLANATION OF THE LORD'S DISCOURSES.

I have looked online but cannot find a copy of this document. I imagine it would shine some light on the Gospels. It would seem to me that this document should be widely circulated, but I cannot find it.

 Re: Does anyone know where to find this?

Here's a link to some info on [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papias]Papias[/url]. It appears his book has been lost, all that is left is a few fragments that have been quoted by other writers. Also, there appears to be some question as to whether he was in contact with the Apostle John or someone who was called the presbyter John.

In Christ,

Ron
