Did Justin Martyr Know the Gospel of John? | Michael J. Kruger

Justin Martyr, who wrote of “the memoirs of the apostles,” lived 100-165 AD.  In fact, here’s what he says about them:

And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things (1 Apol 67.3).
