Aphrahat and non diatessaron gospel quotes
One of the arguments made by Metzger and his followers is that Syrian churches only accepted the diatessaron along with Acts and the Pauline Epistles (except Philemon), and that this was so until Rabbula and Theodoretus of Cyrrhus rooted out all copies of the diatessaron.
There are a number of problems with this (mainly to do with the term "Syrian churches"), but perhaps the simplest way to demonstrate the error , and thus get people thinking, is to show Aphrahat quoting a portion of the gospels not found in the diatessaron.
Does anyone know of one?
Additionally is there a place where one can see all of Aphrahats NT quotations?
