Abstract Aphrahat, the Persian Sage (d. ca. 350 CE), is frequently referenced as a witness for the use of the pseudepigraphic text known as 3 Corinthians as authoritative Scripture in the early Syriac tradition. However, this claim is yet to be fully substantiated by means of a close comparison of the texts in question. The present article offers a textual analysis of Aphrahat’s alleged citations of 3 Cor in order to demonstrate that Aphrahat did in fact cite this text as the authoritative words of Paul. The article also provides broader observations concerning the impact of the language and thought of 3 Cor on Aphrahat’s writings.
