Logia

Explanation

Logia: The term "logia", plural of "logion", is used variously in ancient writings and modern scholarship in reference to communications of divine origin. In pagan contexts, the principal meaning was oracles, while Jewish and Christian writings used logia in reference especially to the divinely inspired Scriptures. A famous and much-debated occurrence of the term is in the account by Papias of Hierapolis on the origins of the canonical Gospels. Since the nineteenth century, New Testament scholarship has tended to reserve the term logion for a divine saying, especially one spoken by Jesus, in contrast to narrative, and to call a collection of such sayings, as exemplified by the Gospel of Thomas, logia.
