NEW TESTAMENT APOCRYPHAL WORKS. This work shows how the creation of the biblical canon that we now take for granted excluded many important, informative and illuminating writings about the life, death and teachings of Jesus. Today, we take the texts of the New Testament as if they are set in stone. But there was much discussion and disagreement among early Christians about what writings should be included, what rejected - often for reasons more political than religious. This groundbreaking book will set the record straight. Here are texts newly translated from their original Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Slavonic and Coptic and accompanied by clear, concise explanations of their origins and relevance. Together, they form a supplement to the New Testament that will set the record straight. No text of any consequence from the earlier period relating to the historical Jesus has been omitted. They provide one last, unexpected window onto his life and teachings.
