The Acts of Thomas

Lecture no. 14 from the course: Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication

 The Acts of Thomas

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Apocryphal Acts resembled the ancient romances (novels). While the Christian Acts use many of these conventions, their goal is to counteract the views that the romances embraced.

A very humorous overview of the Acts Of Thomas. I love how Ehrman presents the material.
