Alongside the four canonical Gospels, competing accounts of Jesus’s life emerged, which we now call “apocryphal.” Here, discover the Gospel of Peter, which directly portrays the Resurrection, and the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, which recounts events of Jesus’s childhood. Finally, encounter Gnostic Christianity in the Gospel of Thomas, containing mystical sayings of Jesus.
