Noncanonical Gospels

Lecture no. 9 from the course: The New Testament

 Noncanonical Gospels

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

More than 20 Gospels survive that did not make it into the New Testament. Most are highly legendary and use earlier written accounts as sources. They can be categorized as either narrative or "sayings" Gospels. In this lecture, you will examine examples of each, including one that is among the most exciting archaeological finds of modern times: the "Gnostic" Gospel of Thomas unearthed at Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1947.
