Insights into the Apocrypha

A fascinating insight into the rival religious communities of the early Christian church.

Newly translated from the original Greek, these apocryphal texts open a window to understanding the rival religious communities which coexisted with the early church. Written after the ministry of Christ and the apostles, these collections of writings contain stories about Jesus that were never part of the canonical Gospels, but nevertheless offer a fascinating glimpse into the world of the early church. These translations by Rick Brannan are perfect for use by students, scholars, and everyday Christians interested in early Christian apocrypha.

Praise for Greek Apocryphal Gospels, Fragments, and Agrapha

Rick Brannan’s edition of the Greek Apocryphal Gospels, Fragments, and Agrapha for Logos offers an important new resource that anyone interested in the early history of Christianity will want to have. . . . I expect this exciting resource will play an important role not only in providing more convenient access for scholars and students already in the habit of studying these texts, but in introducing a wider audience to them as well. Many thanks to Rick Brannan and Logos for their role in not merely providing a useful tool for the already-interested, but also helping to highlight these important texts and make them accessible to others who might not otherwise encounter them or realize their importance for our understanding of the ancient church!

—James F. McGrath, Clarence L. Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language & Literature, Butler University

The Apocryphal Gospels are significant for what they tell us about the Gospel tradition and Christian origins. These two books on Apocryphal Gospels by Rick Brannan are a great pair of resources for anyone who wants immediate access to reliable texts, translations, and introductions on their PC or tablet of non-canonical Jesus literature.

—Michael F. Bird, lecturer in theology and New Testament, Crossway College, Brisbane, Australia

The apocryphal Gospels are crucial for a thorough comprehension of Christian origins, especially historical and theological trajectories into the second century and beyond. Brannan assembles an impressive collection of apocryphal Jesus tradition in Greek and English which not only provides us with new editions of the usual suspects, but also spans significant fragmentary papyrological documents as well. Unique search capabilities enable linguistic analysis for some of the literally closest material we have to the canonical Gospels due to the digital format of these texts. Highly recommended for anyone interested in serious study of early Christianity and its literature.

—Andrew W. Pitts, adjunct professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary

    An exceptional resource for those of us who typically utilize these apocryphal texts in research projects. This Greek/English edition of some full texts and fragments is exactly the sort of resource that makes Logos my first stop for in-depth study. Definitely a must buy if this is an area of interest for you.
