Yale Open Course: New Testament 8

The eighth lecture is about the Gospel of Thomas.

  • Tradition says that Thomas brought Christianity to India.
  • Most scholars think it was written in the early second century
  • Some sayings within it might be earlier than the same sayings in the synoptic gospels
  • Proto-Orthodox means the type of early beliefs that eventually became Christian orthodoxy
