The Gospels You Don't Know: Evaluating the Gospels of Thomas and Judas

Description

In recent years there has been a surge of interest in the apocryphal gospels, particularly the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Judas. The church, therefore, must be equipped to respond to questions about them and the potential challenges they pose to the historic biblical canon. In this talk, the speaker provides an overview of Thomas and Judas. What portions of the texts do we have? What is in them? How can we contrast the content of authentic and inauthentic biblical texts?
