Lost Gospels: What are they and do they matter?

The recent announcement about the so-called "Gospel of Jesus' Wife" has, once again, ignited interest in the non-canonical gospels. People are once again asking about the Gospels of Thomas, Judas, Philip and others. Many want to know if these gospels actually exist and if they do what does it mean for the New Testament and Christian faith.

The BBC radio program All Things Considered recently produced a program that looked at this topic. The program features two of my former Durham classmates, now colleagues, Simon Gathercole and Augustine Cassidy. I think the the program is a fair, balanced look at the topic and will be helpful to many.

  1. I'd be more inclined to listen if these were former classmates from Elam or Regent. It would be exciting to hear the Pentecostal/Charismatic perspective.
