Connecting Gospels

Beyond the Canonical/Non-Canonical Divide

Edited by Francis Watson and Sarah Parkhouse

  • Shows how gospels on both sides of the canonical/non-canonical boundary share broadly similar concerns, however differently they may express them
  • Contributors take a theme from a marginalized or 'non-canonical' gospel, and compare it with a 'canonical' treatment of that same theme
  • Considers where the gospel story begins; the role of women disciples; Jesus and Judaism; the nature and implications of Jesus' resurrection; and the end of the world and the fate of the individual soul
  • Features passages quoted in both original language and translation
