The Apocryphal Jesus

THIS FALL THE ADULT CHURCH HISTORY SUNDAY SCHOOL class will be using a highly acclaimed course from the Great Courses, Professor David Brakke’s The Apocryphal Jesus. The 27 canonical texts of the New Testament are only a tiny fraction of the many volumes written about the life of Jesus, his family, and the apostles. This additional body of literature falls under the category of “apocrypha,” meaning “hidden” or “secret,” and offers fascinating insights into the early Christian world and how different groups understood the teachings of Jesus and the first apostles. See Rich Dunn, Frank or Marcia Wolf for additional information.
