• Samuel at Gilgal

    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The False Syriac Infancy Gospel

Beware of False ProphetsThe Syriac Infancy Gospel may have been compiled as early as the sixth century, and appears to be based on the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, and Protevangelium of James (both are false gospels). In the Syriac Infancy document we find stories about the miracles which took place during the Flight into Egypt; the miracles of Jesus as a boy; the diaper of Jesus that heals people; and the sweat of Jesus that cures leprosy. Jesus also meets with Judas Iscariot and the two thieves with whom He is later crucified much earlier than in the New Testament Gospels. The earliest known mention of this document was by Isho’dad of Merv, a ninth-century Syrian church father.
