The Gospel of Thomas Debate in Kansas City

Stephen Patterson, noted in the previous post, and Craig Evans engaged in debate on the Gospel of Thomas at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary here in Kansas City on Friday evening, March 13. Evans finds little or no early or authentic material in the gospel, while Patterson is open to new insights into the life of Jesus through the study of Thomas. For a brief report on the debate, see this brief summary in the Baptist Press.

For additional discussion of the Gospel of Thomas see the work of April DeConick and check her blog for various archived posts on the Gospel of Thomas at the Forbidden Gospels Blog.
