A Giant Jesus and a Walking-Talking Cross: The Fascinating Gospel of PeterMisquoting Jesus with Bart Ehrman
One of the most intriguing non-canonical Gospels to be discovered in modern times is the Gospel of Peter. Unlike the New Testament Gospels, which were written anonymously (only later to be given the titles Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), this Gospel actually claims to be written by an apostle, Jesus' own right-hand man, Peter.
The account we have is only fragmentary, an alternative version of Jesus' trial, death, and resurrection. And what an account it is, involving an actual record of Jesus emerging from his tomb at his resurrection, as tall as a mountain, followed, from the tomb by a walking-talking cross.
What is this fascinating account really all about, and why did someone write it, falsely claiming to be the disciple Peter?
