This year at college I wrote an essay for Church History on the Gnostic and canonical Gospels. While it’s an interest area for me, I continue to be amazed by how often it comes up in pop culture and general conversations with all kinds of people. So I thought maybe it would be useful to post the essay. The question was, “In form and content, how are the Gnostic Gospels of the second century distinct from the canonical Gospels?”
