In Ancient Apocryphal Gospels, a volume from WJK Press' Interpretation series, Markus Blockmeuhl offers a sympathetic account of the ancient apocryphal gospel writings, showing their place within the reception history and formation of what was to become the canonical fourfold gospel.

Bockmuehl begins by helping readers understand the early history behind these noncanonical Gospels before going on to examine dozens of specific apocryphal texts. He explores the complex oral and intertextual relationships between the noncanonical and canonical Gospels, maintaining that it is legitimate and instructive to read the apocryphal writings as an engagement with the person of Jesus that both presupposes and supplements the canonical narrative outline. Appropriate for pastors and nonspecialists, this work offers a fuller understanding of these writings and their significance for biblical interpretation in the church.

About the Series

In addition to being one of the finest commentaries on the market today, WJK press' Interpretation series, with the release of its new thematic oriented commentaries, has also become, arguably, the most dynamic. Moving beyond commentaries that focus on entire books of the Bible, Interpretation will now focus on 'enduring passages' of Scripture seeking to garner not only a critical understanding of a given passage in its original context and historical setting, but also seeking to construct and articulate a theology out of that is relevant for our modern world.
