Original Essay


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"After reading the Apocryphon of James, also known as the Gospel of James, I am intrigued by the way that the text seems to contain both significant parallels and unique dissimilarities to the canonical gospels found in the New Testament. Although there is not a scholarly consensus in regards to an explanation for these apparent contradictions within the document, the historical background surrounding the written account seems to offer some indication of the original author’s motivations and intentions in writing it."
