Early Christianity and Early Christianities

A new book examines the early apocryphal texts and concludes that “orthodoxy” — a mainstream, “Great Church” — was well established very early on. I have not yet read the book (only this Boston Globe review), but it seems a welcome counterforce to the tsunami of nonsense that hit pop culture with the Gospel of Judas.

Whenever you hear someone speak of early “Christianities,” just reach for your Revolver. (It’s better to listen to the Beatles’ greatest album than to that claptrap.)

Hat tip: Paleojudaica.

Since I’ve developed a Rubber Soul, nonsense like the “Gospel of Judas” just bounces right off me…
