Product Description

Clarifying the relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and the Synoptics, Riley sheds fresh light on the doctrinal differences found among first-century disciples. His findings challenge and refute the idea that early Christians believed that Christ physically rose from the dead, emphasizing instead a "spiritual" resurrection. Includes non-transliterated Greek and Hebrew footnotes, indices, and bibliography. 222 pages, softcover from Fortress.

Publisher's Description

Gregory J. Riley surveys the variety of conceptions of life after death in the Greco-Roman world. Demonstrating how the oldest Christian perspective on the resurrection of Jesus was consistent with concepts of Jews and Greeks in antiquity, he shows how it is possible to see the Gospel of John as a corrective not of some lost Gnosis but of ideas preserved in the Gospel of Thomas.
