The Infancy Gospels of James and Thomas
Ronald F. Hock
Two infancy gospels reflect the early Christian interest in how Jesus was born and raised. The Infancy Gospel of James narrates the story of Mary, mother of Jesus—her birth, infancy and childhood, up to her pregnancy. The Infancy Gospel of Thomas recounts stories depicting Jesus as a petulant child prodigy. Featuring the acclaimed Scholars Version translation side-by-side with the original Greek texts, this dual language edition makes the infancy gospels readily available and truly accessible for the first time ever.
