‘Gospel’ as a Literary Title in Early Christianity and the Question of What Is (and Is not) a ‘Gospel’ in Canons of Scholarly Literature
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology.
2010 (English)In: Jesus in apokryphen Evangelienüberlieferungen / [ed] Jörg Frey und Jens Schröter, unter Mitarbeit von Jakob Späth, Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck , 2010, 1st, 399-422 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This essay begins by questioning N. T. Wright’s criteria for the classification of Gospel literature and then examines when the term “gospel” emerged as a literary designation in early Christianity.  The essay also discusses Basilides’s modest witness to gospel materials in the first half of the second century and questions whether Basilides wrote a Gospel.  It is argued that scholars should avoid arbitrary theological criteria for genre classification and defining the scholarly “canon” of early Christian Gospels.
