  Apocalypse of Peter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The recovered Apocalypse of Peter or Revelation of Peter is extant in two translations of a lost original, one Greek, one Ethiopic, which diverge considerably.
The Apocalypse of Peter is framed as a vision first of heaven, and then of hell, granted to Peter, the favourite figure of the Orthodox church (as opposed to James the Just, favourite of the Jewish Christians).
The Apocalypse of Peter was eventually not accepted into the Christian canon and thus remains today among the New Testament apocrypha, though references to it attest to its once in wide circulation.

 The Development of the Canon of the New Testament - Apocalypse of Peter
The Apocalypse of Peter is best known for its lurid descriptions of the punishments of hell.
In contrast to the Revelation of John which displays the final struggle and triumph of Jesus Christ, its interest no longer lies on the person of the Redeemer, but on the situation in the after-life, on the description of different classes of sinner, on the punishment of the evil and the salvation of the righteous.

presupposes and criticizes the structures of a Great Church in process of consolidation, and the appropriation of Peter as the inaugurator of Gnosis is probably also directed against this; these points together with the controversy with other gnostics suggest placing the document at the end of the 2nd century or the beginning of the 3rd.
The view of the Gnostic community, including its relationship to Peter as its originator, is another key theme of this document.
Of considerable interest are the identity of the gnostic group to which the writing is addressed, and the stage of the controversy, between emerging orthodoxy and heresy, presupposed by the tractate.
