  Gospel of Peter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A consequence of this is the potential existence of a Passion Narrative (John Dominic Crossan calls this a "Cross Gospel"), a source text that formed the basis of the passion narratives in Matthew, Luke, and Mark, as well as in Peter.
To be specific, the developed apologetic technique that is typical of the final edition of the Gospel of Matthew and of Justin Martyr, which seek to demonstrate a correspondence between prophetic predictions in the Old Testament and their detailed fulfilments in the fate of Jesus, is quite lacking in Peter.

 Gospel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Of the many gospels written in antiquity, exactly four gospels came to be accepted as part of the New Testament, or canonical.
For the Gospel reading itself, the Gospel is brought from the altar to the ambo, and afterwards returned to its place.
A passage from one of the gospels is placed between the Alleluia or Tract and the Credo in the Mass.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles
Peter was one of the three Apostles (with James and John) who were with Christ on certain special occasions the raising of the daughter of Jairus from the dead (Mark 5:37; Luke 8:51); the Transfiguration of Christ (Matthew 17:1; Mark 9:1; Luke 9:28), the Agony in the Garden of Gethsemani (Matthew 26:37; Mark 14:33).
Peter returned occasionally to the original Christian Church of Jerusalem, the guidance of which was entrusted to St. James, the relative of Jesus, after the departure of the Prince of the Apostles (A.D. The last mention of St. Peter in the Acts (15:1-29; cf.
Peter's residence and death in Rome are established beyond contention as historical facts by a series of distinct testimonies extending from the end of the first to the end of the second centuries, and issuing from several lands.

 The Gospel According to Mark   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Peter also acknowledged him as his son in his general letter, saying in these words: "She who is in Babylon, chosen with you, sends you greetings; and so does my son Mark" (1 Pet.
Because the tradition that Mark, the interpreter of Peter, wrote the gospel, was started before Papias, it must have existed before the end of the first century.
John Mark's association with Peter was probably the source of this tradition, but there is no reason why Peter could not have two associates named Mark.

 Gospel of Peter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The gospel was used by the church at Rhossus and often quoted by Christian writers during the latter part of the second century.
Modern scholars initially had assumed that Peter was dependent upon the canonical gospels, but more recently the possibility has been examined that the passion narrative is in fact the earliest of the known accounts.
The Gospel of Peter was eventually branded as heretical, if for no other reason, because it seemed to deny the suffering of Jesus.

Soon after this, Peter and Rita were married, and Peter's desire to become involved in ministry led him to go to two years of seminary at Christ for the Nations.
Peter wants to help impart the significance of Israel as a nation and the vision for the prophetic purpose of Israel (Romans 11:25-26).
Peter says "God's Tsunami," is the move of the gospel expanding in a westward direction.

 Appendix 6 - Peter in Rome?
Peter, on the other hand, does seem to have been responsible for such a "planting of the Romans", at least in the indirect sense that his preaching and his authority was what influenced and motivated the founders of the first Christian community in Rome.
Peter's activity is well attested in the New Testament, and his story, as the chief spokesman of the apostles in Jerusalem and leader of the Jewish mission, would be of obvious interest to the Church worldwide.

 The Development of the Canon of the New Testament - Gospel of Thomas
It is doubtful whether this gospel was originally composed in Aramaic and then translated into Greek, although many of the sayings, like the oldest sayings of the canonical gospels, were certainly first circulated in Aramaic, the language of Jesus.
Some are known to occur also in non-canonical gospels, especially the Gospel of the Hebrews and the Gospel of the Egyptians.
One of the parables unique to this gospel, logion 97 (Empty Jar), was judged to probably be an authentic saying of Jesus by the Jesus Seminar, [FSB] p.

LXX Psalm 68 is the scriptural proof text for "vinegar and gall" in the death of the Messiah.
The Gospel of Peter 5 seems to side with Mark 15:23, Luke, and the CG, in that the enemies (the Jewish leaders in Peter's case) have selfish reasons to help Jesus out and are not doing him any favours.

In these first verses of his second epistle, Peter reminds his readers of just what the gospel is. These verses summarize the gospel according to Peter and the apostles, as opposed to the “new gospel” of the false teachers (2 Peter 2 and 3; see also Galatians 1:6-10; 2 Corinthians 11).
Peter indeed was not the same man we saw in the Gospels; Peter was transformed by the gospel.
Peter has written in his first epistle that ignorance is evident in conforming to one’s lusts, while implying that knowledge leads to obedience (1 Peter 1:14).

 The Goddess Within
Thus, while the Gospel of Peter has distinct similarities to the canonical gospels, the differences are substantial in terms of philosophy and church teachings.
Thus while the Gospel of Peter may well have been written earlier, there is still the open question as to its higher credibility than other gospels.
Even though the gospel was discovered in 1816 and a translation published six years later, it was quickly evident to scholars the gospel was “possibly of overwhelming importance”.

 Gospel of Peter
If, like me, you believe that it is the sketchy Gospel of Mark that was written earlier than the more detailed Matthew and Luke you might also think that the even more detailed Peter is based on all of the synoptics plus some more, even later, traditions.
Peter is shown to be late by some other points worth mentioning.
The evidence of having details from all three synoptics in Peter and the points mentioned above mean that Peter was certainly composed later than the synoptic gospels by someone with access to all three.

 COMMENTARY ON JOHN'S GOSPEL
The Gospel of John is one of the four Gospels which the early church authorised as being based on the evidence of eyewitnesses to the life of Jesus.
The material in John's Gospel is clearly connected with a Hebraistic background, and it is not changed to suit the convenience of the writer.
There is nothing in the Gospel to repudiate this idea, and the fact that John is not mentioned in the Gospel, and that John the Baptiser is simply called John would seem strong support for it.

 St Peter in Chains: Gospel of Mark, First Peter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Gospel of Mark was finally formulated in Rome during these same turbulent years, before the Fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, scholars say.
At the heart of Mark's gospel is his passion story, in which Jesus experiences a stark, brutal martyrdom that cannot be explained.
Peter, in his role as a disciple, appears at his weakest in Mark's story as he betrays his Master and weeps bitterly.

 Gospel of Matthew
It is usually thought that Mark's Gospel was written about A.D. 65 and that the author of it was neither one of the apostles nor an eyewitness of the majority of the events recorded in his Gospel.
Peter's status in Matthew accords with his standing in Antioch, said to be the first bishop there.
The earliest surviving writings which quote this Gospel are probably the letters of Ignatius, the Bishop of Antioch, who, while being taken as prisoner from the East to Rome about A.D. 110, wrote to various churches in Asia in Asia Minor and to the church at Rome.

     We have seen that the Gospel of Peter is quoted by writers of the latter end of the second century.
It is not wholly orthodox: for it throws doubt on the reality of the Lord's sufferings, and by consequence upon the reality of his human body.
But we, the twelve disciples of the Lord, were weeping and were in sorrow, and each one being grieved for that which had befallen 60 departed unto his own house.

It is attributed to John Mark (Acts 12:12; 15:37), an associate of Paul and a disciple of Peter, whose teachings the Gospel may reflect.
The unknown author, who claimed to be Peter the Apostle, relied on the canonical Gospels and on Revelation to John to construct a conversation between himself and Jesus regarding events at the end of the world.

 The Resurrection And The Gospel Of Peter
Even in the Gospel According to Matthew the earthquake and the angelic rolling back of the stone is just to reveal the already empty tomb, not to attempt a resurrection description with Jesus leaving the tomb then.
Another of these apocryphal gospels is the Gospel of Peter which exists at present in only a fragmentary state.
This Gospel of Peter's resurrection story with the giant Jesus (shades of Oral Roberts' vision!) and the talking cross coming out of the tomb is very unlike the canonical Gospels.

 Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?
The Gospels, written many decades after the fact, are a blend of fact and fantasy--historical fiction--and although the proportions of the blend may differ from scholar to scholar, no credible historians take them at 100% face value.
No one knows who wrote Mark--the Gospels are all anonymous, and names were formally attached to them much later, around the year 180.[46] Whoever wrote Mark is speaking from the historical perspective of a second generation of believers, not as an eye-witness.
This is a fragment of an extracanonical Gospel, purportedly authored by Simon Peter (which means it was composed by a creative Christian), that begins in the middle of what appears to be a resurrection story.

Down to 1886 scholars were aware of a Gospel of Peter, but not so much as a single quotation from it was known.
In the winter of 1886-7 a large fragment of the Greek text of the Gospel of Peter was discovered in a tomb of a monk at Akhmîm in Upper Egypt.
Written probably in Syria between 100-130 CE the Gospel of Peter shows acquaintance with all 4 canonical Gospels but seems, in general, to have taken only limited notice of them.

With regard to the last two points, the Petrine Gospel seems to present a later and more exaggerated form of the tendency perceptible in the Johannine, and fully worked out in the Acts of Pilate, to blame the Jews and exculpate Pilate.
This fact was recognised in subsequent times and condemned this gospel in the eye of the church.

The allegation is that Peter and Paul taught two different Gospels: 1) Peter's Gospel, consisting of Faith/Grace and Works and 2) Paul's Gospel consisting of Faith/Grace alone.
Paul took the controversy to Jerusalem and the one, true Gospel was vindicated by all: Peter, James and the whole Council and Jerusalem Church.
This is the Gospel as taught by Peter (and approved by the Jerusalem Council) and it is the Gospel as taught by Paul (who was present at the Jerusalem Council and did not dissent from the Council).

The Gospel of Peter and the Revelation of Peter.
The Revelation of Peter consists of images of paradise as well as ghastly descriptions of the souls suffering positive torments in Hell, a sort of precursor to _The Inferno_ of Dante.
The Revelation of Peter was included among the canonical works in the Muratorian fragment, but it was noted that this book was found unsuitable by some for reading at the mass (perhaps this was because it contained such a vivid portrayal of the souls suffering in Hell).

 Apocalypse Of Peter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
100-125 C.E. The Apocalypse of Peter is the earliest Christian reference to the afterlife, describing in vivid detail the paradise of Heaven and the torments of Hell.
The work is quite early, for it was referenced by Clement and likely used by the author of the Apocalypse of Paul; It may even predate the canonical Apocalypse (Revelation) of John.
It is difficult to speculate why it fell out of favor in the orthodox church, except perhaps that it was often associated with the heretical Gospel of Peter.

 Quodlibet Online Journal: On the Gospel Accounts of Peter's Denials of Christ - by Edwin K P Chong   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The event of Peter's denials of Christ is a frequent subject of Sunday sermons.
But a small thorny issue surrounds the Gospel accounts of this event, one that is a nagging distraction to serious hermeneutic exposition.
For if the the current manuscripts correctly reflect the original manuscripts with respect to Gospel accounts of Peter's denials, and we assume detailed inerrancy, then the three-denials solutions are inadequate because their defense involves only that the general meaning of Jesus' prediction (that Peter's denials will take place before daybreak) are consistent across the Gospels.
