Gospel of Cerinthus

Gospel of Cerinthus

The Gospel of Cerinthus is a lost gospel used by Cerinthus and by Carpocrates. According to Epiphanius [Pan. Haer. 28.5.1., I 317.10] , this gospel is identical with the Gospel of the Ebionites, and apparently, only a truncated version of the Gospel of Matthew. Bardy calls it a "Judaizing rather than Gnostic gospel. [New Testament Apocrypha, Schneemelcher, Wilson]
