Doubting Thomas

There are many people who have made the case that the Gospel of Thomas is more ancient than the canonical Gospels. Others have simply accepted the idea that the Gospel is independent from the canonical Gospels--that it preserves teaching of Jesus not found in the canonical Gospels. I have discussed some of these issues in my post on the Gospel of Judas.

Mark Goodacre has posted a draft of a paper he is working on concerning this topic. He shows that Thomas is dependent on distinctly Lukan terminology. Read it here. Today he responds to April DeConick who has critiqued it in a blog post of her own.
