"The Gospel of the Ebionites" in NTS





Honored to have been invited by Francis Watson, the editor of New Testament Studies, to contribute an article to the journal about my new book, Jesus and the Temple. My article, ‘“I Have Come to Abolish Sacrifices”: Re-examining a Jewish Christian Text and Tradition,explores how a particular passage from the Gospel of the Ebionites (a ‘text’ that exists only in fragments extrapolated from the writings of Epiphanius) raises a number of questions about the use of non-canonical gospel traditions in New Testament studies.
