Yet Another Story About Jesus Outside the New Testament
In this week’s episode, Calogero Miceli discusses his recent contribution to the online Christian Apocrypha resource on the Acts of Peter and the Twelve Apostles (http://www.nasscal.com/e-clavis-christian-apocrypha/). He explores the little-known account of Peter and the apostles’ journey in which they meet with a pearl merchant named Lithargoel and a physician accompanied by a young man. Near the end of the story the figures turn out to be Jesus which prompts questions about shapeshifting as a literary trope and also what the figure of Jesus’ appearance may have been.
