In the centuries around the beginning of the Common Era, both the Jewish faith and the early Christian church drew upon a wealth of spiritual stories and sacred writings that were nonetheless never included in the Hebrew Bible or the New Testament. With deft and profound scholarship, J. R. Porter gathers more than 100 such texts—including what were purported to be words written by Eve herself as well as stories of the strange miracles and violent outbursts of the boy Jesus—and assesses their context, character, and importance. Each fragment includes an introduction and commentary alongside a translation of the extract, as well as richly evocative illustrations that underline the power, insights, and literary merits of these writings.

 

En los siglos alrededor del comienzo de la era común, tanto la fe judía así como la iglesia cristiana temprana recurrían a una abundancia de historias espirituales y escrituras sagradas que no obstante nunca fueron incluidas en la Biblia hebrea o el Nuevo Testamento. Con una erudición profunda y hábil, J. R. Porter reúne más de 100 tales textos—incluyendo los que se dicen ser palabras escritas por Eva misma y historias de los milagros extraños y arrebatos violentos del niño Jesús—y analiza su contexto, su carácter y su importancia. Cada fragmento incluye una introducción y un comentario junto con una traducción del extracto, así como ilustraciones evocadoras que resaltan el poder, las perspicacias y los méritos literarios de estas escrituras.
