Top best answers to the question «Is the gospel of thomas heretical»
As mentioned previously, if the date of composition comes before or during that of the canonical gospels, then the argument that Thomas is heretical because it was composed after the canonical gospels is de-legitimized.
- First, the early church never includes Thomas in any of its early canonical lists. In all the lists, we have four, and only four, Gospels. Second, the church specifically rejected Thomas as heretical. Meaning, it didn’t even come close.
