New Codex Tchacos Fragments
Alin Suciu reports on newly found Coptic fragments that appear to belong to Codex Tchacos, especially its Allogenes! (or the "other" Allogenes). This is exciting because, in my opinion, that treatise is by far the most interesting from Codex Tchacos. The Gospel of Judas is ok, but when I first read the published codex, I was enthralled by this Book of Allogenes.
I have a Ph.D. in Religion from Columbia University. I am currently a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Religion at Illinois Wesleyan University. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christians in their ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman environments.
