Lecture 25 12/8/09 Fundamental basics such as Christendom , Epics and Mass united early Europe Classical vs. Christendom Formation of Church New Testament (60-110AD) Textology Problems: oral literature (Questions about the transition from oral literature to written literature) / authorship. Multiplicity: Apocrypha texts / significant amount of Gospels (at least 30 survived). Ex: Nag Hammadi—Egyptian city where religious papyrus codices including Coptic and Gnostic texts are found. Those Gospels’ contents do not necessarily agree with each other. Gospel of Judas (Gnostic text) discovered in 1940-s is one example (Gospel is not portrayed as a traitor in this account but a positive character). Dualistic approach (opposition of two worlds: our world is the world of evil, everything good resides in the realm of light). Judas, according to Gnostics, was a facilitator for Christ to go to the realm of light. So, how does New Testament became the one that we’re reading now?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
