::Yes indeed.  I tried to keep the article on the New Testament focused on the New Testament itself.  In traditional Christian thought, the 4 gospels were written and completed before most or possibly all of the other 16 works mentioned were written.  We could of course get branch off on gnosticism, and, let's face it, it would be easy to fill many pages of information on non-biblical ancient works including the ones mentioned and many others.  And there may well be a place for that, but I think it would go beyond what I assume readers would want to see when they check up the article.  What is the New Testament?  At least those were my thoughts.

Yes indeed. I tried to keep the article on the New Testament focused on the New Testament itself. In traditional Christian thought, the 4 gospels were written and completed before most or possibly all of the other 16 works mentioned were written. We could of course get branch off on gnosticism, and, let's face it, it would be easy to fill many pages of information on non-biblical ancient works including the ones mentioned and many others. And there may well be a place for that, but I think it would go beyond what I assume readers would want to see when they check up the article. What is the New Testament? At least those were my thoughts. Thanks Learn together 11:24, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
