Discussion Lists

This is an unmoderated discussion list with a large readership (900+), a huge volume of mail (1000+ posts a month) and a wild and wacky variety of subjects. Anything and everything gets discussed, but the group maintains a focus by cycling through the sayings in order.

This is a moderated group for the scholarly study of Thomas. Most of the contributors aren't professional academics, but posters are expected to understand scholarly conventions and to avoid belief statements.

This started out as a discussion of Tim Freke and Peter Gandy's book The Jesus Mysteries, but is now a free ranging discussion of alternative historical approaches to the problems of early Christianity..


Early Christianity

The internet is an amazing resource for Biblical scholarship, particularly for NT studies. Here are some of the most useful sites.

The NT Gateway is maintained by scholar Mark Goodacre. This is a huge and well-organised collection of academically credible links. Mark's site on Mark without Q, concerning the interrelationships of the gospels, is also highly recommended.

All in One Biblical Resources Search. Also by Mark Goodacre. This lets you search all of the most useful biblical studies sites on the web in one go

Every single Christian writing, in or out of the NT, conventional or Gnostic, and every external reference to Christianity in the first two centuries is available through this web site, along with links to scholarly material on each piece. The format is somewhat cluttered, but the amount of material makes up for this. Also includes a page on theories of the Historical Jesus, and some online books.

The Gnosis Archive. Articles, scholarly and otherwise, on gnosticism ancient and modern. Their library contains just about every Gnostic text, plus much more, and is searchable.

Andrew Bernhard has given original language texts and/or translations for every noncanonical gospel or fragment from the first couple of centuries of Christianity.

Searchable translations of the Bible in several languages. There are several English translations that can be compared

Into His Own. Original translations of rabbinical and other Judaic texts that cast light on the world of Jesus.
