Origen’s Use of Thomas

Keep an eye on the GThomas mailing list, because next month Stephen Carlson will be posting excerpts from his SBL paper, “Origen’s Use of the Gospel of Thomas”. Stephen’s abstract points to a conclusion that, “despite Origen’s recognition that the Gospel of Thomas did not rank with Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and despite the presence of some content he must have found objectionable, Origen nonetheless thought that the Gospel of Thomas contained historically useful and homiletically edifying material.” I’m looking forward to this list discussion, hosted of course by Mike Grondin.
