If the 1st edition of the Gospel of Holy 12 (GoH12) was published a
few years earlier than the Greek fragments of GoTh unearthed, we all
needs an explanation in why there are quite a few passages in the
GoH12 overlapped with GoTh. I did some research including visiting the
British Library to check it out. They said the 1st edition of the
GoH12 was destroyed during the WWII. Judging by the contents compiled
in the GoH12, I also feel that the GoH12 is a fake one. But some one
must prove that it is really a fake one. Nevertheless, there are a
few chapters (such as chapter 90 of GoH12) are worth of reading.
