7778Re:earliest Thomas reference ?
- Jun 4, 2007Andrew-
The earliest mention of the Gospel of Thomas by name is in Hippolytus, Refutation of All Heresies.
Saying 2 is quoted twice by Clement of Alexandria in the Stromateis, but it is ascribed to the Gospel of the Hebrews.
2 Clement 12.2 (I believe) is parallel to Saying 22 (I believe).
Both these near verbatim parallels can also be dated to the late second century.
