The Gospel of Peter and the Nazarenes


The fifth century “Church Father” Theodoret wrote:

‘The Nazaraeans are Jews who know Christ as a righteous man,
and use the Gospel called “according to Peter”.’
(Theodoret; of heretical Fables, ii. 2)

Some argue that this statement was incorrect and that Theodoret had confused the Gospel of Peter with the Gospel according to the Hebrews.  This seems likely since the fragment of the text of the Gospel of Peter that has survived seems anti-Jewish in nature.
