This edition has the original Greek text with the English from the New Scholars Version Translation.
The Infancy Gospel of James extends the canonical birth stories back to the circumstances surrounding the birth of Mary and childhood and ends shortly after the birth of Jesus. There is a dependence on the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Within the context, it is stated that it was written by James at the time of the death of Herod.
The Infancy Gospel of Thomas is a collection of largely self-contained stories that are loosely held together by a series of indications of Jesus’ age – five years. There is not enough to establish a genuine narrative thread. The author apparently was not the apostle. The name is pseudonymous. No date has been definitely set.
