Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

One of our most important Biblical manuscripts, Codex Sinaiticus, includes two texts that you may never have heard of – the Epistle of Barnabas and the Shepherd of Hermas. These writings were clearly important and popular enough in the fourth century to be read alongside the Gospels and Paul’s letters. So why did some texts make it into the Bible and others not? We will consider first what is meant by ‘the canon’, and then look at a range of writings that are outside it, exploring what they might have to tell us about the early Jesus movement.
