The Gospel of Philip. By Mary Jane Chaignot. This Gospel is attributed to Philip primarily because he is the only named Apostle. Nothing in the text explicitly states that he wrote this book, but scholars are quick to point out that none of the canonical Gospels explicitly name their authors, either.

If grotesque, it is yet a Catholic novel. In form it follows Thomas, for it is divided into separate Acts, of which the manuscripts mention fifteen: we have Acts i-ix and from xv to the end, including the Martyrdom, which. Francois Bovon and Christopher Matthews utilize manuscript evidence gathered within the last half-century to provide a new translation of the apocryphal Acts of Philip.

The Acts of Philip is one of several texts comprising the New Testament apocrypha and has been referred to by scholars studying Christian origins and those considering the implications of the Jesus tomb.

The Acts of Philip is said to date back to the fourth or fifth century. The Acts of Philip The Acts of Philip is an extensive collection of loosely connected epi-sodes1. However, it is possible to identify four cycles within the mate-rial: chapters 1–2, 3–7, 8–14, and chapter 15 with the martyrdom2.
