The Apocryphal New Testament Easy to use collection of English translations of the New Testament Apocrypha.

The Apocalypse of Elias (Elijah)

This apocalypse is rejected as apocryphal in the Stichometry of Nicephorus and in the Catalogue of the Sixty Books. The text is known mainly in Coptic, although some fragments in Greek have been found. It is to be distinguished from an ancient Jewish Apocalypse of Elijah (of which a later Hebrew apocalypse survives), but the Coptic text may be a Christianized version of a Jewish original. It shows some dependence on the Apocalypse of Peter. Estimates of the date vary between the first and fourth centuries.
