Oxyrhynchus Papyrus 1081
This Greek text is included by de Santos Otero, but no translation is offered below. The fragment is clearly Gnostic. According to Puech (Hennecke3, i. Eng. trans, p. 245) it is from the Sophia Jesu Christi (known in P. Berol. 8502 2 This manuscript also contains The Gospel of Mary and part of the Acts of Peter (q.v.) and from Nag Hammadi Codex III, 4). Klostermann included the text as the remains of an anonymous gospel or a Gnostic fragment. It dates from the third–fourth century and contains a conversation between Jesus and his disciples.
