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

Papyrus Merton 51

This dates from the third century and may be no more than a fragment of a homily or an exegesis of Luke 6: 7 . On the other hand it may be a fragment of an uncanonical gospel. It has been included here on the advice of T. C. Skeat, who compares this fragment with his P. Egerton 2.

The translation is based on the text as printed in the editio princeps.
