References in “50 Ways to Forge a Gospel”

References in “50 Ways to Forge a Gospel” November 20, 2015

At some point I’ll post a listener’s guide, if necessary, to the song “50 Ways to Forge a Gospel,” which I shared here recently, the YouTube video of which I’ve embedded above. It is full of references to specific forgeries, pseudepigraphies, novels, and other kinds of Jesus literature both ancient and modern, both canonical and extracanonical. Did you catch all the references? Did you get which books are being referred to? Share the ones you have successfully identified in the comments. I’m curious whether readers – individually or collectively – caught all of them!

If necessary, as I said, I’ll list them line by line in a later post. But I thought it would be more fun to see how many you spot on your own first!
