Quest for the Historical Apostles

Quest for the Historical Apostles


The stories and contributions of the apostles provide an important
entrée into church history. However, the legends of the apostles after
the New Testament are confusing and steeped in myth. This historical and
literary introduction uncovers the apostles' lives and legacies,
underscoring their impact on the growth of the early church.



While a good bit of the available information on the apostles comes
from the biblical texts, there are important extrabiblical sources from the
first and second centuries that have only recently emerged that shed light on
these figures and their legacies. Quest for the Historical Apostles brings all
of these sources together to offer a comprehensive analysis. This work explores
biblical and apocryphal material, the witness of early church historians, the
iconography of church art and liturgy, and contemporary scholarship to uncover
the journey of each apostle, and it locates figures such as Paul, Peter, and
John in the broader context of the history of the apostles. The author also
explores the continuing story of the gospel mission and the twelve disciples
beyond the New Testament, showing how their ministry encounters can provide
inspiration for all students of the early church.
