Nazarene Space

The International Nazarene Beit Din has made history today by canonizing the Gospel according to the Hebrews:

Obviously a true restoration of the ancient sect of the Nazarenes should, by definition, include the Gospel according to the Hebrews.

We the International Nazarene Beit Din do hereby declare the Gospel according to the Hebrews to be part of the Nazarene Canon.

We have no hesitation in pronouncing this book to be a work of Divine inspiration, great antiquity and interest, and a book that is entitled to a great circulation among those who take pleasure in studying the Word of YHWH.

We declare that this book is profitable for teaching (doctrine) and for reproof and for correction and for instruction in righteousness. While we pronounce this book to be part of the official canon of the Assembly, we do allow that a person who does not accept the canonicity of this book may still personally be in good standing with the Assembly.

While the Beit Din recognizes the canonical status of the Gospel according to the Hebrews in general, the book only has survived to us in the form of about fifty quotations
from so-called "Church Fathers" or as notations on other manuscripts. These and other sources have served as the basis for a reconstruction of the original Gospel according to the Hebrews by James Scott Trimm. To the extent that the reconstructed text reflects the original it is to be regarded as canon.
