Apocryphal Christmas, reprised

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: Christmas Stories in Christian Apocrypha. The birth of Jesus in the apocryphal gospels (Tony Burke). I have noted this piece a couple of times before. But it's been a few years and 'Tis the Season, so here it is again.

If you want to read more about some of these texts, see here and links. And if you want to read the texts themselves, then buy Tony's and Brent Landau's book, New Testament Apocrypha: More Noncanonical Scriptures, volume one.
