Coptic Apocalypse of Peter, The

Late-third-century Gnostic writing, falsely ascribed to a prominent apostle; discovered at Nag Hammadi; frequently confused with the The Apocalypse of Peter, an early-second-century Christian text. The Coptic Apocalypse of Peter is a docetic writing, claiming that Jesus had no physical body: "The one whose hands and feet they nailed to the cross [was] only a fleshly substitute." No early Christian writer considered this document to have any authority for believers or any place among the canonical Scriptures. See also Apocalypse of Peter; canon; Docetism; Gnosticism; Nag Hammadi.
