Chapter Summary

It occurs at Lk 24.1, the strongest parallel to Gos. Pet. 12.50; at Acts 5.21 reporting the apostles arriving early in the morning at Temple, where on the road to Emmaus the travellers recount the experience of the women at the tomb on the resurrection morning. Thus, if the author of the Gospel of Peter is following the canonical accounts of the visit of the women to the tomb, then his narrative may have been influenced by the Lukan wording at this point. The manner in which Mary Magdalene is introduced suggests that she may not have previously featured in the narrative. Although the narrative contained in Gos. Pet. 12.50-13.57 most closely follows the Markan sequence of the visit of the women to the tomb (Mk 16.1-8),both the fear of the Jews and the rulers burning rage are new elements in comparison to that of the canonical gospels.

Keywords: canonical gospel; Gospel of Peter (12.50-54); Luke's gospel; Mary Magdalene; resurrection; women at the tomb
