Gospel of the Nazoraeans
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
(Or Gospel of the Nazoraeans). A hypothetical Jewish-Christian text which, along with the Gospel of the Ebionites, appears to be a variation of the now-lost Gospel of the Hebrews—which itself is associated with the canonical Gospel of Matthew. There are no extant manuscripts of the Gospel of the Nazarenes, the Gospel of the Ebionites, or the Gospel of the Hebrews, and these texts do not appear in any ancient Christian Bibles or canonical lists.
