Eric Beck: “Will the real Apocalypse of Peter please stand up?"
“Will the real Apocalypse of Peter please stand up?"
The Apocalypse of Peter is typically thought to be extant in two recensions, the Ethiopic and the Akhmīm, of which the former is almost universally agreed to be the more reliable witness to the earliest version of the text. If we compare the available manuscripts in detail, however, we find that there are actually three recensions and that, in places where the recensions share material, the Ethiopic might actually be the least reliable witness to an early form of the Apocalypse of Peter.
