Publisher's Summary

The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, also commonly referred to as The Infancy Gospel of Thomas (not to be confused with the apocryphal book simply called the Gospel of Thomas), dates to AD 185 and tells stories of the early events in the life of Christ, including miracles; although, also included are stories depicting the childhood Jesus behaving less sacredly than one might expect, which may be exactly the reason why the infancy gospels were never considered canon by the Church. Presented here is a translation of one of the longer Greek versions and one of the longer Latin versions. These translations are from the 19th century.

Interesting

The stories are somewhat interesting, in both translations. Jesus was a handful, but the last story makes you think that maybe all he needed was someone to be patient and listen to what he had to say instead of trying to control him. Wish the rest of the stories where included from his teens.
