Translated and Annotated by Abraham Terian

It has never before translated into any modern language in its entirety and comprises of some forty stories about Jesus' family, birth, and childhood. These stories include references to Mary's Immaculate Conception through her ear, the foremother Eve's visit to the Christ child, and the schooling of Jesus, his encounters with his peers, and counsel against divorce and the death penalty. This book includes three early versions of the Protevangelium of James.
