First, there is the issue of whether this document is a modern forgery or a bona fide ancient text.The evidence seems to be quite strong that this is the latter.Second, when we hear the word ‘authentic’ regarding an early sub-Christian writing it is natural to conclude that authentic = true as regards the historicity of the Christian faith. All that is being claimed is that the manuscript really was produced in the late third century.Irenaeus was right: this is a fake gospel which promotes a heretical idea about Jesus of Nazareth.
