Researchers uncover earliest known Gospel copy about childhood of Jesus

An ancient manuscript fragment, long unnoticed in the Carl von Ossietzky State and University Library in Hamburg, Germany, has been identified as the earliest surviving copy of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas (IGT), dating back to the fourth or fifth century. This discovery marks a significant milestone in the study of early Christian texts.

 That's what it is. A few centuries after the fact.

 None of the New Testament authors knew Jesus personally. Even Mark was written in Rome, by a Greco-Roman many decades after the fact.

Fiction,ok. But 'fan fiction'?

Young Jesus is described as a nasty boy, not unlike that boy in "The Omen".

Yup, fan fiction.

As in, written by fans of the story that was prior to it being written down by fans of it, had only spoken about (ala the telephone game) around the fire in the evenin's...

Fan fiction because eventually, six or seven decades after the supposed event, some fans got together and started to add to the saga and wrote it down.

Fiction because... well... evidence or lack there of.
