A work of impressively detailed scholarship and commentary May 12, 2007
In a Malabar tradition arising from the first century of the common era, the apostle Thomas reached Kodungallur in Kerala in 52 AD where he began preaching the new religion of a risen Christ or savior named Jesus of Nazareth. Assuming this tradition is historically accurate, the question arises as to where he was ministering and teaching during the preceding two decades between the death of Jesus in about 33 AD and his arrival in Kodungallur. There is another tradition concerning Thomas about his going to the northern provinces of India and preaching to the communities there. "First Voyage Of The Apostle Thomas To India" by James Kurikilamkatt (a priest belonging to the Missionary Society of St. Thomas the Apostle) explores that early tradition and addresses the issue of Christian communities and Pakistan and India having the same apostolic patrimony of St. Thomas. A work of impressively detailed scholarship and commentary, "First Voyage Of The Apostle Thomas To India" is informed and informative reading which is readily and enthusiastically recommended to the attention of students of early Christian movements in general, and the life of St. Thomas the Apostle in particular.
