Gospel of Basilides
The Gospel of Basilides is a "lost" text from the New Testament apocrypha by Basilides, mentioned by Origen, Jerome, Ambrose, Philip of Side, and the Venerable Bede. It was composed in Egypt around 120 to 140 AD. In all likelihood, this gospel was compiled of canonical gospels, the text being shortened and altered to suit Basilides's Gnostic tenets, a diatessaron, or harmony, on Gnostic (Docetic) lines.
