Johannes Waitz, also Hans Waitz, was a German Biblical scholar specializing in the New Testament Apocrypha and source-critical studies. He was Evangelical pastor in Darmstadt till 1927,[1] and not to be confused with the Austrian Catholic bishop of the same name.[2][3]

He was the advocate of a Petrine source text for Acts 8:5-25.[4] and attempted to identify Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 840 as part of the lost Gospel of the Nazarenes.[5] Waitz was the first to recognize parallel accounts in the two major pseudo-Clementines and postulated a "basic document" dated to the third century.[6]
