pp. 159-162; 234-275 On the Gospels of Cerinthus, Merinthus, the Ebionites, and the Nazarenes - with patristic quotations, translations, and notes. This book is an apologetic attempt to defend the NT canon, but has many detailed references on Jewish christianity from sources like Toland and Hegesippus. Pg. 160 connects the Cerinthians to the "Sunday Keeping" group of Ebionites mentioned in Eusebius, Church History, III.xxvi
