Apocalypse of Peter  

The Apocalypse of Peter is an early Christian text of the 2nd century.

It is not in the Bible, but is mentioned in the Muratorian fragment, the oldest surviving list of New Testament books. The Greek manuscript was unknown until it was discovered during excavations directed by Sylvain Grebaut during the 1886 season in a desert necropolis at Akhmim in Upper Egypt.

The fragment consisted of parchment leaves of the Greek version that was claimed to be deposited in the grave of a Christian monk of the 8th century. The manuscript is in the Coptic Museum in Old Cairo. The Ethiopic version was discovered in 1910.

Apocalypse of Peter is one of the most popular and widely quoted book dealing with visions of the end times.

It was written as a conversation between Jesus and his followers and describes the horrible things that happen in hell and all the awesome things that happen in heaven.

The Apocalypse of Peter is very detailed about the rewards and punishment facing those in heaven and hell. Those who are blasphemous to God are hung by their tongue, adulterous men and women are hung by their hair and feet respectively over boiling goop, and murderers are cast into a pit of horrible creeping things.

Meanwhile those who go to heaven sing beautiful music, have beautiful bodies with great skin, wear shiny clothes and smell nice.
