bizarre midrash about how St Peter was a secret double agent who infiltrated Christianity to make it definitively incompatible with Judaism.

AFAIK, that's not a midrash per se, it's from some version of Toldot Yeshu, the medieval parody gospel. http://jewishchristianlit.com//Topics/JewishJesus/toledoth.html (See the last paragraph)

Meanwhile I once attended a bizarre lecture from a disgraced UPenn professor who thought that it was PAUL who was the secret double agent infiltrating Christianity on orders from the Romans to keep it from overthrowing Roman ethical norms involving slavery. Very little evidence, and very little logic, but it made an entertaining hour anyway.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
