The Gospel of Judas

The Gospel of Judas, by the National Geographic Society. When the bound papyrus pages of this lost gospel finally reached came to light after 1,600 years in obscurity, scholars were astounded. Here was a gospel told from the perspective of Judas Iscariot, history's ultimate traitor—but the Judas that emerges in its pages is a hero. Translated from its original Coptic, this volume marks its first publication since it was condemned as heresy by early church leaders, with commentary that explains its fascinating history in the context of the early church.
