Synopsis:
For 1,600 years its message lay hidden. When the bound papyrus pages of this lost gospel finally reached scholars who could unlock its meaning, they were astounded. Here was a gospel that had not been seen since the early days of Christianity, and which few experts had even thought existed–a gospel told from the perspective of Judas Iscariot, history’s ultimate traitor. And far from being a villain, the Judas that emerges in its pages is a hero.

In this radical reinterpretation, Jesus asks Judas to betray him. In contrast to the New Testament Gospels, Judas Iscariot is presented as a role model for all those who wish to be disciples of Jesus and is the one apostle who truly understands Jesus.

Discovered by farmers in the 1970s in Middle Egypt, the codex containing the gospel was bought and sold by antiquities traders, secreted away, and carried across three continents, all the while suffering damage that reduced much of it to fragments. In 2001, it finally found its way into the hands of a team of experts who would painstakingly reassemble and restore it. The Gospel of Judas has been translated from its original Coptic to clear prose, and is accompanied by commentary that explains its fascinating history in the context of the early Church, offering a whole new way of understanding the message of Jesus Christ.

Book Description: National Geographic Society, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd. 209 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. Seventeen hundred years ago, an unknown monk or scribe copied a gospel detailing the last three days of Jesus life from the perspective of Judas Iscariot. Condemned as heretical, the Gospel of Judas faded from view and the codex containing its only known surviving copy was hidden in a cave in the Egyptian desert. Ever since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Gnostic texts of Nag Hammadi, large numbers of the reading public have sought out books that explore the many gospels and religious teachings left out of the official canon. The Gospel of Judas central idea - that Judas was Christ s favourite and that he was asked by Jesus himself to set off the events that led to the Crucifixion and Resurrection - has been the subject of much discussion in the world s faith communities since the announcement of the gospel s discovery in 2006. The English translation of the Gospel of Judas published here is based on the collaborative work of Rodolphe Kasser, marvin Meyer, and Gregor Wurst, along with Francois Gaudard. Footnotes and endnotes help explain meaning, while the commentary that follows the translation help to place the Gospel in its proper historical and religious context.
