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. He is the one apostle
who truly understands Jesus.
This volume is the first publication
of the remarkable gospel since it was condemned as heresy by early
Church leaders, most notably by St. Irenaeus, in 180. Hidden away in a
cavern in Middle Egypt, the codex (or book) containing the gospel was
discovered by farmers in the 1970s. In the intervening years the papyrus
codex was bought and sold by antiquities traders, hidden 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 in 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
